Ohio Democrats’ Dysfunctional Family Reunion

COLUMBUS—This weekend, Ohio Democrats are hosting a Dysfunctional Family Reunion, and we expect it will be notably similar to any other family political squabble, with very little to celebrate.

The Ohio Democrat Party is desperate to make inroads in Ohio with their party’s out of touch policies, many of which they cannot even agree on themselves. This, combined with a weak slate of down-ticket statewide candidates, is a recipe for disaster for them.

For example, when Joe Biden announced his student loan forgiveness boondoggle, the ODP was quick to thank him for his policies that would see Ohio workers pay off other people college degrees. Taylor Sappington took the approach of an entitled child and believed he “earned” loan forgiveness, and Tim Ryan and Nan Whaley did a 180-degree flip-fop and claim to now oppose the plan.

According to WVXU, Tim Ryan is “going out of his way” to make Democratic voters mad at him. He even went so far as to acknowledge that the brand of the Democrat party is radioactive, which is why he pretends to be conservative despite voting with Biden 100% of the time.

“We agree with Tim Ryan that the Democrat brand is radioactive, but he is missing a very important point—it isn’t the brand, but the out of touch policies, rampant spending, and failed leadership at every level of their party that is failing.”—Ohio GOP Spokesman Dan Lusheck

Bottom Line: With Ohio Democrats in utter disarray, its no surprise they neglected to invite crazy uncle Joe to their dysfunctional family reunion.

Ohio GOP Considers Formal Complaint Against Brunner Campaign for Violating Ohio Judicial Code of Conduct

COLUMBUS— Today, the Ohio Republican Party announced plans to instruct legal counsel to investigate and, based on their findings, potentially file a formal complaint against Jennifer Brunner’s campaign for violating the Ohio Judicial Code of conduct.

Rule 4.3, Campaign Standards and Communications, of the Ohio Judicial Code of Conduct states that:

During the course of any campaign for nomination or election to judicial office, a judicial candidate, by means of campaign materials, including sample ballots, advertisements on radio or television or in a newspaper or periodical, electronic communications, a public speech, press release, or otherwise, shall not knowingly or with reckless disregard do any of the following: 


  1. Post, publish, broadcast, transmit, circulate, or distribute information concerning the judicial candidate or an opponent, either knowing the information to be false or with a reckless disregard of whether or not it was false; 



1] A judicial candidate must be scrupulously fair and accurate in all statements made  

by the candidate and his or her campaign committee. This rule obligates the candidate and the  

committee to refrain from making statements that are false. 


Jennifer Brunner’s campaign has failed to live up to the Ohio Judicial Code of Conduct by falsely stating that Republican justices saluted when they were clearly waving to the crowd.

However, the video of the Newsmax coverage Brunner’s campaign cites clearly shows the true nature of the events. When President Trump recognized the Republican Ohio Supreme Court justices, they simply stood up and waved. Brunner’s campaign watched that same Newsmax video, and intentionally and dishonestly used a still photo to lie about what was happening and disparage Jennifer Brunner’s fellow justices.

“Jennifer Brunner’s campaign has clearly and shamelessly violated the Ohio Supreme Court’s Code of Conduct by blatantly lying about their Republican opponents,” said Chairman Bob Paduchik. “This is a matter that must be addressed immediately, and we are planning to engage our legal counsel to look into the matter and file a formal complaint.”

This is not the first time her campaign has been caught in a lie, but it is the first time they have been caught blatantly lying about their opponent.

Bottom Line: Jennifer Brunner should be disciplined for violating judicial ethics and allowing her campaign to dishonestly disparage her fellow justices.

Ohio GOP Statement on Democrats’ Pathetic Attempt to Take Credit for Intel

COLUMBUS—For the past week, Ohio Democrats have been desperate to take credit for Ohio Republicans’ work to land the Intel project in Central Ohio, the largest single investment in state history. While the federal CHIPS Act passed with bipartisan support, Ohio Democrats are quick to ignore the reality that this project landed in Ohio thanks to Republican leadership.

Joe Biden and Tim Ryan are trying to take a victory lap on the historic work of Mike DeWine, Jon Husted, and the Republican Legislature. This project could have gone anywhere in the United States, but Republicans’ sound policies and strong leadership are the only reason we are celebrating this groundbreaking in Ohio today.“—Chairman Bob Paduchik, Ohio Republican Party

Bottom Line: What did Joe Biden and Tim Ryan actually do to land Intel in Ohio? The answer is clearly nothing.

Amy Cox’s Profanity Laced Rant

COLUMBUS—Ohio Democrats are not shy about using inappropriate, profanity laced language to try to appeal to Ohio voters. In fact, their faux outrage has become downright comical as the election season progresses:
Chairman Paduchik rightfully called failed Mayor Nan Whaley the “profanity candidate” who has no ideas.
But most recently, Democrat candidate Amy Cox, who is running for the Ohio’s 40th House District, really outdid herself. While apparently trying to appeal to her former students, Cox went on a profanity laced rant on her TikTok, saying things like “nobody f*ckin’ asked you” and oddly declaring that she’s “not a f*ckin square.”
While Ohio Democrats should be embarrassed by the conduct of their candidate, that hasn’t stopped them from continuing to proudly support her.

Bottom Line: Amy Cox may be a raving lunatic, but she seems to fall right in line with the rest of the out-of-touch Democrat Party. It’s no wonder Tim Ryan says the Democrat brand is radioactive.

Failed Mayor Nan Whaley’s Rampant Hypocrisy

COLUMBUS—Everyone knows that Nan Whaley was a complete failure for the City of Dayton. From raising taxes and fees while the city endured record high poverty rates, to failing to manage skyrocketing violent crime on her watch, she utterly failed as the executive of her city.

Sadly, not only is she a poor leader who left her city worse off, but her record shows a disturbing trend of lies and hypocrisy:

On issue after issue, failed Mayor Nan Whaley shows an astounding level of hypocrisy because she knows her record is unpopular with Ohio voters; a stark contrast to Governor DeWine who has shown consistent leadership and continues to deliver on his promises to Ohio.“—Ohio GOP Spokesman Dan Lusheck
Bottom Line: Nan Whaley is out of touch with Ohio voters, and her hypocrisy is catching up with her. She pretends to be from the “working class,” but in reality, she is nothing more than a lifelong political staffer who has pushed Democrats’ radical agenda every step of the way.

Elected Democrat Prosecutor in Cuyahoga County Blasts Ohio Supreme Court Ruling for Allowing Accused Murderers to Walk Free

CLEVELAND, OH—Investigative reporters from Cleveland’s Fox8 recently set out to answer a disturbing question: why are so many accused violent criminals walking the streets on ankle monitors before trial?

The answers Fox8 reporters uncovered are disturbing. The facts also show why observers show Ohio voters will overwhelmingly pass State Issue 1 and vote to elect three Ohio Republicans to the Ohio Supreme Court this November.

As part of the report, Fox8 highlighted the disturbing trend of accused murderers and other violent criminals being released from jail with only an ankle monitor. The story details how one of the men released on electronic monitoring, after being arrested for murder, later murdered another person in front of children.

The reporters also asked Democrat Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley what he thought was behind the disturbing trend of accused murderers walking the street. Fox8 quoted O’Malley saying, “Regretfully the Ohio Supreme Court has issued the DuBose v. McGuffey opinion which states that courts cannot consider public safety when setting a bond. Hopefully, this illogical decision will be corrected on the November ballot by State Issue 1, which is a constitutional amendment that will allow judges to consider public safety when setting a bond.”

“When an elected Democrat prosecutor blames a Supreme Court decision joined by Jennifer Brunner and endorsed by Marilyn Zayas for allowing accused murderers to walk free and commit more crimes, you know that the Democrat candidates for Supreme Court are out of touch with reality,” Ohio Republican Party Chairman Bob Paduchik said.

Dubose v. McGuffey, the Supreme Court decision criticized by Prosecutor O’Malley, was a 4-3 decision that said judges in Ohio could never consider factors like the safety of the community or the victim when setting the amount of bail for someone charged with violent crimes like murder or rape. Democrat Jennifer Brunner was one of the four justices who voted in favor of the decision. Justices Pat DeWine, Pat Fischer, and Sharon Kennedy voted against the decision. Judge Marilyn Zayas, running against Justice DeWine, told the Cincinnati Enquirer in April that she agreed with Brunner and would have voted with her had she been on the court.

State Issue 1, an Ohio Constitutional Amendment, was placed on the November ballot by the General Assembly to give Ohio voters the ability to overturn the Brunner decision in Dubose and allow judges to keep violent criminals in jail where they can’t hurt other people.

“Both State Issue 1 and all three Republican Supreme Court candidates are going to win big in November,” Paduchik continued. “Ohioans want safety and security for their families, and they don’t want to worry about accused murderers walking the street with only an ankle monitor to stop them from killing someone else. Democrats couldn’t be more wrong on this issue.”


Taylor Sappington is an Entitled Child Who Wants Ohioans to Pay his Debts

COLUMBUS—As the fallout from Joe Biden’s disastrous decision to cancel student debt mounts, Taylor Sappington made perhaps the most elitist, out of touch case for student loan forgiveness yet.

He thinks he has “earned” student loan forgiveness and wants taxpayers to pay off HIS debts.

While attempting to seem relatable, this is an incredibly stupid tactic coming from someone who wants to have financial oversight of state funds and hold public officials accountable.

But that doesn’t matter to Democrats who know they are going to lose, because all that matters is tarnishing JD Vance, a Marine Corps veteran who got his start at The Ohio State University on the GI Bill.

Where did the Ohio Democrat Party find this guy? Taylor Sappington is an entitled child, and it is embarrassing that he is telling taxpayers that he believes he has ‘earned’ the right for Ohioans to pay off his debt.”—ORP Spokesman Dan Lusheck

Nan Whaley Has Lost Touch with Reality

​COLUMBUS—Another day, another independent poll showing Governor Mike DeWine with an over 15% lead ahead of failed Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, who has been unable to sell her radical agenda to Ohio voters.

And how did Whaley respond to the news? By re-posting a fake poll conducted by Democrats as a way to lie about her lackluster campaign. Sad.

If Nan Whaley believes she has any chance of winning this race, then she has truly lost touch with reality. It is already clear that Ohioans have wholly rejected her radical policies and failed record.”—Ohio GOP Spokesman Dan Lusheck

Chairman Paduchik Statement on Mar-a-Lago Raid

COLUMBUS—Today, Chairman Bob Paduchik released the following statement in regard to the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago:

“The Biden Administration’s unprecedented raid on President Trump’s residence is an extreme abuse of executive power and a naked attempt to punish a political opponent. Democrats continue to abuse the security services of our nation for political purposes as they further undermine Americans’ trust in the rule of law.”—Chairman Bob Paduchik, Ohio Republican Party

“Nan Who?” Ohio GOP Launches Website Exposing Nan Whaley’s Failures as Mayor of Dayton

COLUMBUS—A recent poll found that nearly one in three likely voters have never heard of Nan Whaley, and a Columbus Dispatch headline correctly posed the question, “Nan Who?”
Even Joe Biden’s own press secretary couldn’t quite get it right, embarrassingly calling her Nan “Whalen.
Well, this week the Ohio Republican Party launched a new website to help answer that very question. Who is the REAL Nan Whaley, and how did she fail the city of Dayton? The facts expose a nanny-state liberal who failed the people and city she was elected to serve. Ohioans want economic freedom, not nanny-state Nan.
“Just because Nan Whaley let down Dayton does not mean she should now be allowed to fail the State of Ohio, and this website will serve as a valuable resource to voters who may not yet know her disastrous record of far-left leadership.“—ORP Spokesman Dan Lusheck
Whaley’s record as mayor was chock-full of far-left policy positions that lead to record-high poverty rates, surges in violent crime, and full-throated support for President Joe Biden’s failed administration who sent our country spiraling.
“Nan Who?” you ask…. Stay tuned over the next several weeks to find out more!
