OSMAPAC Announces 2020 Election Endorsements

As the political voice for the OSMA’s physician, resident and student members, the Ohio State Medical Association Political Action Committee (OSMAPAC) advocates for Ohio physicians by helping to elect state and federal candidates based on their commitment to physician and patient issues. Each year, we are proud to endorse candidates for U.S. House of Representatives, the Ohio Supreme Court and the Ohio General Assembly and share information about these endorsements with OSMA members.

After extensive consideration of candidate histories, careful review of candidate questionnaires, recommendations from local physicians, and some additional virtual candidate interviews, the OSMAPAC has made its selections for endorsed candidates for the upcoming 2020 election this November.

These selected candidates have shown dedication to making positive changes to healthcare and working on behalf of the issues impacting Ohio physicians. The OSMAPAC would like to thank all the candidates who participated in the questionnaire and interview processes, and the endorsed candidates for their continued support of the practice of medicine in Ohio.

The OSMAPAC is proud to endorse the candidacies of the following candidates for the 2020 election year. If you would like more details or are interested in information about further supporting the OSMAPAC mission and advocacy, please email Joe Rosato.
