Gun owners have a chance to hit a grand slam in the August 2nd elections, so mark your calendars to go vote. More on that in a minute.
But first, what if I told you that arguably the most important political entity in Ohio is probably one that you’ve never heard of, and one which wields immense power over the Ohio General Assembly and statewide offices?
And for those of you who already guessed it, you’re RIGHT: I’m talking about the Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee.
What is it and why should you care about it?
Chris teamed up with current State Central Committee Woman, Melanie Leneghan to explain everything:
Simply put, the Republican State Central Committee controls the levers of Republican political power in Ohio.
They decide which candidates get endorsed BEFORE the primary elections happen, or rather, before We the People choose who WE want representing us.
And then they go to work sell their hand-picked, establishment candidates to you and the rest of the voters as the ‘endorsed Republican’- deceiving you as to who the real pro-gun (or pro-life, pro-freedom, etc) candidates are!
Not only that, but once a candidate is endorsed by the State Central Committee, they get access to discounted mailing rates, massive stacks of cash for their coffers and an army of GOP operatives to help run their campaigns.
And often, the members of this committee are spouses of politicians, lobbyists, or RINO swamp monsters that have been in there way too long!
One of the most infamous and notorious examples of this abuse happened in 2018, when the ORP’s State Central Committee endorsed Mike DeWine and effectively shut out 100% pro-gun Mary Taylor way before the Republican grassroots had the chance to vote in the 2018 Gubernatorial Republican Primary elections, paving the way for DeWine’s tyrannical rule.
Make no mistake, the members of the Republican State Central Committee who voted to endorse Mike DeWine are responsible for all the shutdowns, mask mandates, business closures, and Republican sponsored gun control push that followed from the moment he was endorsed by the State Central Committee.
Some have asked, “Isn’t the Republican party supposed to be about ‘conserving’ freedom and defeating Democrats, not fellow Republicans?”
We are glad you asked.
In order to combat this corrupt system, Ohio Gun Owners has surveyed the candidates running for the Republican State Central Committee, and we will be posting the results of our survey program very soon.
Gun owners and gun rights supporters should not only “have a voice” on this committee, but quite frankly, they should RUN this entire committee.
To make things fair again, for starters, the Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee needs to stop picking RINO Establishment losers and stay the hell out of contested Republican primary elections so that gun voters across Ohio can fairly vet each candidate on merit!
That’s why it’s so important that you know what Senate district you are in, find out who the candidates are, and vote PRO-GUN on August 2.
