Scott Pullins Officially Announces Second Campaign for State Representative

Mount Vernon, OH – Longtime conservative Republican leader Scott Pullins of Knox County has officially announced his second campaign for State Representative.  He is running for the 98th Ohio House District which includes all of Coshocton and Holmes Counties, and most of Knox County.  He ran against incumbent Darrell Kick in the August 2022 primary and lost by just 684 votes.

“State Representative is not an entry level job or for untested political newcomers,” said Pullins. “We’ve already seen too much turmoil in the Ohio House from infighting and immature members.  It’s time to start electing highly experienced and tested representatives again.”

“Over the last five years the Ohio House has had five different Speakers,” said Pullins.  “In Knox County we have had four different legislators represent all or parts of the county over the past two years.  In Coshocton County, they have had three different legislators in the last two years. It’s made it more difficult to pass our conservative agenda with the constant turnover and infighting.”

“I am not a Democrat wolf in Republican clothing,” said Pullins.  “I voted in my first Republican primary at age 18 and have voted Republican ever since then.  I was first elected as an officer of the Ohio University College Republican Club in my first year as an undergraduate and then joined the Athens County Republican Central and Executive Committees shortly after.  I served on the Knox County Republican Central and Executive Committees from 1994 until 2008 and again from 2020 on.”

Scott Pullins is an Ohio attorney, charter school board member, political consultant, and writer. He provides services to small businesses, individuals, financial entities, and political organizations. He is well known at the statehouse and has lobbied for taxpayer groups, small businesses, an alternative medical association, an education nonprofit and on wildlife issues.  His experience and connections will be crucial in helping to pass key legislation. 

Pullins is a member of the Republican National Lawyers Association.  He attended Ohio University and earned his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from The Ohio State University in 1997. He earned his Juris Doctorate from Capital University Law School in 2003.
