Triantafilou Releases Statement on Biden’s Visit to East Palestine

COLUMBUS–Today, Chairman Alex Triantafilou released the following statement on the announcement that Joe Biden will finally visit East Palestine:

“This clumsy Biden Administration has now decided to visit the good people of East Palestine only as a campaign stop to try and resuscitate his collapsed presidency. How foolishly transparent. When the victims there needed Joe Biden, he was out to lunch. Too little, too late.” – Chairman Alex Triantafilou, Ohio Republican Party

Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted Endorses President Donald J. Trump

COLUMBUS—Today, as the Presidential Primary Election officially kicks off in Iowa, Ohio Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted has cast his 2024 endorsement for President Donald J. Trump.

“The Ohio Republican Party looks forward to working with Lieutenant Governor Husted to deliver another major victory for Donald J. Trump here in Ohio. Husted’s strong background in workforce development and improving Ohio’s business climate fits hand in glove with President Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda.”—Chairman Alex M. Triantafilou, Ohio Republican Party

Previously, Husted served as a delegate to the 2020 Republican National Convention and co-chair of Trump’s re-election campaign in Ohio.

The Ohio Republican Party State Central and Executive Committee endorsed President Trump on December 1, 2023.

Sherrod Brown Chooses Far-Left Liberals Over Police

Today is National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, and Ohioans across the Buckeye State are reminded of the selfless sacrifice and bravery of all of Ohio’s police officers.

Unfortunately, Sherrod Brown’s record shows that he does not share that appreciation.

The reality is, when law enforcement needed support the most, far-left liberal Sherrod Brown caved and appeased the anti-police wing of his party, aligning himself with the likes of Cory Booker and Kamala Harris.

Now that he is up for re-election, Brown wants nothing more than Ohioans to forget that he was an original co-sponsor of Democrats’ Justice In Policing Act of 2020 which, among other things, aimed to limit qualified immunity for police officers. Not to mention his claim that policing ‘reinforces’ racism as he demonized the brave officers who defend our communities.

Years later, Brown’s inability to stand up for law enforcement continues to have a ripple effect, with cities like Cleveland continuing to lose police officers and departments being dangerously understaffed.

Bottom Line: If Sherrod Brown was a friend of law-enforcement, he wouldn’t have turned his back on them and aligned with the far-left policies of Cory Booker and Kamala Harris.

ICYMI… Federal judge tosses lawsuit challenging Ohio’s voter ID law

In case you missed it… Earlier this year, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio GRANTED a motion for the Ohio Republican Party to intervene against Marc Elias’ lawsuit to undermine House Bill 458, which included commonsense election protections such as requiring photo ID.

Today, those efforts paid off as a federal judge threw out the lawsuit from left-leaning groups challenging a Republican-backed Ohio law requiring voters to show ID at the polls and altering the state’s early-voting times, among other changes.

Ohio GOP Chair Alex Triantafilou, in a statement responding to the order, said, “Election integrity is integral to our system of government, and the Ohio Republican Party will always fight for commonsense measures to secure fair and accurate elections.”

“HB 458 at most requires only a tiny fraction of Ohio voters to modify their voting behavior—and imposes nothing more than minimal burdens to do so,” the Ohio GOP’s motion for summary judgment stated. The motion also asserted that the plaintiffs in the lawsuit “failed to identify even a single voter who was prevented from—or even impeded in—voting in” statewide elections held in May and August last year.

Sherrod Brown is No Friend of Law Enforcement

If you are covering Sherrod Brown’s event in Toledo today, please consider the following statement:

“In 2020, Sherrod Brown claimed that policing ‘reinforces’ racism and demonized the brave officers who defend our communities. If Brown was a friend of law-enforcement, he wouldn’t have turned his back on them when they needed support the most.”—Ohio Republican Party Spokesman Dan Lusheck

Sherrod Brown Has a Border Crisis of His Own

The Biden Border Crisis is nothing but embarrassing for Sherrod Brown, and dangerous for millions of American families. In his latest flip flop—Sherrod Brown is deciding to care about the border in the midst of the worst border crisis in history.

January 2019: “Apprehensions of illegal crossings at the border are at a historic low…” but Donald Trump is bad.
December 2022: “I don’t hear much about immigration from voters, except for people on the far right that always want to gain political advantage by talking about it.”
December 2023: US-Mexico border crossings set monthly record high

January 2024: Brown calls for “bipartisanship” and says his goal is to avoid people crossing the border and bypassing the legal immigration process.”

Bottom Line: Sherrod Brown does not care about the border or keeping Americans safe. His change of heart now has nothing to do with protecting the American people and everything to do with his own political future.
