OH-18: Holmes County GOP Endorses Bob Gibbs

(Millersburg) – Republican State Senator Bob Gibbs won the endorsement of the Holmes County Republican Party today in his bid to unseat Zack Space in Ohio’s 18th Congressional District. Holmes is the first county party to endorse in the race.

“I am very pleased that Holmes County has once again recognized Bob’s experience in state government and his enthusiasm in representing Holmes County’s interests in Congress,” said County Republican Chairman Bob Hovis.

Gibbs won over the support of the committee largely by demonstrating his strength and ability to win in the Fall. He told the Committee in his remarks that he had raised over $250,000 in his bid for Congress, more than three times the amount of any other candidate. He has key support among the grassroots, including several County Chairs, the entire Republican delegation to the Ohio House and Senate from the district, and several Ohio Republican members of Congress. He was also lauded by the conservative group Americans for Prosperity for signing the “No Climate Tax Pledge”.

As you can see, the Gibbs campaign will have a lot to say about the “climate tax,” as it relates to how Zack Space’s voted in favor of Cap and Trade when the heart of Ohio’s coal industry existing inside the district.

Considering that Fred Dailey‘s campaign consulting firm and media firm just recently stopped working for him (his campaign manager endorsed Gibbs), I think it is fair to say the conservative Gibbs will be the Republican candidate. (Unless crazy-fringe Coach Dave pulls off an upset!)

    I heard from a friend who was at the Holmes County endorsement meeting that Jeannette Moll didn't show up and that she withdrew and didn't bother seeking the endorsement. Even if it's Gibbs' home county, she should have made a good-faith effort. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.
