Tonight, Jim Renacci delivered the following statement after winning re-election in Ohio’s 16th district:
 
“I am deeply humbled by the opportunity that voters in the 16th district have given me to serve again as their voice in Washington.  Throughout this race, and again tonight, my thoughts have remained with the millions of Americans who are out of work and who continue to struggle through deeply difficult times.   As I have always said, this race was about them, not about partisan politics, and I look forward to getting back to work on behalf of the district and doing the heavy lifting that is needed to repair our broken economy.  I sincerely congratulate Congresswoman Sutton on her service to the people of Ohio and on running a very strong campaign.”

COOK POLITICAL REPORT SHIFTS OH-16 RACE RATING FROM “TOSS UP” TO “LEAN REPUBLICAN”


Good Morning,


In case you missed last night’s news, Charlie Cook, one of America’s leading political analysts and election forecasters, shifted the race rating in Ohio’s 16th congressional district from “Toss Up” to “Lean Republican”.  The ratings shift in favor of Jim Renacci was predicated on recent polling from both Republicans and Democrats showing Renacci consistently leading Betty Sutton as we approach Election Day.  A survey released just last week showed Renacci had widened his lead to 10 points, leading Sutton 51%-41% among likely voters and those who had already voted in the 16th district.

 

“The only poll results that matter are the results we will see next Tuesday, but I remain deeply grateful for the strong support and continued momentum voters in the 16th district have given to our campaign.  At a time when America is drowning in debt and our economy has been robbed of the recovery that was promised under the failed policies of the past four years, I would be honored to earn the chance to continue fighting for the pro-growth agenda American families, workers and businesses need to get our country and our economy moving again,” Jim Renacci said today.

RENACCI STATEMENT ON OCTOBER JOBS NUMBERS

 

 

 

Good Morning—

 

 

Earlier today Jim Renacci released the following statement on the October jobs report, which showed the unemployment rate has risen to 7.9%.  

 

 

 

“This morning’s report from the Labor Department was a crushing reminder that President Obama’s economic agenda has failed—not that the 23 million Americans struggling to find work needed another reminder. The unemployment rate today is higher than it was when President Obama took office, and if you factor in all those who have dropped out of the labor force since 2009, it’s much higher.  Not a single net new job has been created in America during the past four years, while millions of families have fallen into poverty.  The tax, spend and borrow policies pursued by President Obama and Betty Sutton have not brought us a recovery, they’ve brought us massive new debt and the worst jobs crisis since the Great Depression. 

 

 

 

“Middle class families have been crushed under the Obama-Sutton trickle down government experiment and the status quo of endless, crippling unemployment is simply unacceptable. If we want a real economic recovery, we must elect individuals who understand how our economy works and that it’s the private sector, and not government, that will lead the way to job growth and recovery. I believe Governor Romney and I have both shown we have the background and experience to get America and Ohio moving in the right direction again.”

OH-16 POLL: RENACCI PULLING AWAY, NOW LEADS SUTTON 51%-41%
 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

OH-16 POLL:  RENACCI PULLING AWAY, NOW LEADS SUTTON 51%-41%  

Good Morning—

Today, pollster Wes Anderson with OnMessage Inc. released the latest poll results from the race in Ohio’s 16th congressional district     between Jim Renacci and Betty Sutton.  As the polling memo below indicates, Renacci now leads Sutton by a 10-point margin, 51%-41% among likely voters and those who have already voted.  While Renacci has led Sutton in all recent polling, he has now widened his lead.

 “While the only poll results that truly matter are the results on November 6th, this survey illustrates the growing momentum and support for Jim Renacci’s campaign that we have seen building on the ground for months.  Voters are not only rejecting Betty Sutton’s failed, big government economic policies, they have also rejected the substance-free gutter politics that have consumed her campaign.  Jim Renacci is proud to have run a positive, issues-based campaign focused on his plan to get Ohioans back to work—and as a result, voters are now poised to send him back to work as their voice in Washington,” Renacci spokesman James Slepian said.

In recent days, the media has also highlighted the Renacci campaign’s innovative strategy to navigate the over-saturated Cleveland media market that has been bombarded with political advertising since the spring.  Rather than waiting until the final weeks of the campaign to attempt communicating broadly with voters on heavily cluttered broadcast networks in Cleveland, Renacci began airing broadcast and cable ads as early as August, while opting to run a more targeted campaign in the final two weeks centered on more direct voter contacts.  Today’s poll results lend further merit to that strategy and the Renacci campaign will continue with both cable and highly targeted broadcast advertising between now and Election Day. 

Below you will find the polling memo released this morning from Wes Anderson with OnMessage Inc.  

From:              Wes Anderson, OnMessage Inc.

Date:               October 25, 2012

Re:                  Key Findings in Ohio’s 16th Congressional District

The following survey was conducted by OnMessage Inc. in Ohio’s 16th Congressional District.  Telephone interviews were conducted October 25, 2012.  This survey consists of 400 likely general election voters and was stratified by county to reflect historic voter trends. The margin of error for this survey is +/- 4.9%.

 

 

Bottom-line: Heading into the home stretch, this race is trending significantly toward Renacci.  The ballot now stands at 51% for Jim Renacci to 41% for Betty Sutton.  Only 7% of the electorate is still undecided.

 

Key Findings

·       The Presidential ballot is 50% Romney and 43% Obama with only 6% undecided.  At this late point in the race, the 16th will most likely go for Governor Romney on Election Day by four or five points.  We’ve seen a steady trend line of improvement for Romney in this district since the first presidential debate in early October. 

·       That brings us to the ballot which is 51% Renacci to 41% Sutton with 7% undecided and 1% other.  Keep in mind that our methodology is designed to capture those voters who have already cast a ballot as well as those likely voters who have yet to vote. 

o      When we look at the ballot by partisanship we find an intensity gap favoring Renacci.  Renacci is currently receiving the support of 91% of Republicans while Sutton is garnering just 78% of Democrats. 

o      Independents currently break for Renacci 48% to 26% with 26% undecided.

o      By vote behavior (how do you usually vote) Renacci’s advantage with voters in the middle is even greater.  Among Ticketsplitters (those who say they vote for both a mix of Democrats and Republicans) the ballot stands at 51% Renacci to just 35% Sutton.

At the strategic level Renacci’s message is clearly resonating with the voters of the 16th district.  At a tactical level Renacci’s strategy of pursing a comprehensive voter contact plan across all platforms, from broadcast television to new media outlets, is paying off big.  We feel very confident that Jim Renacci will be re-elected Congressman from the 16th District.

RENACCI STATEMENT ON SECOND PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

RENACCI STATEMENT ON SECOND PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE
 
Good Morning—
 
Today, Jim Renacci released the following statement on last night’s presidential debate:
 
“If President Obama’s goal was to provide the American people with a solid vision for the future and assurances that his second term would be different than his first, last night’s debate was another complete failure.  Americans heard nothing but the same tired excuses for why the economy is still not growing at a healthy rate, why millions remain out of work, why a record 50 million now live in poverty and why our national debt has grown by $5 trillion in the last four years alone.
 
“Certainly, the President was more animated than in his first debate appearance, which was clearly one of the worst performances by any candidate that we’ve seen in modern history.  But while he managed to meet the shockingly low expectations he set for himself on stage, his performance as a president falls far below the expectations set by the American people.  He promised to cut the deficit in half, instead it has skyrocketed.  He promised to bring unemployment below 6 percent, instead 23 million Americans are jobless or underemployed.  He promised to cut health care costs by $2,500, instead they’ve increased by $2,500.  At nearly every turn, he has failed us.
 
“Once again, Mitt Romney provided a clear vision for America’s future and a plan to restore strength and stability to an economy that has suffered badly under the failed policies of President Obama and his allies in Congress.  Governor Romney laid out the clear choice our country faces on November 6th and offered Americans the path back to prosperity we so desperately need.”

RENACCI STATEMENT ON VICE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE
 
Good Evening—
 
Tonight, Jim Renacci released the following statement on the Vice Presidential debate:
 
“During tonight’s debate, Ohio voters witnessed the stark differences between the candidates’ visions for America’s future. Joe Biden was unable to defend the failed policies of the Obama Administration and outlined no new plan for a second term besides more taxes, more regulation and more government spending. But after four years of chronically high unemployment, increased health care costs, and trillions in debt, America simply cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s failed policies. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will do what Barack Obama and Joe Biden have failed to do: create jobs, increase take-home pay, and deliver a real economic recovery that strengthens Ohio middle class families.”

RENACCI FIGHTS FOR JOBS, SUTTON FIGHTS HER OWN RECORD AT 16TH DISTRICT CONGRESSIONAL DEBATE

RENACCI FIGHTS FOR JOBS, SUTTON FIGHTS HER OWN RECORD AT 16TH DISTRICT CONGRESSIONAL DEBATE

Good Afternoon—

Earlier today, Jim Renacci scored an overwhelming victory at the 16th district congressional debate, held at the Cleveland City Club.   Hamstrung by her rubber stamp support for the failed fiscal policies that have left over 20 million Americans out of work or underemployed, and a record 50 million in poverty, Congresswoman Sutton struggled badly to answer for her dismal economic record in Congress.  In contrast, Jim Renacci offered the audience a clear alternative to the job crushing, big-government policies of the past four years that have paralyzed the economy and devastated working families across America.

“This race isn’t about the two of us, it’s about the 23 million Americans who are out of work or underemployed.  It’s about the 47 million on food stamps and the record 50 million now living in poverty,” Renacci said while painting a picture of Betty’s Sutton’s record in congress.  

As he has throughout the race, Renacci demanded the federal government cease the endless conveyor belt of tax hike threats, reckless spending and job crushing regulations that have been the foundation of the Obama-Sutton economic agenda.  When asked what she would do to spur job creation, Sutton struggled, offering nothing more than the same hollow talking points and failed policies that brought America the worst jobs crisis since the Great Depresssion.

RENACCI HONORED TO HAVE RECEIVED HIGH MARKS FROM CITIZEN VOTER GROUP
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

RENACCI HONORED TO HAVE RECEIVED HIGH MARKS FROM CITIZEN VOTER GROUP
 
 
Good Morning—
 
Over the past several months, Jefferson Action, a national non-partisan organization dedicated to boosting voter participation and issue awareness in elections, targeted the congressional race in Ohio’s 16th district as the focus of the nation’s only 2012 Reclaim November project.  The unique process drew widespread media attention this year as it sought to foster an honest evaluation of the candidates by well-informed voters, outside the filter of the endless political advertising that has saturated Ohio’s airwaves for months.
 
Beginning in July, the organization convened three separate, randomly selected voter groups from across the district to identify the top issues facing the community, and to ultimately evaluate each candidate’s platform and performance on those issues.
 
The citizen voter groups, comprised of seven Republicans, seven Democrats and ten independents, cited weak economic growth, high unemployment and the growing national debt as the top three issues facing the region.  Throughout the process, experts from seven different universities worked with Jefferson Action and the voter groups to provided in-depth, non-partisan information on each of these issues before they evaluated the candidates.
 
As was reported earlier this morning, the participating voters gave high marks to Congressman Jim Renacci for his platform on ending weak economic growth, fostering job creation and tackling the national debt.   
 
“At a time when families across our district continue to struggle in a weak economy and under the weight of our country’s skyrocketing debt, I was honored to participate in this outstanding process, which helped facilitate a much needed, spin-free dialogue between voters and their representatives on how we can tackle these challenges.   While I was pleased to have received positive feedback from the voters on many of my policy positions, what’s most important is that the conversation between voters and their elected officials continues—both in this district and in every district across the country.  The problems we face as a nation are not Republican problems or Democrat problems, they are American problems that require Americans to come together to find solutions that will serve us all,” Jim Renacci said today.

RENACCI STATEMENT ON SEPTEMBER UNEMPLOYMENT REPORT
 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
October 5, 2012
 
Contact: James Slepian
330 336 3001
 
RENACCI STATEMENT ON SEPTEMBER UNEMPLOYMENT REPORT

Good Morning—
 
Today, Jim Renacci released the following statement on September’s unemployment report:

“This morning’s news from the Labor Department that hiring has slowed and our economy added fewer jobs in September than in August is certainly nothing to brag about, and I sincerely hope President Obama and Congresswoman Betty Sutton will view it for what it is, a continuation of the worst economic recovery in modern American history.  While any job creation at all is certainly good news, the 114 thousand jobs created in September barely puts a dent in the more than 20 million Americans who still cannot find a full-time job, the 47 million who are now on food stamps and the record 50 million people now living below the poverty line. The fact remains that if the ‘official’ unemployment rate took into account the millions who have given up even looking for work since President Obama took office, the rate would be well above 11 percent.

“Growth was 1.9 percent in the first quarter of this year and 1.3 percent in the second quarter. We risk backsliding to recessionary levels, although most Ohioans would agree it feels like we have never actually recovered from the last one. Numbers like these illustrate the magnitude of the dire economic situation we face. Simply put, Ohioans cannot afford four more years like the last four. The hollow promises of Barack Obama and Betty Sutton have not left us better off. We must get off this road to economic stagnation and back on the path to prosperity. Fortunately, next month Ohio voters will have the opportunity to change course for the better.”

RENACCI REACTS TO FIRST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE
 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

RENACCI REACTS TO FIRST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE
 
Good evening—
 
Tonight, Jim Renacci offered the following statement reacting to the first Presidential debate of the 2012 campaign:
 
“Tonight, while President Obama desperately tried to apply lipstick to the last four years of failure and fatigue that have defined his presidency, his hollow words offered little comfort to the 23 million Americans who can’t find a full-time job or the record 50 million who now live in poverty. In contrast, Mitt Romney put forth a clear plan for economic recovery that puts our nation’s future back in the hands of American families and businesses, rather than under the thumb of Washington politicians and government bureaucrats.

Gov. Romney’s vision for our country involves less government, lower taxes on the middle class and fewer overly burdensome regulations on businesses. That is the formula for job creation. Predictably, President Obama sought to hide his platform of higher taxes on working families, endless red tape and an all-powerful Washington bureaucracy behind the same tired talking points and empty promises we’ve heard repeatedly throughout his presidency. Those are the same failed policies that have devastated millions of American families and kept our country paralyzed in the worst jobs crisis since the Great Depression.

Simply put, Gov. Romney showed once again that he has the right policies to foster job creation and get our economy headed in the right direction. At the same time, President Obama failed to make the case that he deserves a second term in office. In fact, the President’s answers made it sound an awful lot like he’s still living in 2008 and wishing, like most of us do, that the last four years never happened.  I never heard him take responsibility for racking up $5 trillion in debt in just four years or for overseeing 43 straight months of an unemployment rate over eight percent. It would seem Barack Obama’s slogan ‘Forward’ is merely an attempt to skip over the last four years of failure. Ohioans were fooled badly four years ago, and we can’t afford to get fooled again.”

RENACCI RAISES OVER $600,000 IN Q3
 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

RENACCI RAISES OVER $600,000 IN Q3, HAS NEARLY $1 MILLION CASH ON HAND HEADING INTO OCTOBER
 
 
Good Afternoon—
 
Following a very successful second quarter, during which Jim Renacci outraised Betty Sutton by a huge margin, the wave of momentum behind the Renacci campaign continued into fall.  Today, the Renacci campaign announced that it bested last quarter’s figures by more than $100,000, raising over $600,000 in the third quarter.  The campaign will also report nearly $1 million cash on hand heading into the final month of the race.  

In contrast, Congresswoman Sutton has proved to be an anemic fundraiser, particularly for a three-term incumbent.  Sutton’s weak fundraising to date has had a devastating impact on her struggling campaign, which has apparently lacked the resources to run a single television commercial so far, even though early voting has already begun in Ohio.  To this point, Sutton has relied exclusively on outside liberal special interest groups to run her campaign—the same type of outside spending she has continually feigned outrage over on the campaign trail.

“I remain humbled by the outpouring of support Ohioans have lent to our campaign as I’ve fought to save Medicare and to end the reckless economic policies that are crippling working families in our community.  Congresswoman Sutton is one of the most liberal politicians in America and the voters in the 16th district are making it clear that they refuse to let her far-left special interest friends in Washington buy her another term in Congress,” Renacci said today.

RENACCI RELEASES NEW TV SPOT: “FIGHTER”

Good Afternoon—

Today, Jim Renacci released his campaign’s newest ad, “Fighter”.   Last week, Democrats aired a despicable television ad suggesting that Jim Renacci doesn’t stand up for victims of cancer.  Falsely attacking a cancer survivor on the number two killer in America is a new low—even for Betty Sutton’s team.

The ad will begin running this weekend on both broadcast and cable networks across the district.
