Tue., 12:26pm:Polivka lashes out at state Dem leader

WARREN — Trumbull County Democratic Party Chairman Dan Polivka said Tuesday that state Democratic Party leader Chris Redfern is “out of line” and “shooting from the hip” on his decision to revoke the local party’s franking privilege and access to an electronic voter database.

Polivka went on to dare Chris Redfern, Ohio Democratic Party Chair, to “take your best shot” and invited Redfern “to come to Trumbull County to see how we elect Democrats,” referring to losses Democrats suffered in statewide elections in 2010.

The conflict stems from how the local party voted Saturday to pick a county commissioner.
