Frank LaRose serves as Ohio’s

51st Secretary of State 


He oversees a statewide constitutional office responsible for managing elections and incorporating new businesses. As the state’s chief election officer, LaRose works with 88 county boards of elections to ensure the security, accuracy, and accessibility of Ohio’s voting process. He’s positioned Ohio as a leader in business incorporations, election integrity, and voter participation, earning re-election in 2022 with more votes than anyone in the history of the office. 


His passion for leadership and public service was developed at a young age as an Eagle Scout. He joined the Army out of high school and became a Special Forces Green Beret. He continues to serve today with a Special Forces unit of the U.S. Army Reserve.

Columbus OH – Frank LaRose released the following statement on tonight’s Ohio Senate primary election results:

“I’m honored and humbled by the thousands of Ohioans who stood with me in this campaign. While this is not my time to serve as our party’s nominee for the United States Senate, I’m profoundly grateful for those who gave me their support.

A lot of people warned me about getting into a contest with a powerful, entrenched incumbent and two wealthy self-funders. They said I’d be unfairly attacked without the resources to defend my record, that it would damage my personal and political reputation. Those opinions just didn’t matter to me as much as the gravity of this moment in our nation’s history. I’ve been clear from the beginning that we have a country to save, and I’ll always fight for America.

I’ve never been one to back down from a challenge. My faith taught me conviction; the Army taught me courage; and my daughters inspire me every day to care deeply about the future of our country.

While our faces are marred politically by dust and sweat and blood, I believe with Teddy Roosevelt that at worst, if we fail, we fail while daring greatly, so that our place will never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. I look forward to future victories, beginning with electing a Senate majority this November that will work with President Trump to make America great again.

Now is the time to stand together as a party. Moments ago, I called to congratulate Bernie Moreno and wish him well. We all share the same mission to retire Sherrod Brown and restore Ohio’s voice and values to the United States Senate. The stakes for this election couldn’t be higher.”
