An Ohio group has resubmitted paperwork to state officials in its effort to push a ballot initiative that would keep workers who are covered by labor contracts from having to join a union or pay union dues.
The group's lawyer, Maurice Thompson, says Ohioans for Workplace Freedom refiled a new summary of its right-to-work amendment on Monday.
Attorney General Mike DeWine has to clear the summary from the coalition of tea party groups and others before they can start collecting the roughly 386,000 valid signatures needed to get it on the ballot this year.
Bill Cohen from Ohio Public Radio joins Emily McCord for PoliticsOhio to discuss the Quinnipiac poll results from this week. Cohen reports that Ohioans fall along party lines regarding support for the so-called "heartbeat bill". Another poll finds that Ohioans overwhelmingly support natural oil and gas drilling for economic reasons over the environment, yet they do want a moratorium on fracking. Cohen addresses the possible reasons behind Governor Kasich's announcement to hold to State of the State address outside of the statehouse.
Republican Congressman Mike Turner endorsed fellow Republican Mitt Romney for president. Fifth-term Turner on Tuesday called Romney the leader the party needs to restore economic growth and defeat President Barack Obama in November.
Ohio's primary is March 6.
In a statement from his campaign, Romney said he welcomes Turner as a supporter of fiscal responsibility and national security. Romney says Ohio will be important to the election.
