Ohio Secretary Of State Drops Bombshell Warning To Democrats: Biden Could Be Left Off Ballot

(Congressional Agenda) – Oops!

The Democratic Party made a huge mistake in the state of Ohio, one so massive it could result in President Joe Biden being left off the ballot come November. Wouldn’t that be hilarious? All of the time and effort the left poured into trying to prevent former President Donald Trump from being on the primary ballot — failing miserably — only to have made a goof up that could leave their own nominee off the ticket of a super important state. It’s delicious.

“Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose’s office on Friday informed the Ohio Democratic Party that the Democratic National Convention is currently scheduled too late to qualify for the state, according to ABC News,” The Western Journal reported. “The Buckeye State has a deadline of Aug. 7 to confirm a presidential candidate on the ballot, 12 days before the beginning of the Aug. 19-22 convention that is set to take place in Chicago and nominate the party’s candidate.”

The Republican National Convention is currently scheduled to take place July 15-18 in Milwaukee, which is well before the deadline in Ohio. And as we all know by now, the presumptive nominee is Donald Trump, who slaughtered his competition during the primary race, demonstrating Republicans are behind him.

“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,” Chief Legal Counsel Paul Disantis penned in a letter that was obtained by ABC.

The party has confirmed their receipt of the letter and stated they are currently reviewing it.

When a representative for Biden’s campaign was contacted by ABC, they remarked, “We’re monitoring the situation in Ohio and we’re confident that Joe Biden will be on the ballot in all 50 states.”

As per The Washington Post, this is not the first time Ohio’s law has played a role in presidential nominations. Back in 2020, both parties were scheduled after the Ohio deadline.

“Knowing this, state lawmakers made a one-time change to reduce the deadline from 90 days before the election to 60, Niven said,” the Post noted.

There will be no easy way out of this mess for Democrats. If they move up the date of the convention, this would create a number of problems for the party, though, of course, ensuring their nominee is on the ballot should be the number one priority.

“Alternatively, Ohio’s legislature passing any measure to move back the deadline could be complicated considering the heavy majority that Republicans have in the state Senate and House of Representatives,” the article disclosed. “Additionally, the state’s governor is Republican Mike DeWine.”

The presidential race is very close right now, which means Biden wants to take action to ensure he’s on every single state’s ballot.

“Niven told the Post he expects Trump to win Ohio in November, as he did in 2016 and 2020. But if Biden isn’t even on the ballot, he said, it could depress Democratic turnout, hurting the party’s candidates in House and Senate races,” the WJ reported.

However, as of now, Biden is actually on a path to not qualifying for the Ohio ballot. This is too rich, folks. The irony is killing me. It’s amazing.

“There’s an immense irony that while Democratic states such as Colorado have attempted to force former President Donald Trump off the ballot through shoddily created arguments — arguments rejected by a unanimous Supreme Court — Biden could be prevented from being on the ballot by an oversight by his own party,” the piece divulged.

This is their own fault.
