On Tuesday, May 8, Dr. Beth Liston secured the Democratic nomination for State Representative in the 21st House District. Of the over 8,000 voters who cast a ballot in the Democratic Primary for Ohio’s 21st House District, 72% voted for Liston – the largest vote share of any contested House primary in Franklin County.
Beth Kowalczyk, a member of Worthington City Council and a voter in Tuesday’s primary said, “I’m proud to have cast my ballot for Beth Liston on Tuesday. She is a tremendously smart and capable woman who will advocate for the things that matter to our district, including access to healthcare, education, and supporting local communities. I’m looking forward to voting for her for the Ohio House on November 6.”
On election night, Dr. Liston was surrounded by her family, friends, and volunteers.
Upon learning the news of her victory, Dr. Liston stated, “It’s a humbling experience knowing that thousands of my neighbors cast their vote for me. When we started this campaign, we knew we wanted to be a grassroots-led organization, and I know that we wouldn’t be here tonight without the hard work of our volunteers. So many people talked to their neighbors, sent postcards, and participated in events so we could be here today. We’ll enjoy this victory tonight, but tomorrow we start focusing on the November election.”
