Via press release from Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose:
I’m grateful that nearly 1.3 million Ohioans stood with us in this fight, but this is only one battle in a long war. Unfortunately, we were dramatically outspent by dark money billionaires from California to New York, and the giant ‘for sale’ sign still hangs on Ohio’s constitution. Ohioans will see the devastating impact of this vote soon enough.
The radical activists that opposed Issue 1 are already planning amendments to shut parents out of a child’s life-altering medical procedure, force job killing wage mandates on small businesses, prevent law abiding citizens from protecting their families and remove critical protections for our first responders.
I’ve said for months now that there’s an assault coming on our constitution, and that hasn’t changed. I’m just getting started in the fight to protect Ohio’s values.
Last month LaRose launched a bid for the US Senate.
Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose went on Fox & Friends to talk about his Issue 1 failing and said, “the all out assault is coming from the radical left … the war continues. I’ve just begun to fight.” pic.twitter.com/9XBIFwpcfv

You should resign.
You selfishly concentrated on your own political career rather than the important issue you were hired to do.
We are tired of selfish politicians. https://t.co/XIV2zpfdJH

I thought the law in Ohio is to keep campaign messages separate from official communications? This appears to be both. On a Twitter feed that now serves both. https://t.co/uRUl96bAgf

LaRose led the pro-Issue 1 fight and evidently is doubling down.
Which can be explained by the logo at the top of that statement. https://t.co/IKyH2O5zo5

When Ohio SOS looks across the border and says “hold my 🍺” — LaRose’s official statement on federal campaign letterhead & calling the majority of Ohio voters radical activists. This is a fascist takeover attempt across red states, but Ohio citizens just gave us Hoosiers hope. https://t.co/IrRVq5EGis

By the time Republicans notice states keep voting IN FAVOR of abortion, there will be no elected Republicans left.
Ohio makes it 7.
