That is why I’m proud to support Kathleen’s campaign for Secretary of State” said Congressman Ryan. “We need more leaders like Kathleen in Columbus, who will end the partisan games and put Ohioans first. Once elected I know we will immediately get to work as she always has to ensure every Ohioan’s voice is heard and every Ohioan’s vote is counted.”
