A compelling new ad from Ohio features several military veterans who now work as fire fighters urging voters to reject Issue 2 on Tuesday. The fire fighters marvel at the fact that they have to fight in the country they have served to protect in order to have a voice in their own safety and workplace conditions.

Issue 2, if it is voted down, would repeal Gov. John Kasich's Senate Bill 5, which was an assault on the collective bargaining rights of Ohio workers. The ad featuring the fire fighters is sponsored by the International Association of Fire Fighters.

More on the ad:

More than 1,000 Ohio fire fighters and paramedics are serving in the military, and after putting their lives on the line to protect our national security, these veterans have been stunned to learn that politicians used SB 5 to take away the voices of those who preserve our domestic security.
