Statement from Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted

COLUMBUS – Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted released a statement in response to today’s lawsuit filed by the ACLU of Ohio, the League of Women Voters of Ohio, and the Ohio A. Philip Randolph Institute regarding the state’s current congressional district maps.
 
“If the way the congressional lines were drawn was such an issue for the ACLU, A. Philip Randolph Institute and League of Women Voters, why did they wait six years to file a lawsuit challenging the maps? These groups should respect the will of Ohio’s voters who overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment earlier this month that established a new, bipartisan process for drawing congressional districts starting in 2021.”
