Betty Sutton (D)

Grade A

Ms. Sutton completed a questionnaire from the Columbus Dispatch released in December of 2017 in which she indicated that she (1) supports same-sex marriage, (2) supports the inclusion of sexual orientation and gender identity or expression in Ohio’s nondiscrimination laws, and (3) thinks that transgender and gender fluid students should be allowed to use the restroom that matches their gender identity. During her three terms as a member of the United States House of Representatives, she received scores of 95% (110th Congress), 97% (111th Congress), and 100% (112th Congress) on the Human Rights Campaign’s biannual scorecard. She is endorsed by the Human Rights Campaign.
