Campaigns off and running ahead of early voting start on State Issue 1 — and abortion isn’t far behind

COLUMBUS -- "On Friday evening, Angie Greer knocked on doors in a leafy Columbus subdivision with spacious, 1980s-era homes.

Although their ranks included some young families, residents there described their neighborhood as skewing older, and were surprised to learn that some who lived there supported abortion rights.

Greer said while it’s not the case for everyone, abortion definitely is on the minds of many people she encounters. 'I think most people realize the motivation for Issue 1,' Greer said. 'So it’s definitely a topic of conversation.'"
