Sides Spend Millions On Ohio's Union-Limiting Law

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The union-backed group pushing for the
repeal of Ohio's new collective bargaining law has spent more than
$17.3 million in the fight and has another $4.3 million on hand
heading into the Nov. 8 election.
Campaign finance reports filed Thursday show We Are Ohio has
raised a whopping $19 million from July to mid-October.
The coalition wants to overturn the law, which bans strikes by
public worker and restricts their collective bargaining rights.
A group defending the law reported raising $7.6 million for the
period and spending almost $6 million through its political action
committee. Building a Better Ohio's nonprofit also released names
of its donors, but not the amounts they gave.
Insiders have predicted the ballot fight could cost more than
the $33 million spent in last year's governor's race.
