3,500 GOP challengers - let the game begin

The GOP announced that they will have 3,500 challengers working the polling sites in urban areas of Ohio. The New York Times as a fairly complete story on this.

This, from the Times, give a sense of what the GOP challengers will be up to:
. . . challenges could be made on four main grounds: whether the voter is a citizen, is at least 18, is a resident of the county and has lived in Ohio for the previous 30 days.

Elections officials in Ohio said they hoped the criteria would minimize the potential for disruption.

The Times doesn't name these "elections officials" but the Democratic elections officials aren't singing that tune. If this is a reference to people in the Secretary of State's office, we think everyone knows what feable grasp of reality the Kenny Krew has.

We are bewildered why more Board of Elections didn't put their foot down like the Montgomery Co. board did.
