Message from Ohio Republican Chairman Kevin Dewine

Just a quick note to say THANK YOU for the confidence you put in our candidates yesterday and for the support you provided throughout this election season. What we accomplished is nothing short of historic. Together, we:


  • Defeated an incumbent governor for only the third time in Ohio history.
  • Retained a seat in the United States Senate.
  • Swept every statewide office, defeating four incumbent executive officeholders.
  • Won solid majorities in both legislative chambers.
  • Added at least 12 seats in the Ohio House, defeating 10 incumbents and picking up two open seats.
  • Gained two seats in the Ohio Senate for the largest majority since 1967.
  • Defeated five congressional incumbents, winning 13 of 18 U.S. House seats.
  • Helped fire Nancy Pelosi and put an Ohioan in line to be the next Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.
  • Defeated a sitting chief justice for the first time in 24 years.
  • Kept three seats on the Ohio Supreme Court.
  • Elected the first female chief justice in the history of the state.
  • Broke every volunteer voter contact number on record. Improved early voting performance to its highest level in party history.
  • Turned out more voters than the Ohio Democratic Party, which pundits labeled as the nation's third largest Democratic organization and "the best state party in the country."

All on a fraction of the resources available to us in any previous election of the past decade. Most importantly, we kicked down Barack Obama's firewall in Ohio as the 2012 presidential season gets underway.

We could not have done any of it without you. Our party has come a long way in the last four years, and we have a long way to go. Now it's time to lead Ohio to a better future, and Republicans will work tirelessly to earn the confidence entrusted to us on Tuesday.

Thank you again for your support.

Kevin DeWine

Time for the GOP to Focus on Democrat Corruption

The Democratic Party holds to three major rules concerning politics in this country:

1. Democrats make "mistakes," Republicans commit crimes.

2. Republicans are not allowed to harp on Democrat "mistakes" but Democrats are free to confront Republicans over the slightest "moral discrepancy" whenever and wherever they choose.

3. If Republicans do somehow muster the courage to point out a Democrat "mistake," as they did with the great perjurist-in-chief Bill Clinton, they are to be charged with using "the politics of personal destruction." 

But now, with internet sites and cable channels alike carrying the news of Friday's indictment of Baltimore's Democrat Mayor Sheila Dixon for perjury and the impeachment of Illinois Democrat Governor Ron Blagovich after he tried to sell a Senate seat to the highest bidder, can't we finally gather the courage to ignore the Democrats politically correct guide to political confrontation and throw down the gauntlet? 

It's clear from here that the Democrats represent the politics of personal corruption.

From Corruption to Accountability

 Finally: From Corruption to Accountability

For Immediate Release
Contact: Rob Frost

Thursday, September 9, 2010
(216) 621-0077

Voters from every Cuyahoga community, incensed with corruption and disgusted by the continued reports of back room bargaining, bribes and patronage laden offices, overwhelmingly passed Issue 6 last year, and in doing so laid the groundwork for true government reform in Cuyahoga County. Today, we finally start clearing out the corrupt political bosses who have been abusing our system of government for the past decade and a half. It is now time for the civic and political leadership of this area to demonstrate a commitment to work together in this process of transition to a new government.

Said RPCC Chairman Rob Frost "Frank Russo's resignation and indictment, coming on the heels of State Auditor Mary Taylor's performance audit, gives us the opportunity to move toward a fiscally sound, transparent and accountable democracy for the people of Cuyahoga County."

Frost reiterated his call from a month ago upon Democratic Chairman Stuart Garson to commit to appointing a qualified, experienced professional for Russo's replacement as County Auditor, not someone running for County Executive or County Council, nor anyone beholden to those political candidates. Said Frost: "This can be an opportunity for the community to come together and rise above partisan politics to form a transition government, but that cannot occur if the Democratic Party chooses to use this as a political appointment to gain support in the coming election."

Concluded Frost: "This appointment will be a test of whether the current Democratic leadership is able to put the interests of the people of this County ahead of the interests of the Democratic Party. It is time for us to move from a culture of corruption to a culture of accountability."

Barack Obama has awakened a sleeping nation

Gary Hubbell, Aspen Times Weekly

Barack Obama is the best thing that has happened to America in the last 100 years. Truly, he is the savior of America's future. He is the best thing ever.

Despite the fact that he has some of the lowest approval ratings among recent presidents, history will see Barack Obama as the source of America's resurrection. Barack Obama has plunged the country into levels of debt that we could not have previously imagined; his efforts to nationalize health care have been met with fierce resistance nationwide; TARP bailouts and stimulus spending have shown little positive effect on the national economy; unemployment is unacceptably high and looks to remain that way for most of a decade; legacy entitlement programs have ballooned to unsustainable levels, and there is a seething anger in the populace.

That's why Barack Obama is such a good thing for America.

Jimmy Dimora's indictment caps the crumbling of his classic Democratic political machine

dimora-head-down.jpgCLEVELAND, Ohio -- As fast as Jimmy Dimora built a political machine to rule Cuyahoga County, his machine's collapse came even faster.

When federal agents raided Dimora's house and office in July 2008, citizens got their first glimpse at a corruption probe that over the next 26 months would tear apart county government.

Ever since that day, Dimora, 55, and his closest friends and political allies -- some innocent, others not -- lived under intense scrutiny. Within a year, Dimora was pushed to the sidelines of the Democratic Party he had led for 16 years. He defiantly refused to resign as a county commissioner and challenged prosecutors to charge him or leave him and his family alone.

Early this morning, they opted for the former. Agents arrested Dimora at his Independence home and led him out in handcuffs and chains.

"I'm sickened by it," Tim Hagan, a fellow Democrat and commissioner, said this morning after hearing of Dimora's arrest. "It's been a nightmare, and it's coming to an end."

Dimora maintains his innocence. But, unquestionably, the events of the past two years diminish his legacy as one of the greatest political talents Greater Cleveland has ever seen.

While fallout from the federal investigation cannot yet be measured completely, one certain souvenir is the new form of government corruption-weary voters approved last year. New leaders will be elected this fall. Replacing Dimora, if he finishes his term, as well as the two other commissioners, will be a county executive with a local constituency unrivaled in terms of size.

It is the type of office that Dimora, a man for whom big is too simple an adjective, might crave under different circumstances. Fueling the irony, Democrats harbor legitimate fears that he has left the party in such turmoil that a Republican or independent might win the job.

If Democrats ultimately are ousted from the highest level of county government, it would represent a total unraveling of everything Dimora accomplished as a modern-day boss.
