‘"I love to remind people of what farmers do," said state Sen. Darren Bailey, R-Xenia. "I tell them that farmers fix things that are broken, farmers solve problems, and farmers grow things. All of which are very true and it seems like that makes for a pretty interesting solution to some of our problems today."’

‘“I have no problem with wind energy, I have no problem with solar energy, but we’re not there yet. We need to continue to ease into that,” Republican nominee for governor Sen. Darren Bailey (R-Xenia) said at a Farm Bureau forum last month.’

 

‘“The increase in prices that you’re seeing in MISO is because… many companies in MISO are closing their coal plants because of national or state pressure,” Sen. Sue Rezin (R-Morris), who was one of a handful of Republican lawmakers to support CEJA, told The Daily Line.’
