chairs disavow mailers

The chairmen of the Republican Party of Coshocton, Delaware, Holmes and Knox counties released the following statement:

“Recently, we have been made aware of mailers that have gone out supporting candidates for the District 19 seat of the Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee. These mailers claim endorsement, claiming the support of various county party Republican PACs. These entities are in no way affiliated with our county party organizations and are all registered under the name of an individual in Southwest Ohio.

“To name an organization after a county where you have no affiliation is meant purely to mislead voters. County party committees stand opposed to these deceptive tactics and call on the individual or individuals making these endorsements to stop. The ORP State Central Committee races are important contests, and voters deserve to be presented with fair information to make their choices.”

County chairmen include Coshocton County GOP chair Steve Hall, Delaware County GOP chair Shawn Parker, Holmes County GOP chair Rob Hovis and Knox County GOP chair Thom Collier.
