“Hoping to capitalize on the unusually large number of women running in Franklin County for the state legislature, a half dozen Democratic females on the ballot are forming a unique collaboration as they try to turn districts blue in November.
” “People don’t generally see candidates together, and they certainly don’t see a group of women together,” said Rep. Kristin Boggs of Columbus, who is the only Democratic woman in the legislature with small children at home. She is spearheading the effort, calling it Ohio Women Lead.
” “The goal is to amplify our voice, maximize our network and increase our capacity to reach as many voters as possible.” ”
