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!

Ohio Republican Party Statement on Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio Endorsing Tim Ryan

COLUMBUS—Today, Ohio Republican Party Chairman Bob Paduchik released the following statement regarding Tim Ryan’s endorsement from the Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio:

“Transforming from a Catholic altar boy into a pro-abortion extremist, Lyin’ Tim Ryan campaigns as a moderate but supports radical taxpayer funded abortion on demand, with zero restrictions, up until the moment of birth.”—Chairman Bob Paduchik, Ohio Republican Party


Eric Holder’s Latest Attempt to Help Ohio Democrats

COLUMBUS—Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder, who is the first sitting Cabinet member in U.S. history to be held in contempt of Congress by Republicans and Democrats, is relentless in his efforts to fundamentally change Ohio’s political makeup in favor of Democrats.

He failed to win control of the Ohio Redistricting Commission for Democrats in 2018, and campaigned to get judicial activist Jennifer Brunner elected to the Ohio Supreme Court to do his bidding during Ohio’s redistricting process.

Now, looking to November’s General Election, he has identified the Governor, Secretary of State, Auditor, State Supreme Court, State Senate, and State House races as 2022 Democracy Targets.

The myth that Eric Holder and Democrat front groups are fighting for “fair maps” has been repeatedly debunked, but unfortunately they will continue to bully and fight in Republican led states to gerrymander power for Democrats, all while blatantly ignoring Democrat led states.

The majority of Ohio voters despise Eric Holder and Democrat front groups like Ohio Environmental Council, who failed in their efforts to ‘sue until it’s blue.’ Now they are doubling down—vying to take control of the process by campaigning for judicial, executive, and legislative Democrats who want to gerrymander the districts to favor their party.”—Chairman Bob Paduchik, Ohio Republican Party
With Ohio statewide Democrats failing to raise money, keep an eye out for Eric Holder and his kind to start dumping their dark money and resources to prop up their failing campaigns that are being wholly rejected by Ohio voters.

Tim Ryan will Say AnYtHiNg to Get Ahead

COLUMBUS—Lyin’ Tim Ryan will say absolutely anything to find his next job. Fortunately for Ohio workers, he crashed and burned in his bid for President, Speaker, and eye at Governor.

Unfortunately for Ohio workers, despite his pro-worker rhetoric at home, he has caved and voted with Joe Biden’s failed policies 100% of the time since Biden took office. In fact, Ryan changes his tune on just about every issue over his 20-years in office.

“Lyin’ Tim Ryan betrayed Ohio workers long ago to gain favor with Washington Democrats, and now as he runs for U.S. Senate it’s laughable to watch him hide his 20-year voting record supporting Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden.”—Chairman Bob Paduchik, Ohio Republican Party

Most recently, he began parroting his latest talking point that he opposes Joe Biden on tariffs, and “agreed with Trump on trade.” That’s bizarre.

During the 2020 Democratic Primary, Ryan called Trump’s tariffs “abominable” and said they should be “revised immediately.”

Ohio voters are learning what workers in the Mahoning Valley discovered long ago—that fake Tim Ryan is a spineless career politician who sways wherever the political winds blow.

“Tim Ryan conveniently forgets he bashed Trump’s tariffs just a few years ago. Ryan is a professional political posturer and complete fraud who has flip flopped and let Ohio workers down for the 20 years he has been in office. He never has, and never will, advocate for Ohio families and American manufacturing, and that’s why we need JD Vance working for us in the U.S. Senate.”—Tom McCabe, Mahoning County GOP Chairman


Chairman Paduchik Releases Statement on Fake Tim Ryan’s Outrageous Claims to Fox News

COLUMBUS—Today, Chairman Bob Paduchik released a statement in response to Tim Ryan’s outrageous claims in a recent Fox News article:

Fake Tim Ryan will say anything to run from his 20-year record of abandoning working men and women. Ryan voted against every meaningful tax cut that has come before him, including Republicans’ 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Actthe largest tax reform package in historyOhio voters see Ryan for the fraud he is and look forward to electing JD Vance in November.“—Chairman Bob Paduchik, Ohio Republican Party




President Trump’s tax cuts that Tim Ryan voted against benefitted the American people:


  • 82% of middle-class households received a tax cut, an average of $1,260.
  • 90% of Americans saw an increase in take-home pay.
  • In 2018, wages grew by the largest amount in a decade.
  • The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act doubled the Child Tax Credit, saving working families more than $100 billion.
  • These tax cuts also resulted in 3.3% wage growth in 2018, the best in a decade while unemployment hit historic lows.
  • This is a stark contrast to the abysmal state of the economy that Tim Ryan and Joe Biden have created with their failed policies.

Court Dismisses Frivolous Lawsuit Against Ohio Republican Party

Columbus—Today, ORP Chairman Bob Paduchik released a statement following the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas’ dismissal of the civil case against the Ohio Republican Party filed by Laura Rosenberger, Mark Bainbridge, JoAnn Campbell, Joe Miller, and Denise Verdi:

“On May 31, 2022, the Ohio Republican Party received the trial court’s decision dismissing Plaintiffs’ complaint and rejecting Plaintiffs’ attempt to file an amended complaint. The trial court’s thorough and well-reasoned 17-page decision makes clear that there was no legal basis for Plaintiffs’ claims.

This frivolous lawsuit was a political attack against the Ohio Republican Party, the State Central Committee, and the candidates we serve. The five committee members that filed this suit have disgraced themselves by placing their personal political agendas above the party’s mission to elect Republicans to office.

With the 2022 election cycle in full swing, this meaningless distraction has come to a conclusion to the benefit of Republicans across Ohio.”—Chairman Bob Paduchik, Ohio Republican Party

ICYMI…. Federal Judge Eviscerates Russia Collusion Hoaxer Marc Elias For Aiming To Undermine New York Elections

In case you missed it… The Federalist recently ran an article that exposed Marc Elias for his long record of playing fast and loose with the law and using his vast resources to rig elections across the United States. His most recent efforts solicited a sharp rebuke from a federal judge in New York.

Elias’ most recent berating is far from the first time his election meddling tactics were shunned or completely rejected by a court. In January, a federal court refused to grant Elias’s request to rescind their sanctions against him for deceiving judges in his attempts to fight Republicans in Texas who banned straight-ticket voting in the 2020 election. Two of the three judges on the original panel agreed to sanction Elias and his team for purposefully lacking “candor” in a courtroom setting.

Unfortunately, this is the same Marc Elias who has stopped at nothing in his efforts to gerrymander Ohio’s legislative and congressional maps in favor of Democrats. He is also the same Marc Elias who funded the discredited Steele Dossier meant to destroy Donald Trump’s presidency.

There is no bridge too far for radical leftists like Marc Elias. His lies, deceit, and unsavory tactics do not have a place in the Buckeye State, but that doesn’t seem to bother Ohio Democrats who are happy to do his bidding as long as the outcome favors their party.”—Ohio Republican Party Spokesman Dan Lusheck

Bottom Line: Marc Elias and his Democrat allies do not want “fair maps.” They want to use their endless resources to help Democrats win in states like Ohio where voters consistently reject their far-left policies.
