We Are Ohio Has Signatures Galore
The anti-SB 5 group We Are Ohio announced that they’ve collected over three times the number of petition signatures that they need to make the ballot in November. They need 231,149, they’ve got 714,137.
Of course, those signatures will need to be validated and some will undoubtedly be tossed. Still, a highly conservative strategy is setting a goal of twice the needed signatures.
Even Shannon Jones expects it to make the ballot. Here’s her statement for a few laughs.
"Our focus right now is on passing a balanced budget and returning Ohio to fiscal stability so we can create jobs again. We expect the referendum to be on the November ballot, and, if it is, I'm confident there will be a broad, grassroots campaign in support of the reasonable reforms we're asking of our public employees. We can get the cost of government under control and return fairness and flexibility to middle class taxpayers, or we can continue the same failed policies that have taken Ohio in the wrong direction for far too long. That's the choice Ohioans will be asked to make."
So why do so many Ohio voters have buyers remorse?
