Ohio Repeals Senate Bill 5!

Ohio voters overturned a law signed last year that limited collective bargaining rights for public workers.

With 28% of precincts reporting, 62% voted for repealing the law and 38% against it, according to the Ohio secretary of state’s office.

The Republican controlled legislature approved the bill, and Republican Governor John Kasich signed it into law earlier this year. Opponents mounted a petition drive to get a repeal measure placed on the November ballot.

The measure was seen as a barometer for next year’s general election in the key battleground state.
