Biden likely off the November ballot in Ohio

Ohio House leaders said Tuesday there will probably not be a legislative solution to getting President Joe Biden on the November ballot in Ohio.

Current law says Ohio officials must certify the ballot on Aug. 7, 90 days before the election, but Biden won't be nominated until the Democratic National Convention on Aug. 19.

They're playing brinkmanship, this will be their payback if Trump is found guilty in the Stormy case.

This is a Supreme Court decision waiting to happen.

Screw tbe convention.Do a zoom nomination meeting. All the rest, the platforms and wheeling and feeling is bullshit. That’s ego stuff for the participants.

He'll be on the ballot. Everyone knows this.

Irrelevant for Biden, but bad for Sherrod Brown.

Might this lead to Trump winning the popular vote, while losing the Electoral College, exploding the heads of MAGAts?

Why the Dispatch scorn? The Dispatch was founded by Never Trumpers, Jonah Goldberg & Stephen Hayes, both of whom left cushy jobs as contributors to Fox News.

Would it be so bad for Brown to not have Biden at the top of the ticket? And if Republicans have no real incentive to vote if Trump had no major party challenger on the ballot?

Is the story true or not?

Why is it bad for Brown, since Biden will be on the ballot. Brown has taken off the gloves pretty early. Ohio Dems usually don't attack the opponent. but Brown is slicing first.

Biden will win the popular vote and Trump will win the electoral college again. Mark my words.

I hear Joe Biden is going to kick Ohio out of the Union and claim presidential immunity

Why not? 🤷‍♂️

It just makes the OH GOP look even more petty. Not a vote getter.

All this stuff is bullshit. No one believes anything anymore. There are no rules. Laws don't apply for Presidents or his minions. At this point, most people I know don't watch or read the news anymore. What's the point?

Still a battleground state, and the Rethugs are very worried.

I wish, R19. If it were, Biden would be pouring money there, along with the other rustbelt states. And longtime incumbent Sherrod Brown wouldn't be in such a tough reelection campaign against a nonentity, a would-be Trump clone.

[quote]“Ohio is running out of time to get Joe Biden, the sitting president of the United States on the ballot this fall. Failing to do so is simply not acceptable. This is ridiculous. This is an absurd situation,” DeWine said. “The purpose of the session will be for the General Assembly to pass legislation ensuring that both major party presidential candidates will be on the Ohio ballot in November, as well as legislation that would prohibit campaign spending by foreign nationals,” he explained.

No one is above the law. You follow the rules or you get burned. He won't be the first to be left off a ballot because of not following the rules.

by Anonymousreply 26May 24, 2024 2:23 AM

This is just a half assed petty attempt at retaliation against Biden because Colorado, Maine and Illinois tried to have Trump disqualified and removed from their respective ballots.

by Anonymousreply 27May 24, 2024 2:35 AM

Explanation. Republicans will not block Biden being on ballot, but want concessions in return for their action.

The 90 day rule in Ohio became law in 2010, so 13-14 years before the actions in those states.

They passed an exemption fro Romney in 2012 and for Biden in 2020, but now suddenly nothing can be done. Riiight.

It is a moot point, as noted above. Even Mike DeWine is embarrassed, and that’s no easy task.

When he is nominated too late. That’s all. It’s been fixed. The end.

Biden will be on the ballot just like Trump is on the ballot in Colorado.

[quote] How the fuck can a sitting President not be on the ballot.

Because the party scheduled the national convention without checking first to see what all the state deadlines are for ratifying their nominee for president. Now they’re finally going to do something to formally nominate Biden ahead of the August 7th Ohio deadline, as required by law. It would not have been the first time that a candidate has been kept off a ballot for not following the rules and adhering to the deadlines, although presumably a first for a presidential nominee not to be on a state ballot because of a party missing a filing deadline.

by Anonymousreply 37May 28, 2024 10:02 PM

The last 8 years have truly been a fucking nightmare. Biden isn't perfect but the sooner we can either get rid of Trump or keep him away for another 4 years the better.

by Anonymousreply 38May 28, 2024 10:12 PM

No big deal. This half-dead, meandering, old, has-been will lose this election whether he's on or off a ballot simply because he couldn't swallow some pride and step aside to let another young, electable, qualified democrat lead the party to victory.

by Anonymousreply 39May 28, 2024 10:19 PM

Imagine the upside down and partisan country we are living in. Trump who actually attempted a coup and tried to subvert our democratic process is allowed to be a candidate, but a sitting president with no illegal activity or indictments is being prevented from being on the ballot.

by Anonymousreply 40May 28, 2024 10:52 PM

R40, he’s not being prevented from being on the ballot. On the contrary, the Ohio Secretary of State has been pleading with the Democrats to certify by the deadline the names of their president and vice-president candidates, as both parties are required to by law in order to be on the ballot.

It is customary for the incumbent party to have its convention later, and further to accommodate the tv schedule for the Olympics.
