Conrath Can Run

The Ohio Supreme Court orders a Democratic state legislative candidate to be listed on November ballots, after a tie had been broken against her by the state’s Republican elections chief. In its 4-3 ruling, the high court found Republican Secretary Frank LaRose and the two GOP members of the Athens County Board of Elections who voted against placing Tanya Conrath on the Nov. 8 ballot acted in clear disregard of applicable law. Conrath is challenging incumbent Republican Rep. Jay Edwards for eastern Ohio’s 94th House District. Her case hinged on a snag caused by the state’s protracted political map-making flap, in which LaRose, as a member of the Ohio Redistricting Commission, was a key player.
