BEACHWOOD, Ohio – A northeast Ohio Congresswoman wants your vote. Democrat Marcia Fudge announced Monday she’s running for re-election.
At Beachwood’s Phil The Fire restaurant, Fudge unveiled her plans for returning to Washington, D.C. to represent Ohio’s 11th District.
“Many people in our district are struggling or frustrated with an economy and government policies that leave their best interests behind. They deserve a strong voice, a strong heart and proven leadership. I have a promise to keep. Moving this district forward is my top priority,” said Fudge.
As for the incumbent’s plans, Fudge says job creation will remain a major focus.
“Residents tell me time and again that the need for jobs and access to good paying jobs rank as their highest priority. That is why it is my top priority, as well,” said Fudge.
According to her campaign, Fudge also plans to continue her vigorous support for social safety net programs that are crucial to low-income families and seniors.
However, the Congresswoman’s return to the U.S. Capitol is not a sure thing.
Fudge is expected to face tough competition in next November’s election with State Sen. Nina Turner throwing her hat into the ring. Turner announced her candidacy last week.
