COLUMBUS - Voters First has released its first television ad of the election.
The ad can be seen here.
The ad emphasizes the importance of giving redistricting power back to the citizens of Ohio, instead of the politicians and lobbyists who abuse it. The advertisement was filmed at the 49er Diner in Cleveland's Slavic Village.
"The campaign in support of Issue 2 is ramping up its efforts as most voters are now paying attention. We know that this race is tightening and that voters are beginning to respond to Voters First's message of reform," said Sandy Theis, spokeswoman for Voters First.
The Huffington Post recently named Issue 2 one of the "Ten Ballot Measures To Watch In The 2012 Election," leading to broader exposure.
Theis said, "The people of Ohio have had enough. This campaign is aggressively spreading the message of common sense reform and the citizens have taken notice. We won't let the politicians and lobbyists take away our voice or our vote any longer. That's why we're voting YES on issue 2."
