In this Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2011 file photo, opponents of Senate Bill 5 celebrate in Columbus, Ohio after the bill, restricting the collective bargaining abilities of public employee unions, was defeated. In one of the polarizing election issues in Ohio, Democrats and unions vow to remind voters of Mitt Romney's support of a law supported by Republican Gov. John Kasich and approved last year by the GOP-dominated legislature that would have severely restricted collective bargaining for some 350,000 public workers, including police and firefighters. The measure, billed as a cost-cutting necessity, was resoundingly repealed in a referendum eight months later, following protests, a statewide petition drive and a multimillion dollar campaign spearheaded by unions.
