The Republican running for Ohio Secretary of State says the passion of both parties over voting issues may be doing damage to American’s confidence in their democracy. Frank Larose, the state senator who hopes to succeed Secretary of State Jon Husted, told the Akron Press Club today any move that disenfranchises any voters or allows any voter fraud is too much.

“But nobody should overstate the existence of either fraud or suppression because I think what it does is underminds the confidence that voters have.”

The opponents of Issue 2, the Drug Price Relief Act, recently outspent backers of that proposal by a four-to-one margin. And most of the money in the opposition’s campaign war chest couldn’t be directly traced because it was in an LLC rather than a traditional political action committee.

A Republican candidate for Secretary of State has dropped out of the primary fight, citing party unity as her reason. 

Representative Dorothy Pelanda of Marysville was going head-to-head with Sen. Frank LaRose of Hudson in perhaps the biggest primary fight aside from the gubernatorial race. Pelanda wrote that the Ohio Republican Party is a family that must stay strong and that’s why she was ending her candidacy.
