ProgressOhio's Self-Promotional Criticisms Represent Height of Hypocrisy

Columbus - Ohio Republican Party Chairman Kevin DeWine released the following statement today in response to ProgressOhio's misleading press conference:

"Leave it to the liberal extremists at ProgressOhio to question the necessity and importance of job creation in Ohio," Chairman DeWine said.

"Where were their calls for transparency when labor unions funneled $10.6 million toward Ted Strickland while he issued executive orders mandating union membership expansion? Instead of holding misleading press conferences which only serve to vilify job creators, ProgressOhio should put their money where their mouth is. They should immediately open their books and disclose all of the money they have received from organizations which oppose the reasonable reforms of State Issue 2."
