TIDE OF “NO ON ISSUE 2” ENDORSEMENTS ROLLS IN
Findlay Courier, WCPO-TV, Crain’s Cleveland Business join the growing chorus
Columbus Dispatch scorches Issue 2 again
Columbus, OH – The tide of Ohio news outlets urging a “no” vote on Issue 2 continued to grow today as The Findlay Courier and WCPO-TV (ABC, Cincinnati) urged Ohio voters to reject the November ballot initiative, while The Columbus Dispatch published its third hard-hitting editorial in opposition. Crain’s Cleveland Business urged a “no” vote earlier this week.
With fewer than three weeks to go before Election Day, 12 Ohio news organizations have now announced their opposition to Issue 2. No daily news newspapers have endorsed a “yes” vote.
Said Campaign Communications Director Dale Butland:
“News organizations across Ohio are independently coming to the same conclusion: Issue 2 is bad public policy that won’t work and would only make the problem of affordable prescription drugs even worse for our state and its people.”
