After a statewide push by Ohio Treasurer Richard Cordray, nearly 75% of the state’s annual issue of highway capital improvement bonds sold to retail investors, according to the treasurer’s office.

The retail sales came after Cordray toured across six of the state’s largest cities in mid-April to meet with investors and encourage them to buy the bonds, which he said would allow them to invest in the future of Ohio. For the state, retail investment allows better pricing and the chance to build a large network of local investors, Cordray said.
