A lineup of prime-time conservative thinkers will be on tap for the 2018 Midterm Battleground Talkers Tour Oct. 12 at Ohio Dominican University in Columbus.
On Nov. 6, Ohio will again play a pivotal role in deciding the direction of the nation. Republicans will be trying to defend their slim majority in Congress against a Democrat promise to take over and reverse the Trump revolution.
Ohio and California have been singled out as perhaps the two most critical states in the upcoming midterms, because they have a number of seats in Congress that the Democrats see as vulnerable. Wealthy Democrats have unleashed a flood of money into these congressional districts, targeting Republican members of Congress such as Reps. Steve Chabot, (R-OH-1), Dave Joyce (R-OH-14), Troy Balderson (R-OH-12) and Mike Turner (R-OH-10).
In each one of these races, it boils down to a conservative who is pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, pro-border security and pro tax-cuts possibly being replaced with a candidate who support free and easy abortion up to the ninth month of pregnancy, gun control, open borders, tax increases on the middle class and a renewed Obama-like regulatory burden on businesses.
The Ohio governorship is also up for grabs, with Republican Mike DeWine facing off against former President Obama’s top anti-business regulator, Richard Cordray.
The Democrats have shown what lengths they are willing to go to to stop a single pro-life justice from getting on the U.S. Supreme Court. They have said they will impeach President Trump if they can wrest control of Congress away from the Republicans on Nov. 6. It doesn’t matter to them that the economy is starting to grow at rates not seen since the 1960s under President Kennedy and that millions of Americans are going back to work.
The Battleground Talkers Tour will answer questions about whether Ohio can continue the momentum started in 2016. A VIP reception starts at 5 p.m. and the main event runs from 7 to 9:30 p.m.
More information, including how to buy tickets, can be found at the event website.
