With the decision by the Ohio House of Representatives to uphold the election of Rep. Al Landis (R-Dover) as a member of the Ohio House and to support the unanimous decision of both the Tuscarawas and Holmes county boards of elections, House Speaker Pro Tempore Matt Huffman (R-Lima) released the following statement:

“This vote by the House affirms the unanimous decision by both county boards of elections—which are comprised of Republicans and Democrats—that the manner in which Rep. Landis was elected was fair and lawful. There was no evidence to suggest that there were any irregularities in the 98th House District election. The election contest is a process the House had not undertaken in more than a century, and I applaud the work of the select committee and the Republicans and Democrats from the county boards of election in thoroughly vetting this issue.”
