Democrats file complaint against Renacci
Allege coordination with outside group over cancelled ads

This story is part of a special series.


 
In The Region:
The Ohio Democratic Party filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission Monday against Congressman Jim Renacci. It’s alleging that Renacci’s campaign is coordinating with an outside group. Last week, Renacci cancelled $850,000 worth of TV ads. And by Saturday, a super PAC backing GOP candidates, called the Congressional Leadership Fund, had bought $300,000 worth of anti-Betty Sutton ads in the hotly contested race for the 16th district. The U.S. Supreme Court decision called Citizens United allows unlimited outside spending, but no collaboration between outside groups and candidates’ campaigns. Renacci spokesman James Slepian.

“Obviously we’re not coordinating with any outside groups. I believe the Congressional Leadership Fund has been running ads in this race for a long time now, and it looks as though they’re continuing to do that.”
The Renacci campaign cancelled the ad buys, saying it could no longer cut through the clutter of political ads on TV. Instead, Renacci ads moved primarily to ESPN and cable news stations.
Listener Comments:

Mr. Rennaci was supposed to represent the 16th District (including Alliance). We NEVER saw him in Alliance in 2 years! He spent his time in cool Wadsworth! Go Betty!
