Watch “Bad Deal” Here

Washington, D.C.— DAGA PLP, an independent organization backed by the Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA), released a new television ad this week focused on GOP candidate Dave Yost’s failure to keep Ohio safe as a prosecutor. As the ad highlights, Yost repeatedly offered plea deals to sexual predators, child pornographers, and rapists.

“Dave Yost is a bad deal for Ohio,” said Lizzie Ulmer, Communications Director at the Democratic Attorneys General Association. “Dave Yost’s failure as Auditor to properly address the ECOT scandal already made him unfit to serve as Attorney General—and now this ad highlights that Dave Yost puts the safety of Ohio families and communities at risk as well.”

“Ohio needs a leader they can trust to have their back,” continued Ulmer. “That is why Steve Dettelbach is the right choice for Attorney General in November.”
