Will Larry Householder's $60 million GOP scandal hand Ohio to Biden? Democrat s hope so. Experts say

Will Larry Householder's $60 million GOP scandal hand Ohio to Biden? Dems hope so. Experts say not so fast


Polls already indicated Donald Trump has lost support in Ohio, a key state he won by eight percentage points in 2016.

Democrats hope the arrest of Republican Speaker of the House Larry Householder and top Republican operatives might put the state, and therefore the White House, out of reach for the president.

The $60 million racketeering and bribery investigation that resulted in the arrest of Householder and four others is one of the largest money laundering cases in state history.

Democrats have wasted no time trying to capitalize on the scandal, asking Ohioans to send a message by voting for their ticket, from Joe Biden on down to local offices.

1. Does this scandal have a chance to flip 1 or both houses

of the Ohio state legislature?

4. That's probably the more important question.

My guess is yes, but we will see.

7. I think Ohio state lege districts are pretty

gerrymandered like they are here in PA, but in 2018, PA Dems net gained 11 seats in the state house and 6 in the state senate, which wiped out a GOP super majority. Rs still control both houses, but it's a lot closer that it was.

3. I certainly hope so!

I love how Mike DeWine is still for that billion dollar pay out to First Energy, coal companies and aging nuclear plants.

That bill set Ohio back by decades on clean energy because it changed the laws, reverted back!

But good old Honest Abe DeWine had no idea all the corruption was going on. I had to wonder how in the world Mike won against Richard Cordray who is head and shoulders above Mike? Now I know!

Householder dirty money permeated the whole election. The Ohio Republican Party is corrupt down to their toenails.

My candidate , Dan Foley was ahead until they ran a lying ad accusing him of being drunk. Not true. Smith is not running for some reason.

5. Biden signs

I know that yard signs isnít the most scientific way to determine a candidates support. But I am seeing way more Biden signs than trump signs. This in a swing Ohio country the in 2016 went for trump by almost 15 points. This was before the news of republican corruption

6. I am a strong Biden supporter but in my former town...a couple of dogs were poisoned

and the dogs had been threatened because of Hillary signs...so I am afraid to put out a sign...but let me tell you nothing will stop me from voting for Biden. In fact, hubs and I will early vote or vote in person so as not to give Trump his 'mail in ballots are corrupt', bullshit talking points. We will mask up and march into the precinct and do our constitutional duty and remove Donald Trump Fascist murderer that he is.
