Bob Cupp Replaces Larry Householder as Speaker

On Thursday, July 30, in an historic vote, members of the Ohio House voted 90-0 to remove Speaker Larry Householder (R-Glenford) from the chamber’s top leadership position. It is the first time a speaker of the Ohio House has been removed.

The action comes after last week’s announcement of a $60 million federal bribery case involving Householder and his dark-money enterprise called Generation Now.

Later in the day, House members elected Rep. Bob Cupp (R-Lima) their new speaker. Cupp is a former justice of the Supreme Court of Ohio and was previously a member of the Ohio Senate. 7/30/2020
