Lieutenant Governor Candidate Betty Sutton telling Allen County Democrats she is ready to fight for everyday, ordinary Ohioans. 

Sutton is running on the ticket with Richard Cordray, and was the keynote speaker for the Democrats annual Spring Dinner.  Sutton says during the campaign stops around Ohio, voters are looking for a Governor that works with them and for them.  She adds that they will be looking at putting funding back into public schools, making sure people have health care and good jobs to go along with it. 

Today, she announced that if elected, she and Cordray will also focus on closing the gender gap in the Buckeye State. 

“ We are going to establish a commission on Women and Girls that will focus on breaking down barriers to inequity that exist," says Democratic Candidate for Lt. Gov. Betty Sutton.   "Tomorrow (Tuesday) is equal pay day and women are still making far more less than what men do when they do comparable work.  And women of color make even far let than that.  That isn’t right, it is time that change.”

Cordray and Sutton will be facing off against 4 other Democratic tickets in the May 8th primary.  The winner will go on to face the winner of the Republican primary in the November election.
