Davidson is the representative for Ohio’s 8th congressional district (view map) and is a Republican. He has served since Jun 9, 2016. Davidson is next up for reelection in 2024 and serves until Jan 3, 2025. He is 53 years old.
Our work to hold Congress accountable only matters if elections are decided by counting votes. President Trump, his senior government advisors, and Republican legislators collaborated to have the 2020 presidential election decided instead by incumbent politicians running in the very same election. Their attempts to suppress entire state-certified vote counts without adjudication in the courts and using a disinformation campaign of lies and conspiracy theories was a months-long, multifarious attempted coup.
Davidson was among the Republican legislators who participated in the attempted coup. Davidson was a part of a coordinated campaign with the Trump Administration to pursue discredited allegations. On January 6, 2021 in the hours after the violent insurrection at the Capitol, Davidson voted to reject the state-certified election results of Arizona and/or Pennsylvania (states narrowly won by Democrats), which could have changed the outcome of the election. These legislators pumped the lies and preposterous legal arguments about the election that motivated the January 6, 2021 violent insurrection at the Capitol. The January 6, 2021 violent insurrection at the Capitol, led on the front lines by militant white supremacy groups, attempted to prevent President-elect Joe Biden from taking office by disrupting Congress’s count of electors.
