Ohio Democratic Party Responds to LaRose’s Power Grab to Rip Away Ohioans’ Right to Pass Citizen-Led Ballot Initiatives, Hold Politicians Accountable
November 17, 2022
Columbus, OH — Today, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Elizabeth Walters released the following statement in response to Frank LaRose’s latest power grab: making it harder for Ohioans to put citizen-led initiatives on the ballot and pass their priorities into law.
“Frank LaRose has once again put politics over principle, and is selling out to extreme Republicans who don’t want to be held accountable by Ohio voters. LaRose’s proposal is just the latest example of appeasing Republican extremists in pursuit of his own political ambitions. LaRose is willing to sell out Democracy for a shot at the Republican Senate primary in two years. Ohio Democrats are going to fight like hell to make sure this proposal never passes in Ohio and LaRose never holds higher office.”
