The Presidential race is getting hot. Here is Ohio, we are paying more attention because of the focus on our Governor John Kasich. His performance on the debate stage has raised some eyebrows. We understand because his support of Common Core and Medicaid Expansion through Obamacare has raised our eyebrows…and blood pressure, for years.
His performance Tuesday night in the debate was particularly ‘interesting’. Some of his comments gave him the distinguished honor of earning the lowest score in Frank Luntz’s focus group…ever.
Ohio can do better. We need to stand by principle and elect men and women who know how to stand by the Constitution and the free market. It is going to take a lot of work to move Ohio away from the influence of politicians who leave Common Core and Medicaid Expansion on the books. It will take work, but it will be done.
We are working right now on our plan for educating the electorate in 2016. We would love your support as we plan for this important year. If you could give us a donation, $10, $25, $100, it would help make our planning easier. Visit https://cincinnatiteaparty.org/donate to make a PayPal donation or send a check, made out to the Cincinnati Tea Party, to P.O. Box 203 West Chester, Ohio 45071.
Thank you for your support. We will make 2016 a year to remember.
