The Ohio Star Podcast for Feb. 21, 2022

In this episode of The Ohio Star Podcast, host Neil W. McCabe, the national political editor of The Star News Network, spoke to Star reporter Peter D’Abrosca about his story covering “Sex Week” at Ohio State University, and the two journalists discussed the trucker protest in Ottawa.

The next guest is conservative activist Scott Presler, who called in from his car tour of Ohio, giving speeches and meeting with conservatives in support of former congressman James B. “Jim” Renacci‘s challenge to Governor R. Michael DeWine in the May 3 GOP primary.

The Ohio Republican Party Central Committee held a meeting Feb. 18, where the members voted to endorse DeWine and the other statewide incumbents as a slate. This endorsement means that the state party is authorized to use its funds and resources to support the governor.

McCabe spoke about his own experience covering the meeting for The Ohio Star and his conversation with Ohio Republican Party Central Committeeman Mark A. Bainbridge about his takeaways from the meeting. Bainbridge said that Party Chairman Bob Paduchik controls the party in the service of DeWine, and claims that the chairman corruptly manages the party and its finances.
