Ohio Senate Dems Statement on Husted's Tweet
April 3, 2021
Today, the Ohio Senate Democratic Caucus released the following statement in response to Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted’s hurtful tweet about the origins of Covid-19:

“Words matter. At a time of increased violence against the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, the words used by the lieutenant governor can reinforce racial tropes that have been recently used to incite violence against members of the AAPI community and risk putting them in danger. We support and validate the concerns of the members of the AAPI community who tell us they feel offended or threatened. We call on the lieutenant governor to listen to his Asian American neighbors and apologize.”
