Michael Wager opens congressional campaign office in Solon

Michael Wager opens campaign office in Solon
Michael Wager, the Democratic Party candidate to run in November for Ohio’s 14th Congressional District, recently opened up a campaign office in Solon.

Wager of Moreland Hills will face two opponents in the election.

U.S. Rep. Dave Joyce of Russell Township who won a Republican Party primary to secure his party’s nomination to run again.

Solon Libertarian David Macko will also appear on the ballot as he was unopposed in his party’s primary.

The congressional district consists of all of Lake, Geauga, and Ashtabula counties, plus portions of Cuyahoga, Portage, Summit and Trumbull counies.

Wager said in a news release to announce the office's opening that it will take a strong grassroots effort to defeat Joyce.

“I’m proud that our campaign has the support of so many enthusiastic volunteers who are ready to fight for working families, for women, for seniors and for students in Ohio’s 14th District,” Wager said.

Wager said his campaign would focus on the need to create jobs at livable wages, including raising the minimum wage.

There are no Democrats in America. Just Communists and National Socialists.

Anonymous........you NAILED the truth with that comment!!!! KUDOS!!!! My lifelong Democrat parents, if alive today, would find today's DIM platform completely dovetailing everything they warned me about growing up. My father fought in a war to defeat the same socialistic principles on display today, in our own backyard. The ironic part is, if Dim's came out and truthfully told you what they REALLY stand for, and are incrementally working to achieve, they would NEVER be elected. No, they must hide their true intentions, and call themselves "dimocrats", so as to give the illusion that they "represent the middle class, and the oppressed". Pathetic.
