2022 BFA-PAC Grades and Endorsements for the August Ohio Primary

Back to Main Voter Guide Page

Because lawmakers struggled to finalize district maps, the Ohio Primary Election for 2022 will be divided into two separate elections: the first on May 3, and the second on August 2.

The August 2 Primary ballot will include candidates for State Senate, State House, and State Central Committee.

NOTES:

  • The following grades and endorsements may not be complete. We will continue to update our grades / endorsements as we collect additional information.
  • ?? generally means the candidate did not submit a survey.
  • "q" after a grade means we have no legislative votes, and we are basing the grade primarily on survey answers.
  • In some races where there are multiple good candidates, we choose to not endorse in a primary.

Please help spread the word and encourage your friends and family to vote their gun rights freedoms first!
