OH-01: Steve Chabot (R)
Rep. Steve Chabot has served Ohio’s First Congressional District for 24 years. A lifelong Cincinnatian, Chabot previously served as a Cincinnati City Councilman and Hamilton County Commissioner for five years each prior to being elected to Congress in 1994.
Since becoming a member of congress, Chabot has served on the Committee on the Judiciary, the Committee on Small Business and the Committee on Foreign Affairs.
Chabot currently serves as the ranking member of the House Committee on Small Business. He has also served as: chairman of the House Committee on Small Business from 2015-2018; chairman of the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution from 2001-2006; ranking member on the Small Business Committee from 2007-2008; chairman of the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia from 2011-2012; and chairman of the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific from 2013-2014.
Chabot continues to fight wasteful government spending in Congress, where he is an advocate for fiscal responsibility. He has consistently voted to eliminate wasteful spending and reduce the excessive tax burden on hard-working Americans.
Nonpartisan taxpayer advocacy groups such as Citizens Against Government Waste, the Concord Coalition and the National Taxpayers Union have rated Chabot as one of the most taxpayer friendly members of Congress.
While in Congress, Chabot has also helped lead efforts to reduce the regulatory burden on America’s small businesses, and to combat the opioid epidemic. He is an outspoken defender of the rights of the unborn, most importantly having authored the ban on the practice of partial-birth abortions.
In January 1999, Rep. Chabot served as one of 13 house managers during the Senate impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton, where he received praise for his even-handed and thoughtful approach to the trial.
Chabot graduated from LaSalle High School in 1971, and earned his undergraduate degree from the College of William and Mary four years later. After college, he returned to Cincinnati to teach at St. Joseph’s School in the West End, while studying at Northern Kentucky University’s Salmon P. Chase College of Law in the evening.
Steve and his wife, Donna, live in the Cincinnati neighborhood of Westwood. They have two children, Erica and Randy, and are the proud grandparents of Reed and Keira Noelle.
