CINCINNATI, OH | APRIL 2, 2024 — Orlando Sonza joined Mike Allen on 700 WLW over the weekend to discuss current events and his campaign's priorities. 


When discussing the firing of Ronna McDaniel from NBC, Orlando said: "The mainstream media wants only one side of the story, and that's their extreme liberal side. That's the reason why many voters, many Americans, don't trust the media; and they shouldn't."


In reaction to President Biden fundraising instead of attending the wake of NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller, Orlando commented: "It goes to show where his priorities are and it is disgraceful." Sonza went on to say that "it just goes to show a weakness in leadership that we've seen for the last three plus years."


Continuing his support for law enforcement and crime prevention, Orlando said: "When you've got leadership that instead can step up, that recognizes that this [crime] is an issue and actually does something about it, that's when we can have a safer community and a safer city."


Finally, Orlando laid out the central priorities of his campaign for OH-01: "Look, there are four key issues that we are focused on in November. It is public safety, reducing crime, just like I said. We want to also better our education system here in the First District. We want to make sure we fix our economy, and we want to also make sure that America becomes that beacon on the hill again when it comes to the international stage. To be strong and support our military. That is what's at stake here."


Orlando Sonza is a proud Ohioan. A second-generation Filipino American, Orlando graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point. Orlando served on active duty as an Infantry Officer and Finance Officer with the 3rd Infantry Division at Fort Stewart, Georgia. After leaving active duty, Orlando obtained his master’s degree in taxation from the University of Cincinnati and his law degree from Georgetown Law. He is currently a prosecutor in the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s office. He and his wife Jessica live in Springfield Township with their four children..
