Ohio House of Representatives[edit]

When Representative Seth Morgan decided to seek the office of Ohio Auditor, Henne entered a crowded primary to replace him. In the Republican primary, he faced Butler Township Trustee Joe Ellis. Ellis was originally the party favorite, but due to a fight which broke out among Ellis at a local bar, the party support turned to Henne.[1] In the end, Henne defeated Ellis handily, by almost 4,300 votes.[2] In the general election, Democrats fielded well-known school board member Carl Fisher in an effort to take a pick-up from Republicans.[3] In the end, Henne defeated Fisher easily, by about 12,000 votes.[4]

Henne was sworn into office for his first term on January 3, 2011.[5] Currently, Henne is on the committees of Economic and Small Business Development, Education, Financial Institutions, Housing, and Urban Development, and Insurance.

In 2012, Henne won reelection with 54.46% of the vote over Democrat Carl Fisher.
