LCRP Newsletter 11/16/2022

Chairman's Message
Ohio indeed has a Red Wave, with most of the ticket winning by double digits.  Senate candidate JD Vance won by 7 points. The 53rd district state rep candidate lost by 4 points. The auditor candidate lost by 5. Indeed Miller and Snodgrass usually win by double digits, so a moral victory at least.
Given the overwhelming outcome for our candidates, it is hard to believe that some Republicans feel that Ohio elections are not secure. Those who believe this and fail to vote, refuse to vote, are hurting our candidates.
Perhaps we can hold some workshops demonstrating the process.
All of our seven areas covering Lorain County need to begin recruiting candidates for 2023. In 2021 we had more than 30 candidates who stepped up and ran for office for the first time.
We have one more race to win and that is the county commissioner contest between Jeff Riddell and Matt Lundy. Currently Riddell leads by more than 300 votes with provisional and late arriving absentee ballots remaining to be counted. Results will be announced November 28.

David Arredondo - Executive Chairman - LCRP

The Avon-Avon Lake Republican Club meeting featured Ken Hammontree as famous WW2 General George Patton. Sometimes a History lesson can be fun!

The Young Republicans held a small gathering at GOP HQ for an election night party. Several of our poll workers, a few YRs, and a photographer from the Chronicle Telegram were in attendance. The Chronicle decided NOT to publish anything and no other photos were taken. School Board Candidate and Treasurer for the Lorain County YRs, Sarah McGervey, was there to say thank you to poll workers and volunteers.

We want to say thank you to all of our poll workers and amazing volunteers who helped get our candidates elected. You folks helped to re-elect ALL of our Republican Statewide office holders, you helped elect J.D. Vance to the U.S. Senate, you helped elect ALL of our OSC Justices and 9th District Judges, you helped re-elect Congressman Bob Latta, and it looks like we may have flipped that third and final Commissioners seat! (fingers crossed)

Congratulations on the wins. Our losses were few and narrow, demonstrating an ever increasing Republican presence in Lorain county. We have momentum, and we plan to keep it moving forward!




We want to thank you for giving us your time and attention these last few minutes. We hope this newsletter helps you stay up to date on Republican activity in our County!

Congratulations to all of our election winners!


Until next time...
