Chairman Paduchik Statement on Jennifer Brunner Running for Chief Justice

COLUMBUS, OH— Ohio Republican Party Chairman Bob Paduchik released the following statement on Jennifer Brunner, who was just elected Justice in November, running for Chief Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court:

“It is hard to fathom why a Justice who was elected just over six months ago and has not yet written a majority opinion would ask to be promoted to Chief Justice.

“Ohioans deserve a qualified Chief Justice who is steady and principled, not someone who is singularly focused on self-serving promotions.”
