Voter fraud is exceedingly rare across the country. In Ohio? Cases referred for prosecution in 2012, 2014 and 2016, by Ohio's Republican Secretary of State represented only .002% of the ballots casts. https://t.co/aYqLwgzezG

The only reason any of this came to light is because of the great local reporting from @jennsmola and @AlissaWidman. https://t.co/ilCe0BjvwM

Picked up friends' plant-of-the-month this week while they're out of town and it essentially requires purification in the waters of Lake Minnetonka, so now this week is all Prince all the time.

Timken, as state party chair, had backed DeWine for re-election until jumping into the senate race. Following Mandel's lead, watch how she evolves on DeWine in the coming weeks. https://t.co/0SPZvLQjXP
