Rumor Rumor: Lucas County GOP Ready to Rumble?
Anonymous shared the tip: Saturday, the Lucas County GOP will meet to reorganize. Former State Rep. and State Sen. Mark Wagoner is challenging incumbent Jon Stainbrook for the chairmanship. Jon is a Kasich Republican who was booted from the board of elections by the Sec. of State for disruptive behavior. Mark is an attorney and partner in the city's largest law firm. These meetings are always crazy with the county sheriff providing security to break up potential fights. Mark seems to have the votes, but Jon will run the meeting and have the gavel. It promises to be crazy. Lucas County Republicans have not elected a Republican county-wide office holder since 2004.
