[PRESS RELEASE] Emgage PAC Endorses Steve Dettelbach for Attorney General of Ohio

Dayton, Ohio – Emgage PAC, the largest Muslim American Federal PAC, proudly announces its endorsement of Steve Dettelbach, the Democratic nominee for Attorney General of Ohio.

Dettelbach has a proven prosecutorial track record in fighting human trafficking, supporting redistricting reform, combating sexual harassment, and stopping corruption and backroom deals. His contributions to our community for 20 years as a federal prosecutor have put drug dealers, child abusers, and human traffickers behind bars. As Attorney General of Ohio, we know that he will strive to enforce the law to take on political insiders and politicians and to protect Ohioans and their children.

Most importantly, Dettelbach has made extensive contributions to our communities throughout his career, beginning from his early days as a prosecutor in the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division. For example, he worked with the FBI to investigate Ku Klux Klan violence in Vidor, Texas. Later in his career, Dettelbach served as a prosecutor on the Department of Justice’s Northern Ohio Organized Crime and Corruption Strike Force and held politicians in both parties responsible for breaking the law.

Dettelbach’s leadership as a prosecutor and lifelong public service have touched the lives of 6 million Ohioans across 40 counties. He has made tremendous contributions in tackling the opioid epidemic head on from holding pharmaceutical companies accountable to prosecuting doctors and dealers who illegally pushed pills into Ohio communities.

“Emgage proudly endorses Steve Dettelbach for his outstanding accomplishments and public service for all Ohioans and we truly believe that he will fix the broken political system and work with politicians from both sides of the aisle and communities to protect Ohio from threats such as violent crimes and public corruption,” stated Emgage National PAC Director Mohamed Gula.

“I am deeply honored to receive the support and endorsement of Emgage PAC,” stated Dettelbach, adding, “Muslim Americans have a rich history in our country and are a growing, vibrant community in Ohio. I look forward to continuing to advocate for Muslim Americans and all communities in our great state of Ohio as the next Attorney General.”
