Nathan Manning announces bid for Ohio Senate


NORTH RIDGEVILLE — State Rep. Nathan Manning announced Thursday his run for Ohio’s 13th State Senate district seat, which includes Huron and Lorain counties.

If he wins, he would replace his mother, state Sen. Gayle Manning.

“I’ve been honored to be a voice for our communities in the state legislature, and I’d like to continue working for better jobs, stronger schools and safer neighborhoods,” said Manning. “Those are critical priorities, but I also believe more needs to be done to combat the drug epidemic facing our families. That fight demands our full attention, and I look forward to building on the historic work we’ve already done to beat back this crisis.”

Manning is serving his second term on the state House of Representatives where he is chairman of the Criminal Justice committee and serves as policy chair for the majority caucus.

Manning is a lifelong resident of Lorain County and a graduate of North Ridgeville High School. He has a bachelor’s degree from Denison University and a J.D. from Capital University Law School. He previously served as a prosecutor for North Ridgeville and owns the Manning and Manning law firm in North Ridgeville.

Manning is involved with the North Ridgeville Chamber of Commerce, Lorain County Bar Association and the Lorain County Historical Society. He lives in North Ridgeville with his wife, Jennifer, a teacher at Lakewood High School.
