“There is no legislative map that will ever satisfy the far-left Democrat activists on the redistricting commission and the Ohio Supreme Court,” stated Pullins. “The only answer is to appeal this decision to the U.S. Supreme Court and move Ohio’s primary to July or August.”
“There simply isn’t time to design a brand new map in the narrow timeline that remains,” continued Pullins. “That’s especially the case when Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and his political supporters are yucking it up in Los Angeles at the Super Bowl while the courts’ clock ticks.”
The primary election date can only be moved via action from the Ohio General Assembly. State officials can then ask for a stay of the Ohio Supreme Court’s deadlines pending appeal and the primary move.
