With the President and his legal team continuing to fight for every legal ballot to be counted, we want to provide him and the party with our political support. As I type this email, Ohio Republican Party field staff are arriving in Georgia to help with the effort to maintain a Republican majority in the Senate and while many may not be able to physically travel to Georgia, there are many other volunteer opportunities to support Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. 
To get involved in the Georgia Senate races, volunteers should fill out the form below and we will get them more information on how to contribute in the manner in which they indicated on the form. 



A message from the Chairman

Good Afternoon Team:
My apologies for not sending this sooner but in no ways does it mean that I did not feel it important to do so. Yesterday morning I had two radio interviews, a, SKYPE interview with the Voice of America, and a video interview with MSNBC.
Clearly, national and international media was intrigued by a solid Blue county going for Trump and other GOP candidates. We helped generate a record turnout, especially in the areas other than Elyria, Lorain, and Oberlin. Turnout in our Red areas was 70%+. The Pioneer Ridge Community Center turnout exceeded 90%.
I'm sure we all feel proud of our candidates and our party for our achievement on election day. At the same time, I know we are saddened by our candidates who did not win, especially our judges, Let me assure you, it wasn't because of a lack of desire or effort. I can say with certainty that EVERYONE did their best to win.
Similarly, I am extremely grateful to all our volunteers who freely gave of their time to our candidates and party. I am blessed to have met and worked with so many first time, as well as party regulars in many capacities. My hope is that everyone stays involved because our party needs you. Yes, we need new candidates for next year's municipal and township elections.
It is hard to believe but yesterday, The Chronicle Telegram published a very positive editorial titled, "Lorain County Goes Red." Everyone take a bow. 
For now, I ask everyone to take rest and enjoy yourselves, your family and friends. We'll be back in action soon!
With Deep Appreciation,

David Arredondo

A Message from David G. Arredondo, Chairman, 

Welcome to the new Lorain County Republican Party website, a website created for the purpose of connecting you, the voter, with Republican leadership.

Our mission is this: to recruit, support, and elect Republicans to public office at the local, state and national level. At the same time, we wish to reinforce traditional American values of Faith, Family and Country. American values are those embodied in our Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution. We honor our flag and stand for the Star Spangled Banner.

Our website will also provide you with valuable information about our local leadership team, our Area Chairmen, so that you can contact them and become involved. They are the leaders for the 7 areas of our county and they look forward to hearing from you.

We also provide you with a link to share your contact information—address, email and phone, which will allow us to message you and send important information about events and fundraisers.

Last but not least, we wish to appeal to you to donate through the "Contribute" link. Donations will primarily support our local candidates and their campaigns.

The November 2020 election is the most important one of our lifetimes. We need to count on you for your vote and support for our President and the entire Republican ticket. On election night 2016, Donald Trump won Lorain County and we are expecting the same for 2020. 

With your support and votes, I know our Republican ticket will win in November.

Forward Together!

Republicans win BIG in Lorain County!

Despite the national election result still being determined, Lorain County helped deliver a BIG win for President Trump in Ohio!

Both David Moore and Michelle Hung won their respective races for County Commissioner. WE DID IT! We will have real Republican leadership in Lorain County for the first time in over 100 years!

Congratulations to Mike Doran on winning the County Recorder race, providing a much needed change to the office.

Great job to all of the candidates, campaign staffers, and volunteers. Without YOUR efforts, none of this would have been possible. We can all now look forward to a county government that works for the people, and not just themselves.


Lorain County Election Results

We need Poll observers!

Two weeks to go, and we need your help one last time!
The Lorain County Republican Party will be appointing volunteers as official Election Day Observers who function to officially monitor activities at designated polling locations on Election Day, November 3, between the hours of 630am and 730pm.
Currently we have about 75 polling locations that are set up for Lorain County, we have identified at least half that as a party we would like to have observers at to make sure, with all the issues with mail in ballots and in person voting that we feel comfortable the election is fair. I ask that you pass this message on to as many people as you can. All of our candidates have spent countless hours and dollars to get us to this point. We cannot let them down on election day by not supporting them as poll observers. This is one of the most important jobs in the election cycle. In the past, we have seen issues with intimidation, assisting voters to vote democrat or even illiterate poll workers. Our job is to see these actions and notify the BOE to assist in correcting.

Currently we have 12 volunteers. This will allow up to observe only 1 in 6 locations. Forcing us to choose where we are. I know we are exhausted and have done our part, I just ask for a few more hours and then we can enjoy 4 years of happiness.
Please help us fill this most important role. Let myself of your area chairs know you can help or send us names of people you can get to help out.

Letter from the OSBA Chairman regardinging 2020 OSC judicial candidates.

2020 Supreme Court of Ohio Candidate Ratings

Fellow Members of the Ohio State Bar Association,

I am pleased to inform you that the bipartisan OSBA Commission on Judicial Candidates has completed its evaluation of the four candidates running for the Supreme Court of Ohio for the Nov. 3, 2020 General Election. As members of the OSBA, you are receiving this information prior to the official release to the media and the general public later today.

Operating under the process adopted by the Board of Governors, Commission members scored each candidate according to the following criteria: legal knowledge and ability, professional competence, judicial temperament, integrity and diligence, personal responsibility, and public and community service.

Out of 30 possible points, candidates receiving a total composite score of 25 or higher, based upon their average scores in each category, earned a rating of “Highly Recommended.” A score between 19 and 24 would garner a rating of “Recommended.” And those earning 18 or less, would be deemed “Qualified by Statute.” Each candidate was scored on an individual basis, without regard to whom they were facing on the November ballot.

The ratings and scores are as follows:

Judge Jennifer Brunner was rated Recommended, with a score of 20. - Democrat

Justice Judith L. French was rated Highly Recommended, with a score of 27. - Republican

Justice Sharon L. Kennedy was rated Recommended, with a score of 23. - Republican

Judge John P. O’Donnell was rated Recommended, with a score of 24. - Democrat

These scores were informed by a thorough evaluation of the candidates by the Commission, including a written questionnaire and resume, as well as a review of each candidate’s decisions, writings, publications, letters of reference, docket reports, financial disclosure statements and other public records. Lawyers, judges and other citizens familiar with each candidate’s reputation, past performance and qualifications were consulted as part of the vetting. And finally, each candidate was interviewed individually by the Commission last week.

Though judges make decisions that affect the everyday lives of Ohioans, voters consistently report that they do not know enough about the candidates to make informed decisions. I’d like to thank the candidates, the members of the Commission, and the OSBA for their efforts to provide context and good information to members of the bar, as well as the public, and their commitment to promoting a well-informed electorate this November.

Martin E. Mohler
Chairman, OSBA Commission on Judicial Candidates
