Key Issues Facing Ohio
There are several issues that Michael has vowed to tackle while serving in Washington. Those issues include but are not limited to the following
Sanctity of Life
As a father of eight, Mike knows the most precious natural resource of the United States is found in its children. Progressives have routinely engaged in a “Shock Campaign” to desensitize the issue of life. Science has finally come to terms with the fact that life begins at conception and the new stance is that it “may be life but its not a human being.” There can be no mistake that life in the womb is human life, and the protection of human life must be afforded to the most innocent, the unborn child.
As the next Senator, Mike Leipold is committed to protecting life. He will oppose using taxpayer dollars to fund abortion providers and he will vote against all attemtps to allow late term abortions.
“I've noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.” (Ronald Reagan)
National Security begins with the states first response capabilities. Ohio’s Law Enforcement, Fire, and EMS response network is crucial in its ability to project a strong national security agenda. The Democrats have initiated a campaign to systematically dismantle institutions of law enforcement across the United States. This was abundantly evident in the failure of the Democrat leadership to denounce the recent riots. Our men and women within the ranks of first responders and the military deserve our support and respect. Its time the elected officials in Washington get on board or get out of the way. As the next Senator, Mike Leipold will back the blue and oppose all attempts to defund our police. As a father, he is committed to keeping our streets safe.

Upholding the U.S. Constitution, and the rights of the people guaranteed by the founders, is a key campaign issue. The current administration is in the process of enacting unconstitutional legislation to limit the people and their second amendment rights. Democrats have a long history of attacking the rights of law abiding citizens in an attempt to overlook their own inadequacies of enforcing laws. Cities with Democrat leadership continue to lead the nation in gun violence while boasting of their strict gun laws. Additionally, the Democrat leadership in Washington has initiated a drive to remove the freedom of speech from anyone that disagrees with them. Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Corey Booker and other prominent Democrats have continuously incited violence against Republicans, claiming their statements were taken out of context. It is time that the elected officials in Washington play by the same rules and stop the inflammatory rhetoric.
Ohio Jobs and Economy
President Trump’s “America First” agenda was key to the United States economic boom and lowest unemployment rates in the past fifty years. Mike believes in the “America First” agenda and will dedicate himself to pushing members of the Senate and House to reinstate policies that reflect the best interest of the Citizens of Ohio and the United States. As the next Senator, Mike is dedicated to providing strong leadership and representation for both small and large Ohio businesses in Washington. He will work to revive our economy and grow jobs and wages
For far too long, the citizens of this great country have had to endure the policies of career politicians that focus on their own interest. Mike supports term limits for Congress. He wants to restore the vision of our founding fathers that people will serve a short term in public office and then return back to private life. Term limits will allow the American citizen the ability to enjoy a more diverse agenda that is not fraught with conflict of interest.
Mike has seen first hand the dangers of opiate addiction and the plague that is facing this nation. He is a member of the American Counseling Association and is assisting those with addiction disorders in their recovery process. As the next Senator, Mike will work to improve education and social awareness to battling this pandemic.
Having proudly served 22 years in the United States Army, Mike knows the sacrifices our veterans have made to preserve our liberty and freedom. Ensuring that the needs of every veteran is taken care of, to include assistance in transitioning to the civilian sector, is a small price to pay for their selfless service. As the next Senator, Mike is dedicated to Ohio veterans and is committed to protecting and caring for those that have served this country.
Mike is an advocate of equality and believes that all population groups deserve equal opportunities to make the most of their lives and talents. Martin Luther King said it best when he stated that he had a dream that his four children would “Live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” We live in a country where skin color, gender, religious belief, and ethnicity is protected and all are afforded life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
