How will history remember their time in office?

As the calendar turns over to a new year, we thought we’d select a smattering of Ohio’s legislators in the U.S. House of Representatives and, in light of recent votes, make some guesses as to their enduring political legacies. Let's take a look!

Rep. Jim Jordan, Urbana

On the same day a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol amid cries of “Hang Mike Pence!” Rep. Jordan voted to reject the results of the November 2020 presidential election in the states of Pennsylvania and Arizona.

Rep. Bill Johnson, Marietta

On the same day a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol and carried a Confederate flag through its halls, Rep. Johnson voted to reject the results of the November 2020 presidential election in the states of Pennsylvania and Arizona.

Rep. Bob Gibbs, Lakeville

On the same day a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol and killed a Capitol police officer, Rep. Gibbs voted to reject the results of the November 2020 presidential election in the states of Pennsylvania and Arizona.

Rep. Steve Chabot, Cincinnati

Rep. Warren Davidson, Troy

On the same day a pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol and ransacked the offices of his fellow congressmen and congresswomen as they feared for their lives, Rep. Davidson voted to reject the results of the November 2020 presidential election in the states of Pennsylvania and Arizona.
