ORP Chairman DeWine, US Senate Candidates Address Executive Committee
On Thursday, June 23rd, Ohio Republican Party Chairman Kevin DeWine addressed the Warren County Republican Party Executive Committee during the 2nd Quarter Meeting. Chairman DeWine highlighted the state party's efforts to raise awareness about the Ohio Healthcare Freedom Amendment, and picked up petitions containing over 2,000 signatures to get the amendment on the November ballot. He further discussed Warren County's role as we head toward the 2012 presidential election, including a focus on registering voters, educating voters, and ultimately getting our voters to the polls on Election Day.
The Executive Committee also heard from several candidates that are running in the upcoming 2012 Republican Primary. U.S. Senate candidates Eric LaMont Gregory and Kevin Coughlin personally addressed the audience, while Treasurer of State Josh Mandel, who had a previous commitment, sent a letter which was read by Central Committee Chairman Jeff Monroe. Additionally, Tenth District Court of Appeals judge and Ohio Supreme Court candidate Judith French also addressed the Executive Committee in person. We expect additional candidates for statewide office will be visiting Warren County over the upcoming months to address our Executive Committee regarding their respective candidacies.
