NY Times: GOP fears the spread of RON
Besides helping give the RON amendments campaign a bigger profile, today's story in the Times cuts to the heart of the matter for the RNC:
In a telephone interview, Mr. Finan said if the suit failed, a new group he had founded, Ohio First, would take up the cause with the expected backing of Republicans in Washington. Mr. Finan predicted that if the redistricting amendment became law, Republicans would lose six seats in the House of Representatives and that "you'll see this idea spread to other states."Backing of Republicans in Washington? We hear they are already taking Finan, Kevin DeWine, Husted and others to DC to train them on how to fight RON.
