This is exactly what happens when your congressional districts have been rigged to elect republicans and extremists grab the primaries. This is why we will soon start collecting signatures to prevent this gerrymandering which allows and encourages pandering to extreme views and big money donors rather than accountability tot he people. Our imperfect attempt to do this (Issue 2) failed but we will improve and move a new bill to get rid of the gerrymandering onto the ballot. We will not quit until citizens of Ohio are fairly represented.
We made mistakes for a number of reasons, letting this issue (Issue 2} fail. While there was lot of PAC money against us, we could have beaten it and won. We will do better. Anyone who wants to help protect the rights of Ohio citizens and prevent gerrymandering determining who has the majority of the members of the House of Representatives contact VotersFirst in Ohio to help.
I guess this is a national issue and must be examined everywhere and then defeated if we really want to do what the framers of our constitution wanted.
