Chairman’s Update: 2/26/24

This weekend, I was proud to watch President Trump secure another major victory in South Carolina. The idea that President Trump is not going to be our nominee has officially withered on the vine, and it’s time to unite our party.

I’ve long said that President Trump is not a conventional politician. He has great appeal to regular voters, which stands in stark contrast to the decline we are seeing under Joe Biden.

People making an honest living know that Joe Biden and Sherrod Brown’s policies have been a disaster for working families. Buying a family home, used car, and even groceries has become almost unattainable because of rising costs and inflationary spending. In fact, 60% of Americans are still living paycheck to paycheck as inflation crushes workers’ wages.

As I travel Ohio, I am reminded of all the reasons we fight so hard for Republicans to succeed in November. At the end of the day, we are a big-tent party that is focused on working-class Ohioans and making their lives better. Sherrod Brown is once again selling his bag of goods to Ohio’s workers, but many families have already caught on to his game.

He rides on the backs of working Ohioans to get him elected, then disappears into the D.C. swamp for five years until it is time to reemerge for an election.

It is long past time to end Sherrod’s fifty-year political career.

God Bless,

Chairman’s Update: 2/20/24

Tomorrow is the start of early voting for the March 19, 2024 Primary Election, and we need as many Republicans as possible to get out and “Bank Your Vote.”While the focus of the Ohio Republican Party is always on winning in November, there are many important races going on across the state for the 2024 primary. From the courthouse to the White House, there are strong conservative candidates who are fighting for your vote. I have a deep respect for anyone willing to step into the political arena, and I encourage you to do your research and make an informed decision before casting your vote for your preferred Republican candidates.Last night, I had the opportunity to see three of those candidates face off at Findlay University for the second U.S. Senate Republican Primary debate. I enjoyed the robust discussion and came away feeling more confident than ever that we are going to finally retire Sherrod Brown after fifty years of running for elected office. Each of the candidates on stage would be a vast improvement over the far-left career politician who occupies that seat and will be a strong voice for the people of Ohio alongside Senator J.D. Vance.

Chairman’s Update – 2/12/2024

I hope everyone had the opportunity to enjoy Superbowl Sunday with friends and family. In my mind, the end of the NFL season is always a good indicator that we will really begin to see the campaign season ramp up, especially with critical races like the U.S. Senate and Presidency on the ballot.

One thing is as clear as ever—Joe Biden is unfit to lead this great nation as Commander-in-Chief. Last week, a bombshell report was released that says Biden “willfully” retained classified documents but won’t be charged because he’s an “elderly man with a poor memory.”

We have known for a long time that Joe Biden does not have the mental acuity to make the important decisions for our country, but this report strongly underscores the need to retire Joe Biden and send President Trump back to the White House.

Biden will also be in Ohio this week to finally get his campaign photo-op in East Palestine, albeit a year late and a dollar short. Despite this half-hearted attempt to save face, this is clearly just another failure from the most divisive president of my lifetime.

As always, I look forward to continuing my travels around Ohio and seeing you on the campaign trail. Thank you for all of the work that has already been done for our GOP candidates, but there is much more to do.

God Bless,

Triantafilou: Biden a Year Late and Dollar Short in East Palestine

DEAR EDITOR: Politics is everywhere, and many decisions elected officials make have at least a degree of political consideration.

However, this country has a rich tradition of putting aside political differences in the face of disaster and tragedy. Unfortunately, among the divisive rhetoric of the Biden Administration, who calls their opponents “extremists” and even “semi-fascists,” this point seems to have been lost.

On February 3, 2023, the disaster in East Palestine rocked not only the community, but the country at large. Journalists, elected officials, government agencies, and humanitarian groups all quickly responded to give this disaster the attention it deserves.

It seems the only person who was not willing to help was Joe Biden. Rather than taking time away from his many vacations to help the people of East Palestine, he made vague promises of visiting “at some point.”

Now it is a year later, with a Presidential Election less than a year away, and Biden has now decided to come in at the 11th hour for his campaign photo op. As an Ohioan from the completely opposite side of the state (Hamilton County), it is devastating to watch the way this President is now trying to resuscitate his collapsed presidency for political expedience at the expense of people in northeast Ohio.

It is well known that East Palestine is a largely conservative area of the state. The Commander-and-Chief should have been able to set that fact aside to help people in need in a timely manner.

Despite this half-hearted attempt to save face, this is clearly just another failure from the most divisive President of my lifetime.
