Candidates have ties to House Bill 6

Every corner of Ohio politics has been touched in some way by former state Rep. Larry Householder and the House Bill 6 scandal.

Multiple candidates in the crowded GOP field can be traced to the controversy through votes, donations and ties to a coal lobbying group that benefited from its passage.

But Democrats have signaled they plan to make the scandal and the legislation key issues in future campaigns, including for the 15th District.
