Ohio State Legislative Candidates

Dear Supporter,

Campaign for Liberty gave candidates for State House and Senate an opportunity to provide a straight answer to the following questions.  The candidates’ answers can be seen below the list of questions. Because general election information was not available in time, we were not able to send surveys to 3rd Party candidates.


  1. Will you oppose efforts to cooperate with a national ID card system and vote to block all state funding for and cooperation with any national ID scheme including the Real ID and Pass ID programs?
  1. Do you oppose the use of unmanned devices being used for law enforcement and given the power to fine citizens?
  1. Would you support a bill that would remove the state and local government’s power to use eminent domain to confiscate citizen’s private property to transfer it to another private party for economic development purposes?
  1. Will you support legislation to end the use of “no knock” warrants?
  1. Will you oppose all efforts to equip State police with “extraction devices” that download all of citizens’ cell phone information without a warrant?
  1. Will you support legislation that would allow TSA agents to be charged with sexual assault if they use invasive “pat-down” procedures?
  1. Will you support legislation that would allow school vouchers and school tax credits?
