She’s in the lead!

We celebrate all the Matriots-endorsed candidates who are winning! 

“I thought if I could get a seat at the table, I could make a difference.”

Due to an influx of absentee mail-in ballots, the final vote count for most races is several days away. However, many counties across Ohio have released preliminary results, and many Matriots-endorsed candidates hold a comfortable lead.

We celebrate all Matriots-endorsed candidates who are one step closer to victory. They are one step closer to claiming their seat at the tables where policies and legislation are written. They believe in their power to create change, and they are fiercely committed to improving lives in their communities.

Our candidates did what women do: they did the work. They rolled up their sleeves,  and they hit the campaign trail determined to bring new voices to the halls of power. Together, we will build a network of women who will create a better future.

She’s Ahead!

Join us as we congratulate the candidates who are currently in the lead.
