Sen. Nina Turner has officially announced her candidacy for Ohio Secretary of State.

Flanked by community leaders and elected officials, Sen. Turner launched her campaign Monday to run against Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted.

“I am running to be Secretary of State for all Ohioans," Turner said.  "Regardless of your party or your zip code, your vote should be counted” Turner said. 

“We need fair elections, we need to protect every Ohioan’s right to vote, and we need to attract high-quality jobs to this state.  In 2012, we saw the worst of election politics, and I am running because we can and must do better.”

“Sen. Turner is a thoughtful and passionate leader who cares deeply about all Ohioans,” said Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson.  “I am proud to stand with her and look forward to seeing her as Ohio’s next Secretary of State.”

Congresswoman Marcia Fudge agreed, saying, “We need a Secretary of State who will represent all Ohioans – and Sen. Turner is the right person at the right time.”

State Representative Nickie Antonio (D-Lakewood) said, “I believe Nina Turner will make Ohio the shining example of fair elections and voting rights.”

Sen. Turner is also focus on increasing economic growth and bringing more jobs to the state.

Sen. Turner has been a state senator since 2008. She previously served as the first African-American woman representing Ward 1 on the Cleveland City Council.
