Special Election: Reaction to Tuesday’s No Vote

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Reaction to the “no” vote on State Issue 1 in the Special August Election:

The Ohio Democratic Party in a release called Secretary of State Frank LaRose “Ohio’s biggest loser”, because of his association with the issue.

U.S. Senator from Ohio Sherrod Brown says Ohio voters saw the amendment for what it was, a “power grab by powerful people”.

Stark and Summit County member of Congress Emilia Sykes says Ohioans sent a clear message that they won’t allow “Republicans to rig our democracy”.

Secretary of State Frank LaRose claims “radical activists” are set to introduce amendments to the state’s Constitution, with, he says, a “giant for sale sign” hanging on the Constitution.

Ohio Right to Life President Mike Gonadakis says the millions that poured into Ohio to defeat the issue are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to out-of-state special interests impacting state and even the U.S. Constitution.
