Ohio Democratic Party Statement on the Unconstitutional, Purely Partisan Maps Passed by Republican Politicians

Columbus, OH — Ohio Democratic Party Chair Elizabeth Walters released the following statement after Republicans flouted the Constitution, spat in the face of Ohio voters and once again put their own political interests over the needs of our state by passing purely partisan 4-year maps that statehouse Republicans used to choose their voters rather than the other way around.

“These Republican maps are an embarrassingly transparent partisan ploy to once again serve the needs of GOP politicians and special interests at the expense of the needs of Ohio voters. These maps will take our state even further backward in the fight for quality education, equal voting rights and an economy that rewards workers. It’s unacceptable that GOP politicians once again put their party above the will of the voters and the needs of working families in Ohio,” said Chair Walters.
