We all remember how much John Kasich supported Senate Bill 5 back in 2011, even sending his chief of staff, Beth Hansen, to lead the campaign to keep SB5 as state law as it became Issue 2 on the state ballot.  Tuesday is the day that Ohio voters get to send Kasich the message that “We Remember”.

Kasich is an easy target, but we don’t want to forget those other legislators who supported Senate Bill 5 back in 2011.  While some have moved on to other jobs, there are 28 other SB5 supporters who are in a contested race in the Ohio Senate or Ohio House.  Here are those individuals who supported SB5 (all Republicans, of course), their SB5 voting record, and their opponent.  If you need to find your voting district, you can use this voter lookup tool.

    You forgot Jack Cera. His opponent is Ronny Ferguson, and believe me this kid is inexperienced and will be led by the nose by the GOP leadership. He is and will be a rubber stamp.
