EMILY's List
With dangerous abortion restrictions moving through the Ohio legislature, it has never been more important to elect a Democratic pro-choice woman as governor of Ohio.
SEIU District 1199
Nan has spent her career fighting to make sure that all Ohioans have access to a living wage and fair working conditions — the keys to building a vibrant middle class. Now, more than ever, we need her leadership in the Governor’s Office.
State Rep. Dontavius Jarrells
Ohio needs a governor who has the vision and leadership style to bring economic prosperity to everyone in Ohio — and that person is Nan Whaley. Nan is the type of leader who leaves no one behind, whether it’s focusing on economic prosperity or treating addiction as the disease that it is. That’s why I’m endorsing her for Governor.
Hamilton County Sheriff Charmaine McGuffey
I’m proud to support Mayor Nan Whaley to be Ohio’s next governor. She’s led the way on implementing commonsense police policy changes by bringing together folks from across her community to address challenges together — building trust and making everyone safer in the process. I know she’ll take this same spirit to the Governor’s Mansion.
Cleveland City Councilman Blaine Griffin
Nan has led Dayton through its toughest moments — a KKK rally, tornadoes, a mass shooting, and the COVID-19 pandemic. Each time, Dayton came out stronger thanks to her leadership. That’s the sort of strength and compassion that our state government is sorely lacking. Ohio deserves better, and that’s why I’m proud to support her for Governor.
