From its headquarters in Columbus, the Republican Senate Campaign Committee manages an unparalleled full-time, year-round operation that oversees all aspects of a successful legislative campaign effort.
Republicans took majority control of the state senate in 1984, amid the landslide re-election of President Ronald Reagan (who carried 49 states that year) and the rising unpopularity of Ohio’s Democrat-dominated legislature. The previous year, Senate Democrats voted to approve a 90 percent tax increase to offset a massive shortfall in the state’s poorly managed budget. Voters revolted and handed the Senate majority to Republicans, who have not lost it since.
Through changes in political control of the Governor’s office and the Ohio House of Representatives over the decades, the Ohio Senate has remained a Republican firewall to a liberal agenda that wants desperately to move Ohio in the wrong direction.
Led by Ohio Senate President Matt Huffman and the Ohio Senate Majority Leadership Team, in 2022, RSCC reached a milestone, winning the largest Ohio Senate supermajority in modern history. Through a talented team across the state, the Committee has evolved to become one of the most respected legislative political machines in the nation, adopting the latest in campaign technology and tactics.
