Meet Kevin Bacon
Kevin Bacon has long stood as a fighter for Ohioans and conservative values. As a state representative and state senator he sought to protect the unborn and fought any effort to infringe upon our Second Amendment gun-rights. He also worked diligently to make Ohio a place where businesses can thrive, create good-paying jobs and encourage economic investment.
Kevin Bacon will take these principles to Washington to fight for Ohioans and defend our rights against the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
He’ll use experiences gained in Columbus, like his tenure as the Chairman of the Senate Commerce and Labor Committee, to bring needed leadership and fiscal restraint to Washington.
In addition to his public service, Kevin practices law with a Columbus law firm where he helps families and small business owners solve problems. He understands how the law works, and how government needs to get out of the way to help businesses grow.
Bacon previously served as a Blendon Township Trustee, as an enforcement attorney for the Ohio Department of Commerce, and a prosecutor for the Lancaster City Attorney’s office.
Bacon received his bachelor’s degree in political science from Miami University and his law degree from Capital Law School, where he served as student body president. He and his family make Franklin County their home.
