Chairman Bennett on Ohio's Falling Unemployment Rate


COLUMBUS - Ohio Republican Party Chairman Bob Bennett said that Ohio's falling unemployment rate is a direct result of the smart and innovative policies of Governor John Kasich, Republicans in the legislature, and other Republicans in statewide offices.

"Unemployment is falling in Ohio because more Ohioans are creating jobs. Ohio is finally open for ideas thanks to our Republican leaders who are making wise decisions and enacting bright new policies, but we still have a lot of work to do to keep Ohio's momentum moving forward."

Ohio's unemployment rate continued to fall today to 6.7 percent and still remains well below the national unemployment rate of 7.8 percent. This is Ohio's lowest unemployment rate in over four years.
