Skindell No Match for Justice O'Donnell

COLUMBUS - Today, Ohio Republican Party Chairman Bob Bennett released the following statement on Senator Michael Skindell's expected run against Republican Ohio Supreme Court Justice Terrence O'Donnell this November:

"Trial lawyer Mike Skindell's left wing ideology makes him unfit for the state's highest court. After trying for seven months, the Democrats unearthed a candidate with no judicial experience whatsoever, who stands in marked contrast to Justice O'Donnell's thirty-year judicial career of distinction and outstanding record on the bench."

"Justice O'Donnell is a quality jurist, who over the years has kept his pledge of being fair and impartial. This same can't be reasonably expected from his opponent, whose legislative career has been spent limiting gun rights, pushing pro-government health mandates, and casting votes that hurt Ohio businesses that create jobs.

"Skindell's activism is bad for the Court, and bad for Ohio."
