Early voting is going strong in Ohio. The exotic animal tragedy in Zanesville drags on, even after Gov. John Kasich signed an executive order late last week that put into place temporary measures regarding private ownership of such animals while tougher laws are drafted. The Ohio Supreme Court says the Ohio Democratic Party can't have an extra month to gather signatures to take the Republican-drawn Congressional map to the ballot next year. A new poll shows as the election comes closer, the gap between Issue 2 voters has widened, but a further breakdown shows some support for items in Senate Bill 5.
Polls are showing that there aren't many people who remain undecided this election year, but that's not stopping the heads of Ohio's two main political parties from making their cases on the three statewide issues. But the chairmen of Ohio's two main political parties - Chris Redfern of the Ohio Democratic Party and Kevin DeWine of the Ohio Republican Party - are also talking about the battle over the Congressional district map and next year's "double primaries".
