Gets 50,000+ Out to Vote Nov. 8, Voters Reject Gov. Kasich Extremist Attack on Working Families

Burlington, VT Democracy for America staff and their 40,000 members in Ohio celebrated last night, when voters turned out to the polls and rejected Gov. Kasich’s deeply unpopular anti-labor law, Senate Bill 5. DFA has been actively pushing the ‘No on 2’ campaign in Ohio for the past five weeks--talking to voters at more than 50,000 homes about Gov. Kasich’s attack on hard-working Ohioans.
 “The victory in Ohio should send a clear message to extremist politicians like Gov. Kasich: policies that protect the wealthiest 1% at the expense of the 99% of hard-working Americans are hugely unpopular and will be rejected at the polls,” said Jim Dean, Chair of DFA.  
“DFA and our 40,000 members in Ohio worked hard to get out the vote and defeat the job killing Issue 2 and we will continue to fight back against extremist right wing attacks on hard-working Americans.”
The results in Ohio are clear. ‘No on 2’ won by a clear margin with a healthy voter turnout.

More than one million Ohio voters signed a petition to bring Issue 2 to the ballot because the bill passed by the state legislature, SB 5, unfairly limited the bargaining rights of public workers in the state.
