What SB 5 and HB 194 mean for Obama's Ohio campaign
The kickoff to the 2012 shenanigans begins with a blood and guts, in-the-trenches battle in Ohio that will be a bellwether for Obamas success in his re-election bid next year. /

Ohio is a funny place when it comes to electoral politics, especially on the presidential level. It is almost impossible to win the White House without winning Ohio, but at the same time the state flips governors from Democratic to Republican and swings for Republican or Democratic presidents faster than you can say Ken Blackwell cheated. /

Avid news watchers have probably already heard about SB5 in Ohio, which was essentially the same anti-union bill that is causing Wisconsin to go into conniptions since Scott Walker was elected. But there is a lesser-known but equally important bill that passed, HB 194, that could radically alter next years elections. The bill, if fully implemented, would severely hinder voting opportunities for citizens in the state, targeting the poor and less mobile, essentially key Obama voters.
