#OHSEN Slugfest – State Issue 1 Edition: Entire #OHSEN Field Supports Dangerous Abortion Bans
November 3, 2023
And The Infighting Escalates…
Columbus, OH – With four days left until Ohioans decide on State Issue 1, the entire primary field for Ohio’s Senate seat is making it clear they support dangerous abortion bans and won’t fight for Ohioans. And with less than 5 months until this slugfest comes to a close, the infighting is only escalating with more attacks, lies about State Issue 1, and even calls for resignations this week.
#OHSEN FIELD SUPPORTS DANGEROUS ABORTION BANS
As Ohioans vote to protect their reproductive rights, Frank LaRose, Bernie Moreno, and Matt Dolan have made it clear they support a national abortion ban. And make no mistake, by opposing the November amendment, the #OHSEN primary field supports upholding the current restrictive law in Ohio – which bans abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest. Here’s what you need to know:
Frank LaRose supports a national abortion ban, opposes exceptions for rape or incest, and celebrated the overturning of Roe v. Wade. LaRose also said he supports Sen. Tommy Tuberville’s blockade of top military confirmations – saying Tuberville’s position is “the same position I would support in the Senate.”
FRANK LAROSE PURPOSEFULLY SILENCING AND MISLEADING OHIOANS
It’s a day that ends in Y, which means Frank LaRose is once again trying to silence and mislead Ohioans. What you need to know about how LaRose and the No side has run a misinformation campaign every step of the way.
- LaRose made himself the face of a $18 million August special election designed to silence Ohioans and benefit special interests and admitted it was “100%” about abortion.
- After LaRose’s amendment in August flopped, LaRose “twist[ed]” the abortion ballot language to intentionally mislead Ohioans. A recent report shows the “inaccurate and inflammatory” language could have a “big effect” on support for Issue 1.
- LaRose “quietly purged” nearly 27,000 of voters from Ohio’s voting system… leaving purged voters little-to-no time to re-register and cast their ballots by 11/7.
Ohioans to Frank LaRose…
BERNIE SAID WHAT???
NBC yesterday published a must-read report on Bernie Moreno doubling down in support of dangerous abortion bans without exceptions for rape while spreading misinformation about State Issue 1.
Bernie Moreno (falsely) on Issue 1: “It’s about having that girl be able to be raped and having a rapist force her to have an abortion — all without your consent — as a minor.”
Experts note Moreno’s claims are categorically false while Moreno makes it clear how out-of-step he is.
THE INFIGHTING JUST GETS WORSE IN THIS SLUGFEST
LaRose, who employees note is “laser-focused” on his Senate campaign and advancing his political ambitions, has been repeatedly accused of dropping the ball on his official Secretary of State duties and wasting taxpayer dollars to support his political ambitions.
And Bernie Moreno is now joining Ohioans by calling out LaRose for his incompetence.
This week, Moreno filed campaign paperwork with LaRose’s office, but noted he doesn’t trust LaRose’s ability to remain impartial and requested LaRose to recuse himself from the verification process.
Can you blame him?
LaRose moved his official office to his campaign HQ – costing taxpayers $600,000, promoted his campaign in his official newsletter, and has been accused of making the impartial position “increasingly partisan” by former staffers.
Moreno’s campaign also cited LaRose threatening Trump and took it one step further by calling on LaRose to resign…
A source close to the LaRose campaign: “If you are the president and you are fighting four legal battles, most of them centered around the validity of the election − and you’re most likely going to be on the general election ballot in a state you cannot win the White House without − are you going to do anything to antagonize the guy counting the votes?“
It’s clear this slugfest is only getting messier…

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
Bernie Moreno on Frank LaRose’s costly office move: “When you don’t know how to negotiate and you’re spending $600,000 to move your office to save 11 grand a year, you’re not somebody who’s serious about cutting spending.”
