DNC Chair Jamie Harrison is
confident that Democrats will handle the
issue and "land this plane on our own.".
Joe Biden will be on the ballot in Ohio and
all 50 states, and Ohio Republicans agree.
But when the time has come for action,
they have failed to act every time, so
Democrats will land this plane on our own, Jamie Harrison, DNC chair, via statement.
Through a virtual roll call, we will ensure that
Republicans can't chip away at our democracy
through incompetence or partisan tricks and
that Ohioans can exercise their right to vote
for the presidential candidate of their choice, Jamie Harrison, DNC chair, via statement.
Mike DeWine, Republican governor
of Ohio, chimed in as well.
While I understand the Democratic National
Committee has just today proposed a
work-around to help get President Biden
on the Ohio ballot, it is prudent legislation
be passed to get this done. , Mike DeWine, Ohio governor, via statement.
As I previously said, we do not want to leave
something so basic as having the sitting
President of the United States on the ballot
to others when this can-and should-be done
legislatively. It's the right thing to do. , Mike DeWine, Ohio governor, via statement.
For these reasons, it is important that
a bill or multiple bills that accomplish
these common-sense measures come
to my desk right away this week.
