Biden Campaign Drops the Ball in Ohio

A report surfaced on Sunday morning that could be a major problem for Joe Biden.

Biden’s campaign has apparently dropped the ball on filing for Joe Biden to be on the ballot in Ohio for the general election.

There has been a conflict spotted that could result in Joe Biden being left off the ballot.

Problems for Joe Biden

Counsel for Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose has penned a letter to the Biden campaign that the deadline for certification is August 7.

That date is little more than a week before the Democrat National Convention takes place on August 19.

According to the report, this creates “an apparent conflict in Ohio Law.”

According to Ohio law, a candidate must be confirmed by their national party before they can be placed on the ballot.

With the convention taking place well after the deadline, you can see where the conflict arises.

Attorney Paul Disantis wrote, “I am left to conclude that the Democratic National Committee must either move up its nominating convention or the Ohio General Assembly must act by May 9, 2024 (90 days prior to a new law’s effective date) to create an exception to this statutory requirement.”

The Biden campaign pushed back on the report, stating, “We’re monitoring the situation in Ohio and we’re confident that Joe Biden will be on the ballot in all 50 states.”

Trump won Ohio in both 2016 and 2020, and Ohio will again play a significant role in who is elected president in 2024.

It is among a handful of battleground states that are deemed to be the key to this election.

In the most recent polling, Joe Biden is trailing Donald Trump by 11 points in Ohio, so he has a lot of ground to make up regardless.

Can you imagine the outrage by the Biden campaign if the DNC refuses to change the date of its convention and the Ohio General Assembly does not pass an exception for the campaign in order for Joe Biden to be on the ballot?
