With over 100,000 doors knocked statewide this cycle and 600,000 Ohioans reached through digital ads, Conservation Ohio is working hard to elect environmental champions Rich Cordray and Betty Sutton

Cincinnati -- Today, Conservation Ohio launched a television ad in the Cincinnati media market, calling out Mike DeWine’s appalling record of putting the interests of his donors over the health of our children and environment.

Airing over the next three weeks in Cincinnati, this ad buy will total $525,000 or 1,750 points, ensuring that Cincinnatians across the region will see the message.

“The health of Ohio kids and our access to clean air is on the November ballot,” said Aryeh Alex, State Director for Conservation Ohio. “In Mike DeWine, we have a candidate who has consistently acted in opposition to what’s best for Ohio families. His crusade against air and water protections will undoubtedly make us sicker, yet he has also promised to cut access to hundreds of thousands of Ohioans’ healthcare and sued to stop individuals with pre-existing conditions like asthma from having access to healthcare.”

Our ad follows the narration of a child writing a letter to Mike DeWine asking him why he chose to support his corporate, polluting donor friends over kids across Ohio. The ad references DeWine’s lawsuit against clean air protections that would have prevented 90,000 child asthma attacks and 4,500 premature deaths each year by 2030. This is one of the clearest examples of DeWine’s failures as Attorney General and why Ohioans cannot afford his corrupt leadership to continue.

This election cycle, Conservation Ohio has been aggressively contrasting the views of Rich Cordray and Betty Sutton, and their plans for a healthier, more environmentally-friendly Ohio, with the backwards policy proposals of DeWine. We’ve now knocked on over 100,000 doors in Cleveland, Columbus, Toledo, and Lorain to support Rich Cordray and reached nearly 600,000 Ohioans statewide online with targeted digital ads.

“For months, we’ve been hard at work talking to voters across Ohio about environmental champions Rich Cordray and Betty Sutton,” said Alex. “With this ad buy of over half a million dollars, and our 100,000 doors knocked milestone, we’ve made it clear that Rich Cordray and Betty Sutton are the right choice in November. With just four weeks left in the election, we’re ramping up our field and digital programs to talk to hundreds of thousands of voters on the doors and on screens to ensure that Rich Cordray and Betty Sutton finish strong.”
