Campaign Summary

Youseff is a history teacher and the son of a Palestinian refugee. If his race for Congress is successful, he will MAKE HISTORY as the first Palestinian-American to ever represent Ohio in Congress! Career politicians have pit Ohioans against each other for decades. They serve the elites and see it as nothing more than a swing state. Youseff Baddar wants to put people first and help Ohio reclaim its independence!
