COAST Is Not Pleased with ORP’s Mailers

We will try to make this as simple and direct as possible: Something stinks at the Ohio Republican Party.

For months and months, major candidates and party officials have sought ways to build bridges with Tea Party leaders in order to bring that energy into a dying GOP, strangled by the likes of George W. Bush and Bob Taft.

Kevin DeWine, who is the Chairman of the Ohio Republican Party angered those activists with shenanigans surrounding the Ohio Attorney General’s race, and had that spill over into an unfortunate endorsement of David Yost in the State Auditor’s race and Jon Husted in the Secretary of State. That was two sticks poked in the eyes of conservative voters, but kind of what you would expect from the GOP leaders in Columbus.

But now Kevin DeWine and the Ohio GOP have gone too far. They have spent tens of thousands of dollars in state party resources sending mailings “endorsing” candidates for the Republican State Central Committee, the very Committee that elects DeWine and controls the state GOP.

But here’s the real problem — the claimed GOP “endorsements” never happened from what COAST can tell. There was never a meeting, there was never a vote, and there was never an endorsement by the Republican State Central Committee of any the State Central Committee candidates.

Kevin DeWine simply made it up.

Read here the false statements complaint of Clermont County Republican State Central Committee Thea Shoemate against Kevin DeWine. It has all the facts.

So, COAST asks: What the heck is wrong with Kevin DeWine? And does he expect to win elections in the Fall while slapping Tea Parties in the face in the Spring? Really?

    You go girl. It seems as though the ORP have learned their lessons well from the Chicago thugs running this Country. "Just do what you want" and don't worry about your loyal base or your constituents...you think they are too dumb to retaliate. Well you "good ole boys and girls," I think your reign will soon come to a close just as our Congress and Senators will realize in November. The silent majority is mad and they are not going to take it anymore.

    Tea Party groups and the Ohio Liberty Council are not pleased either. God bless Thea for standing up for the truth!
