Jefferson County Democrats Endorse Zack Space, candidate for Ohio Auditor

STEUBENVILLE, OH – Chairman Frankie DiCarlantonio of the Jefferson County Democratic Party has announced that the Jefferson County Democratic Party has endorsed Zack Space, Democratic Candidate for Ohio Auditor of State.

Space, a former U.S. Congressman from Appalachian Ohio, is centering his candidacy around shining a light on the corrupting influence of money on public policy and ending partisan gerrymandering.

“Ohioans up and down the Ohio River have justifiably lost faith in our state’s democracy. Whether it’s the ECOT fiasco or corrupt payday lenders, we see self-interested politicians in Columbus time and again doing the bidding of powerful special interests and serving their wealthy campaign donors while ignoring our needs at home,” Space said. “I am thrilled to receive the endorsement of the Jefferson County Democratic Party, and am committed to using the broad power of the Auditor of State’s office to shake up Ohio’s badly broken political system and restore confidence in Ohio’s democracy.”

Space will advance to the November General Election as the Democratic nominee, having no Primary opposition within the Democratic Primary.

“I am excited to be able to endorse Zack Space for State of Ohio Auditor,” commented Frankie DiCarlantonio, Jefferson County Democratic Party Chairman. “Zack has a proven record of service to the State of Ohio during his time as a member of the US Congress on behalf of the people of Appalachian Ohio. He understands the problems in Southeast Ohio and will work hard with everything under his job duties as Auditor for our area.”
