The Grand Old Party Endorses Slate of Candidates

By Cyndy Rees


In an effort to build party unity, the Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee voted to endorse their slate of candidates for statewide office. 


After all of the candidates, or their surrogates, had the opportunity to speak the committee deliberated in private over the endorsement process.  


Once the deliberations were complete Chairwoman Timken took charge of the endorsement proceedings and a field of candidates was narrowed down to the final endorsed GOP slate. This is Democracy in action.


The Ohio Republican State Central Committee endorsed:

Mike DeWine and Jon Husted for Governor and Lt. Governor

Dave Yost for Attorney General

Robert Sprague for Treasurer

Frank LaRose for Secretary of State 

Keith Faber for State Auditor


3rd Rail sat down with Dave Johnson, Columbiana County Republican Party Chairman and State Central Committee member and asked him about the endorsements.
