Cincinnati Republicans Express Resentment that Some Republican Nominees for County Office Have an Opponent on the Ballot

According to this newspaper story, Republicans in Cincinnati (Hamilton County, Ohio) are expressing unhappiness that the Democratic Party runs candidates in partisan races in the county, even though one particular candidate in particular, Martha Good, has run and lost five times and spends little money campaigning.

Republicans control all three branches of Ohio state government, and if they are unhappy with partisan judicial elections, they are free to begin the process of converting these elections to non-partisan elections, or possibly to eliminating judicial elections and making judges appointive.
