ZANESVILLE, Ohio – Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor, Betty Sutton, campaigning in Zanesville with five days left before Election Day. 

Sutton, who is running alongside Democratic candidate for Governor, Richard Cordray; feels the race has been going well. They have been all around Ohio earning people’s votes and listening to Ohioans’ concerns and hopes. She says it’s really important to explain to the people their vision for Ohio. Sutton believes the defining issue in Ohio is health care, Sutton says she and Cordray have stood on the side of protecting people with pre-existing conditions.

“When I was in Congress in fact, I passed an amendment to stop insurance companies from being able to discriminate against people with pre-existing medical conditions immediately. And we are very, very committed to making sure that those protections stay in place,” Sutton said.

Sutton also discussed her support of overtime pay for hardworking citizens. She says her main goal as Lieutenant Governor is putting the people first.

“Making sure that people have a pathway to a good job, a good life to the middle class, and no matter who you are, or where you’re from in Ohio, we want you to be able to access it here,” she added.

Election Day is on Tuesday, November 6th.
