Ohio House sessions for this week have, once again, been cancelled due to controversy over who will be the next speaker. As Statehouse correspondent Jo Ingles reports, the fight that’s been brewing among majority Republicans is now affecting the business of the Legislature -- and is quickly becoming a campaign issue.

Accusations are flying at the State Capitol as the Ohio House continues in chaos without a speaker. The lawmaker considered to be the frontrunner says his rivals, such as the payday-lending industry, are delaying a vote. But as Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow reports, a top lending association is mounting its own, major accusation.

The chaos within the Ohio House Republican caucus continues to build.

As more time passes without a vote for a new House speaker, leaders and lobbyists are making their issues more public.
