CALL to ACTION re: Ohio House Speakership

Wednesday, January 25, 2023, 8:55 p.m.


In November, Ohioans voted in a super majority of 67 Republicans to the Ohio House, only to have this super majority hijacked by 22 dishonorable and unethical Ohio House Republicans who joined with all 32 Ohio House Democrats to elect unprincipled Rep. Stephens as Speaker of the House instead of Rep. Derek Merrin, who won the Republican caucus vote for this position.

WHAT’S AT STAKE: There is little doubt, Speaker Stephens plans to sell out all conservative issues this session to appease his House Democrat base. The only way we can overcome this is to move at least 5 to 7 of the 22 turncoats to our side on specific issues. The top issue for Democrats is to support PLANNED PARENTHOOD in making abortion a constitutional right in Ohio. The way we stop them is to get an amendment to the Ohio Constitution which requires future Constitutional amendments to pass with 60% of the vote instead of the current 50% + 1.

Take Action – Call and email these Ohio House Republicans

WHO WE ARE TARGETING: Only those of the 22 dishonorable Republicans we believe are most vulnerable will be targeted for this initiative. You can find these members and their contact information below.

Sample Message:
Dear Rep. ______________,

I was extremely shocked and irate you chose to betray me and other Republican voters who supported you by teaming with the all of the Ohio House Democrats to elect Rep. Jason Stephens as Speaker of the House. To start down the road to redemption, you must support the efforts of the Ohio Republican Caucus to pass HR 1 by February 1 to make the threshold to pass future amendments to the Ohio Constitution 60%. Not supporting this effort will prove you value abortion, the Democrats and especially PLANNED PARENTHOOD more than your own base!

I expect you to respond to this email ASAP!
