A Message from the Chairman:
Welcome to our Lorain County Republican Party Annual Lincoln Day Dinner.
What a difference 540 days make.
March 6, 2020...
…was the last time we met. 500 guests gathered at German’s Villa to hear keynote speaker Jim Jordan. At the time, Helen Hurst was our chairman. One week later, we began the two month lockdown due to the spread of the Wuhan Virus. Unfortunately for us, less than a month later, Helen passed away. Fortunately for me, I was elected to be her successor.
Over the course of the rest of the year, our leadership team and volunteers came together as one to complete our mission, the mission to elect Republicans to office. Many were shocked that President Trump won Lorain County by 4,000 votes. Also shocked were the county commissioners who lost to Dave Moore and Michelle Hung. We were also surprised that Mike Doran beat an incumbent recorder. We also elected Dr. Frank Miller as coroner.
Our other candidates, Jim Jordan, Bob Gibbs, Gayle Manning, Dick Stein, also won.
The following day, the Chronicle Telegram editorial declared that:
"Lorain County Goes Red!"
We hardly rested on our laurels as we began 2021 with the mission to raise $40,000 to fund our candidates in 2022. Thanks to our Freedom Circle, 27 individuals who have pledged to donate $1,000.00 or more this year, we have raised to date $37,000.00. Do we dare to dream of stretching our goal for 2022 to raise $50,000.00 more? Why not? Add to this the total net proceeds from tonight’s dinner for a fund of $50,000+. 4 months remain in the year so let us keep the money momentum going.
Let us also remember that 2021 is an important election year for candidates for city council, township trustees, judges, and board of education. Early voting begins October 5.
Tonight we come together to remember 9/11/2001, a day that will live in infamy. Let us remember those Americans who lost their lives that day. On that day we pledged to use any means necessary to hunt down those responsible and our military did so.
Lincoln Day 2021 is the beginning of Election 2022. Tonight, we come together to kick off our 2022 election year with many of our 2022 candidates present. I expect 2022 to be a repeat of 2020 when we turned Lorain County Red. Our U.S. senate and congressional candidates along with our state candidates will lead the way. Locally, we will have excellent candidates for county commissioner, auditor, and judges.
Let us set aside our differences and come together as one, united in our principles beginning with Freedom, Faith and Family.
On behalf of our officers, Executive and Central Committees, thank you, thank you, thank you for being here tonight in support of our party, and elected officials.
Good luck and Bless!

Statement from ORP Chairman Jane Timken Regarding Senator Rob Portman's Decision to Not Pursue Re-Election in 2022
“Rob Portman is a statesman whose service to our country and our party over nearly three decades has been invaluable. His leadership and temperament will be missed in the halls of the U.S. Senate and amongst Ohio Republicans. While we have huge shoes to fill in the U.S. Senate, I thank Senator Portman for his service and hope all Ohioans will join me in recognizing his accomplishments that furthered our great state.”

Read the OH filing and the Texas lawsuit for yourselves!
Many local Republicans have had questions, confusion, and concern regarding Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost's recent Amicus brief to the Supreme Court of the United States in regards to the recent Texas Lawsuit.
AG Yost's filing can be read here: OH AG Amicus brief filing
The Texas lawsuit, joined by 17 other states, can be read here: Texas Lawsuit
Ohio has has asked the court to rule but is supporting neither party. Read this for yourselves and then give the AG's office an email message. You can drop them a line at the following email address provided below. Let them know if you agree or disagree with our Attorney General's decision on this matter. Let your voice be heard directly.
So much for "no evidence" of fraud or cheating in the state of Georgia. The headline on this story is a link to the Government Oversight section of the hearing which took place on December 3rd in the morning hours.
Here is another link.
This link takes you to the GA Senate Judiciary committee portion of the hearings held in the afternoon hours of December 3rd.
All videos posted regarding all State Legislature hearings on voter fraud have been sourced directly to their respective state government websites to ensure you, the reader, aren't watching edited or tampered footage. This and other news posts on this site are recordings of the real hearings, where real evidence of fraud was presented.
The mainstream media will not cover or comment on the information presented to the Michigan State Legislature. So we have directly linked the video of the Trump legal team's presentation and several witnesses testifying. It is posted on the State of Michigan Legislature's website.
Side note: You would expect to find this video cataloged as "elections", but instead it was buried on the state legislature website under "oversight" videos. The powers that be in Michigan would prefer that you not see this tape. All the more reason for you to watch for yourself and see what really went on in the State of Michigan.
You may have heard there is no evidence of voter fraud in PA. Well here is the recording of the public hearing as posted by the PA State Senate. Listen to the evidence and arguments presented for yourself, then you be the judge as to whether the news media is lying to you.
Help Republicans keep control of the US Senate!
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.
We need Poll observers!
Democrats have failed Lorain County!
Early voting data in battleground states shows Trump outpacing national polls giving Biden a narrow edge.
Remember to vote early!
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
