(WKBN) – Ohio Rep. Derek Mellin announced Tuesday that he was elected chairman of the Ohio House Republican Caucus. It was a statement that the Youngstown Area State Representative Al Catrona said was false.
Melrin recently lost the position of Ohio Speaker of the House to Jason Stevens.
However, Cutrona said in a statement, “Jason Stevens is the chairman of the Republican Caucus of the Ohio House and the Speaker of the House of Representatives. We do not have legal authority over any false statements sent by.”
Trumbull County State Representative Mike Loichik also said he was not part of Merrin’s group.
I also reached out to Republican Nick Santucci, but didn’t get a response.
