Efforts To Eliminate Gerrymandering In Ohio; Nurses Overtime Bill

Featured Audio

Ohio's congressional districts are gerrymandered in such a way that Democrats have virtually no chance in 12 safe Republican districts and Republicans have virtually no shot in four Democratic districts. Take one look at the map and it really defies logic. So who is going to fix it? The legislature is working on a plan. Critics say it doesn't do enough, and they may go to voters with their own reform. We'll look at the impact of gerrymandering and the various efforts to make Ohio's congressional districts better reflect the political balance in the state. Later, details on proposed legislation outlawing mandatory overtime for nurses.    Plus the latest on the ever-shifting Governor's race.
