Ohio SoS LaRose: "Election Nights Are Never Final"

I have to give him credit - he really has not supported trump in any way, and neither has DeWine (thank goodness!)

But Ohio's Republican Secretary of State Frank LaRose stressed that "election night results are never final" on the ABC News "Powerhouse Politics" podcast.

"This idea that election night is sort of this grand reality TV show where everybody gets to go to bed on election night knowing who won and who lost is just a flawed construct that's not the way it works," LaRose said during an interview Monday with podcast co-hosts ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl and Political Director Rick Klein.

Trump has repeatedly claimed that the winner of the election must be known on election night, saying during a rally in Iowa Sunday, "We should know the result of the election on November 3rd, the evening of November 3rd. Thatís the way it's been and that's the way it should be."

That that!

2. OH gives 10 days for absentee ballots to arrive if they are postmarked by before the election day.

So if OH is very close, we will have to wait 10 days to find out who won it.

3. right

And I am NOT a LaRose / Husted / DeWine fan (I've hated DeWine since freakin' Iran-Contra), but the early voting days were restored, 4 weeks worth, especially the Sunday dates - that was a big deal. Actually surprised me.

However, he did have something to do with the one-ballot-box-per-county policy. He said he didn't in an MSNBC interview, said it was due to rep. state legislature, but either way, that really sucked. Our (excellent) Sherrod Brown didn't like that, gave him hell. But I can't see - yet - how much damage that did.

4. Before we sing LaRose praises, lets remember he fought tooth and nail against multiple drop boxes

per county.
And as a result we ended up with one drop box per county.

8. oh sh*t

I'm so sorry to hear that. Very glad that got corrected, but what a pain in the ass stress-load that had to be. Thank goodness that was worked out.

And yes, I posted below about the drop-boxes.

9. From anything I have seen he has sent the same message to both campaigns -

Large crowes are not a good idea.
Wear masks.

But - bottom line, he wont' interfere with what he perceives as free speech issues.

The difference is that Bide/Harris paid attention to his suggestions and Trump/Pence did not.

10. I remember that day

I was pissed, and I did blame him for cancelling the debate. But he closed schools not long after that - same week, I think - and NBA shut down that Friday. NOT praising him, but he did do a decent job on COVID. And lately, he was added to the Whitmer / Northam death wish list. Jesus.
