Ohio's 16th Congressional District stretches from Lake Erie into farm country and purposely avoids inner-city Cleveland, Akron, and Canton. 

Aaron Godfrey is anything but your typical politician. He is a complete political novice, a die-hard progressive, and a firm believer in the ability of the average American to step up and take back this country. 

He is a physicist by trade, but has jumped head first into trying to flip a gerrymandered district that was specifically built for Jim Renacci, the man that is leaving his seat to run against Sherrod Brown for senator this fall. 

He has to compete in a crowded Democratic primary in the OH16 with no clear front-runner and then, if he wins, go up against some of the biggest Republican donors in Ohio, such as the NFL, the Trump administration, steel factory owners and Smucker's Jelly.

Facing enormous odds, with no help to start, no name recognition, and no money, Aaron is attempting to do the impossible and prove that anyone can and should run.
