Statements about Campaign Finance

Says Gov. John Kasich implied that a portion of workers’ compensation rebates to employers "should be directed back to him in the form of campaign cash."

"Sherrod Brown and his special interest allies in Washington are plotting to spend over $13 million" to defeat Josh Mandel.

"Foreign Chinese prostitution money is allegedly behind the groups funding Congressman Jim Renacci’s Republican majority."

Says Josh Mandel’s campaign is under FBI investigation

"My opponent, in 2008, had contributions investigated by the federal government."

"The majority last quarter of Sherrod Brown's campaign contributions came from outside of the state of Ohio."

"The Ohio Democratic Party has raised $1.1 million since the November election. A very small percentage of that has come from organized labor."

Says Jim Renacci ran against the Washington establishment in the election, but is now "hypocritically embracing it with big money, special interest fundraisers."

DeWine "took $1.9 million from big banks," "supported legislation that helped Bernie Madoff make millions" and "protected predatory lenders while families lost their homes."

The DeWine campaign is "receiving money from so many more people. (Cordray's) money is coming almost exclusively from the party, labor unions, and special counsel that he has given business to."
