PolitiFact Ohio back for 2018!

We’re excited to announce that starting today, PolitiFact Ohio is back in business. (Sorry, Ohio politicians.)

We’ll be fact-checking the key races in the state, including the open contest to replace Gov. John Kasich and the U.S. Senate election. Our first fact-check is a claim by Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, a Republican running for lieutenant governor.

Husted claimed that one vote has decided an Ohio election 141 times over the last five years. Is that true?

We won’t spoil it for you, so read the fact-check here.

Our work will appear in the Dayton Daily News, a new partner for PolitiFact, and you’ll continue to see our work on WCPO in Cincinnati and WEWS in Cleveland.

We hope to add news partners in Columbus, Toledo and Akron. If you’re a news organization interested, email [email protected]. Readers can send requests for Ohio fact-checks to [email protected].
