Ohio Democratic Party: Time for Mike DeWine to Put His Money Where His Mouth Is & Veto GOP Gerrymandered Map
November 18, 2021
Columbus, OH — Today, the Ohio Democratic Party issued the following statement calling on Mike DeWine to veto the GOP gerrymandered map that ignores the will of Ohio voters and puts the political interests of Republican politicians over the needs of working families in Ohio.
“This map is a disgrace and a betrayal of Ohio voters who overwhelmingly voted twice for fair districts and fair representation. From Toledo to Youngstown, Cincinnati to Athens and all across Ohio, this map makes Ohio even more gerrymandered and even less representative of Ohioans. It’s clear GOP politicians in Ohio want to prevent Ohioans from holding them accountable at the ballot box for the many ways they’ve betrayed Ohioans. Mike DeWine once said earlier versions of these maps aren’t ‘going to fly,’ and it’s time for him to use his veto pen to put his money where his mouth is,” said Ohio Democratic Party spokesperson Matt Keyes.
