TRUMP WATCH

Ahead of Donald Trump’s visit to the Buckeye State this week, the Ohio Democratic Party held a virtual roundtable with Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, Cleveland City Councilman Blaine Griffin and United Steelworkers Local 979 President Dan Boone to highlight the president’s failed policies and broken promises to working Ohioans.

“He’s coming for the press to cover him for a photo op … he’s going to deal with his wealthy friends that he rewarded so highly in the tax bill that has harmed the middle class in our country,” said Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur. “Now, here’s a few things that he’s not doing. He’s not putting America first, and he’s certainly not helping Ohio…. This is a serious time for Ohio. I support Joe Biden so strongly because he has the experience and the good measure to help lead our country forward domestically and internationally.”

“The president promised to do this big infrastructure package,” said United Steelworkers Local 979 President Dan Boone. “It would revitalize the steel industry, and we’re gonna make it in America, and we’re still waiting for that to happen.”

OHIO DEMS IN THE HEADLINES

Ohio Dems Fighting to Make Voting Safer and Easier

Last week, the Ohio Democratic Party filed a lawsuit to allow Ohio voters to request an absentee ballot electronically, and now the party is encouraging Secretary of State Frank LaRose to allow additional secure dropboxes to be placed across the state. Currently there is only one dropbox per county.

Both of these actions would make voting by mail drastically easier — which is of the utmost importance during a pandemic. Requesting an absentee ballot online would stop voters from having to mail in an application, wait for a ballot to be returned and then mail in their ballot. Dropboxes would also reduce this waiting period allowing folks to simply drop off their ballot.

LaRose is opposing the lawsuit to allow applications to be completed online, and he’s wasting time by asking Attorney General Dave Yost for an unnecessary legal opinion.
