Republicans Put Their Disdain for Ohioans on Display Once Again
May 5, 2022
Columbus, OH — Today, the Ohio Democratic Party issued the following statement after Ohio Republicans once again passed GOP-gerrymandered statehouse maps, ignoring repeated rulings from the Ohio Supreme Court and Ohio voters who have overwhelmingly called for fair maps and redistricting reforms.
“Ohio Republicans’ latest rubber stamp of GOP-gerrymandered maps once again displays the disdain these politicians have for working Ohioans. From refusing to pass fair maps to sticking working families with a likely $25 million bill, it’s clear that Republicans don’t care about anyone but themselves and their own political interests,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chair Elizabeth Walters.
The repeated failure of Republicans to do their jobs and pass fair maps will likely cost Ohioans more than $25 million – the cost of holding two primary elections – and sow chaos, confusion and anger for Ohioans who believe voters should choose their politicians, not the other way around.
