It wasn’t a surprise. David Pepper received unanimous backing from executive committee members Tuesday night to become the new chairman of the Ohio Democratic Party.
The party’s executive committee met Tuesday night in Columbus. In the end, it was a sweep for Pepper, after his opponent, former lieutenant governor candidate Sharen Neuhardt of Dayton, dropped out of the race Monday.
Pepper says he thinks the party needs to more clearly define its core message of supporting working Ohioans.
