PoliticsOhio: Why the Attacks on Ohio's State Party Chairmen?

Ellen Belcher, who's filling in for Emily McCord, interviews Bill Hershey, the former Dayton Daily News Statehouse Bureau Chief and now an occasional columnist for the Akron Beacon Journal, about the efforts to dump both the chairmen of Ohio's Republican and Democratic parties. Fairborn's Kevin DeWine was ousted as GOP party chairman in April, while Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern beat back his critics.
Hershey, who is co-authoring a book about the legendary Ohio and national Republican Chairman Ray Bliss, talks about the role party chairmen can play in an all-important presidential election year.
