Statement on the US House OH-8 District race

Jim Condit Jr., who is using the Green Party Of Ohio's ballot line for a run for the 8th Ohio Congressional District, is within his legal means to use the Green Party’s ballot line. He gathered the necessary signatures and is appearing on the ballot. The Green Party of Ohio State Central Committee wants our supporters to know that his on-line and in-person statements reveal that not only does he not support the Green Party’s 10 Key Values, but that he also supports positions that are in direct contradiction to those values. The Ohio Green Party has disavowed Mr Condit. He does not have our endorsement nor support. We ask our members and supporters to refrain from casting a vote for him.
