If anyone has an interest in being a part of the ground game to help defeat the democrat ticket all the way down the ballot this year, please click the "Volunteer" button at the bottom of this email and let us know what you're willing to do to help make a red wave ripple all the way down to the local level!

Campaigns are looking for help on the ground come November and they are going to need precinct leaders and volunteers to help elect our Republican candidates!

July 25, 2022

It is less than one week until the August 2 Primary Election and unlike the May Primary Election, the Lorain County primary only involves candidates for the Ohio House of Representatives, Districts 52, 53, and 54, the Ohio Senate, District 13, and the Democrat and Republican State Central Committee.
Early Voting is currently being held at the Lorain County Board of Elections through August 1. You may choose to request an Absentee ballot and vote by mail now as well. Primary Election Day August 2, 6:30am-7:30pm is your third option for voting.
I am currently the Male member of the Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee, District 13, and was appointed to fill a vacancy September 10, 2021.
In reaching out to colleagues, friends and neighbors asking them to vote for me, I’m often asked, “David, I’m a Democrat and I want to vote for you, is this possible?” My answer is, “yes you may. When voting Early or Election Day, simply ASK FOR THE REPUBLICAN BALLOT.” Some states have “open primaries” while others offer “closed primaries.” Here is the difference. Ohio has an “open primary” which allows for any registered voter, regardless of previous affiliation, to vote in either party’s primary election. This is how you may identify as a Democrat or Republican. In a “closed primary,” you must register your party affiliation prior to the primary and may only vote in your party’s primary.
Turnout is expected to be low. Please vote NOW, or on August 2nd.

Okay, this REALLY may seem repetitive again, but we must really stress that voters NOT ignore the August 2nd Primary!
Our Primary was split into two separate elections this year.
Due to the current election map situation our State Representative, State Senate, and State Central Committee races have been pushed back to August 2nd.




Here is a list of the races for the August 2nd Primary:

  • In Ohio's 54th Statehouse District we have incumbent Dick Stein who is now running unopposed since his challenger has withdrawn.
  • In the 53rd Statehouse District there is a race between Marty Gallagher and Sarah McGervey, the winner goes on to face Democrat incumbent Joe Miller in November.
  • In Ohio's 52nd Statehouse District incumbent Representative Gayle Manning is running unopposed. 
  • In Ohio's 13th State Senate District we have incumbent State Senator Nathan Manning being challenged by Kirstin Hill, who is currently our representative on the State Board of Education.
  • The currently appointed Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee Man, David Arredondo, is the incumbent being challenged by Mike Witte and Peter Aldrich.
  • Incumbent Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee Woman, Patty Stein, is being challenged by Jean Anderson.




We want to thank you for giving us your time and attention these last few minutes. We hope this newsletter helps you learn more about Republican events happening in your area!


Don't forget to Vote in the August 2nd Primary and most of all to work together for victory in November!

Have a wonderful week. 


Until next time,
