Ohio House of Representatives[edit]

When Representative Steve Reinhard was unable to run for another term due to term limits, McClain, along with Lois Fisher, sought the Republican nomination. McClain won the primary election with 60.72% of the votes.[1] He won the general election with 53.63% of the vote.[2] On January 5, 2009, he was sworn into his first term.

McClain was elected to a second term in 2010 unopposed. He is a member of the Finance and Appropriations Committee, the Transportation, Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee and the Ways and Means Committee. He is also a member of the Joint Council on Developmental Disabilities, and the Ohio Commission on Fatherhood.

With Senator Karen Gillmor resigning from her seat, McClain had been named as a possible successor.[3][4] However, the appointment went to David Burke.
