Jason Snead, Executive Director of Honest Elections Project Action, released the following statement:
“Honest Elections Project Action applauds Sens. Rob McColley and Theresa Gavarone for introducing a bill to prevent foreign nationals from influencing ballot measures campaigns in Ohio. Just last year, the left-wing Sixteen Thirty Fund, which counts foreign national Hansjorg Wyss as one of its largest financial backers, spent $12 million in Ohio alone on campaigns to amend the state constitution. Ohioans should be able to go to the polls confident their elections are free of foreign influence.
“According to recent polling conducted by Honest Elections Project, 86% of Ohio voters believe foreign nationals should not be influencing American elections, and 68% support cutting off dark money groups that take foreign money. Ohioans deserve elections that are free from foreign influence.”
