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.

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.

Ohio Chamber of Commerce[edit]

Term limited in 2016, McClain resigned early to work for the Ohio Chamber of Commerce.[5]
