GOP Official Clinches Super Majority In Ohio House
The Republican-controlled Ohio House has voted 58-to-32 to uphold a GOP candidate's victory last year in a disputed race for state representative.
Democrat Josh O'Farrell lost his bid to unseat Republican Rep. Al Landis by eight votes in November. The district covers Tuscarawas and part of Holmes counties. The race's outcome determined whether Republicans have a 60-vote majority in the House. That majority allows Republicans to place a constitutional amendment on the ballot or override a governor's veto without a Democratic vote. Democrats have argued there were multiple election irregularities involving provisional and absentee ballots that could have changed the race's outcome.
