Bill To Eliminate Pointless Primaries Clears Ohio Senate

COLUMBUS, Ohio - One part of Ohio's election laws would be changed if an Ohio Senate bill gets House approval and the governor signs it. 

Primary elections where the race is already decided, mostly because only one candidate is running. That's what State Senator Frank LaRose (R-Hudson) says is pointless, and a waste of tax money.

"It happened just in recent history in the state of Ohio in a congressional election when the former Speaker of the U.S. House retired from his seat and there was a special election held in order to replace him," LaRose says. 

LaRose is shepherding the measure through the Statehouse. Senate Bill 10 seeks to eliminate primaries which are already decided, and the ballots are only a formality, required by law.
