COLUMBUS—For the past week, Ohio Democrats have been desperate to take credit for Ohio Republicans’ work to land the Intel project in Central Ohio, the largest single investment in state history. While the federal CHIPS Act passed with bipartisan support, Ohio Democrats are quick to ignore the reality that this project landed in Ohio thanks to Republican leadership.
“Joe Biden and Tim Ryan are trying to take a victory lap on the historic work of Mike DeWine, Jon Husted, and the Republican Legislature. This project could have gone anywhere in the United States, but Republicans’ sound policies and strong leadership are the only reason we are celebrating this groundbreaking in Ohio today.“—Chairman Bob Paduchik, Ohio Republican Party
Bottom Line: What did Joe Biden and Tim Ryan actually do to land Intel in Ohio? The answer is clearly nothing.
