Weekly Reporter Roundtable

New Ohio House Speaker Jason Stephens
Ohio House

Jason Stephens, the new speaker of the Ohio house is a Republican of course.

Stephens has roots in local government, and just three years under his belt in the Ohio General Assembly.

His surprise election to the powerful speaker's role signals a much different approach from the presumptive choice, the more conservative Derek Merrin of northwest Ohio.

It took a cadre of Democratic votes to make it happen.

Joining us to discuss Stephens and this shift in conservative politics are reporters Andrew J. Tobias, Anna Staver and Andy Chow.
