Ohio's elections chief says a recent overhaul of how the state draws its legislative districts shows the importance of never losing hope in politics.
Republican Secretary of State Jon Husted, who was inaugurated Monday for a second term, encouraged those attending his swearing-in ceremony to support the overhaul.
Husted had sought changes to the so-called redistricting process for at least a decade. Last month, the Legislature passed a bipartisan plan that will go before voters this fall.
Auditor Dave Yost and Treasurer Josh Mandel also were sworn into office during separate Statehouse ceremonies on Monday.
Attorney General Mike DeWine took his oath of office on Sunday. Gov. John Kasich began his second term with a formal swearing-in at midnight.
