This morning, local headlines are heralding the good news that thousands more manufacturing jobs are coming to Ohio – no thanks to a single Republican in Congress. Thanks in large part to President Biden and Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act, Honda and LG have committed more than $5 billion toward electric vehicle battery manufacturing and factory retooling across Ohio. This announcement is expected to create more than 2,500 jobs and is another example of the manufacturing boom for electric vehicles under President Biden and Democrats’ leadership – no thanks to Ohio Republicans, who all voted against the Inflation Reduction Act.
See what voters are reading in Ohio about how President Biden and Democrats continue to drive the manufacturing boom in Ohio and nationwide:
