Ohio voted down its controversial Issue 2 yesterday in a major victory for unions and progressives across the state. Now that Issue 2 has been struck down, a law previously introduced by Governor John Kasich that would have banned state employees from collective bargaining will not go into effect. Kasich admitted that "the people have spoken" and said that he would "spend some time and reflect on this."

The Nation‘s John Nichols joined The Ed Show after voting had closed last night to explain what this victory means to Ohioans and Americans. He urges Republicans in other states to take this clear message from Ohio.
