OH Supreme Court ruling throws 2012 elections into chaos
Advertisements [?]
The Ohio Supreme Court's decision to allow Democrats to go forward with a petition drive to stop the Republican congressional redistricting plan has thrown the 2012 congressional elections into chaos.

Candidates for Congress - incumbents and challengers, Republicans and Democrats - will have to sit on their hands for a while to see when they should file and if the districts they planed to file in will even exist.

It is not entirely clear yet, but it would appear now that congressional candidates will file petitions by Dec. 7 for districts that may no longer exist by the planned March 6 primary.

Or they could be forced to run in a statewide primary election for Ohio's 16 U.S. House seats, where the top 16 Republicans face the top 16 finishing Democrats in the Nov. 2012 election.
