Republican Politicians Want to Choose Their Voters
September 20, 2023
Columbus, OH – Today, the Ohio Democratic Party released the following statement on the GOP-Gerrymandered maps presented by Republican politicians on Ohio’s redistricting commission.
“Mere weeks ago, Republican politicians in Ohio claimed their only focus was protecting Ohio’s Constitution. Today, those same politicians showed how hollow those words always were by tossing our Constitution aside and presenting illegal maps that ignore the law and the will of Ohioans. While Ohio Democrats have produced constitutional maps that would ensure fair representation for voters, Ohio Republicans want to pick and choose their voters to maintain their grip on power,” said Matt Keyes, spokesperson for the Ohio Democratic Party.
Earlier this week, Ohio Democratic legislators released maps that meet Ohio’s constitutional requirements and that ensure fair representation for Ohio voters.
