The Official Report of the Ohio House Republican Organizational Committee | October 9, 2018
Two dedicated volunteers help add some color to yards in the 88th District, here posting signs for Rep. Bill Reineke in Bellevue.
In our opinion, the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram completely nailed it with this headline and its endorsement of a great public servant.
We couldn't even fit the entire yard sign in this picture. Make no mistake, 80th District voters know who they should support this November.

Early voting begins tomorrow

Despite Democrats' best efforts to convince us otherwise, Ohioans know that voting in our state is easy and accessible. In fact, beginning tomorrow, Ohioans can begin casting their ballots for the 2018 General Election. That equates to 28 days during which you can either vote in person or mail in an absentee ballot.

Of course, you can also go the traditional route and vote on Election Day too. But no matter when you decide to vote, remember to do so only once.

While this may sound obvious to just about everyone, we take you back just a few years ago. During a voting rights rally in Cincinnati, Rev. Al Sharpton, some Democrat members of the Ohio General Assembly and other left-wing advocates cheered a woman who was charged with voter fraud after she voted for President Obama multiple times. They even called her a "hero."

Go back a little further and you might recall former Democrat state senator and Bernie Sanders supporter, Nina Turner, who in a robocall once encouraged Ohioans to "Vote early, vote often, vote Democrat."

Here at OHROC, we encourage people to vote early if you wish. But voting often and voting Democrat? Now that's particularly bad advice.

"...incendiary and insensitive..."

Democrat candidate in District 3, describing his own remarks he made over the past few years about law enforcement officers
OHROC candidates and volunteers teamed up all across the state over the weekend, knocking on more than 6,000 doors combined! We continue to hear tremendous feedback at the doors and will continue to work hard to help our candidates share their positive message.

At a Glance

Once more, NO on Issue 1
The Sandusky Register recently joined the overwhelming chorus of media, law enforcement, judicial groups, drug treatment providers and other other public advocacy groups to oppose Issue 1. One reason, among many, that the paper came to this conclusion is a point made by Rep. Steve Arndt, which is that this measure will enshrine these dangerous policies in the Ohio Constitution.

Military Spouse of the Year
State Senator, and House candidate, Gayle Manning last week recognized Elizabeth Fought of Elyria for receiving the Military Spouse of the Year Award. "She represents the many spouses, children and parents of our military members who proudly support their loved ones every day," Manning said.
