The conservative Committee for a Better Ohio grassroots organization pushed backon Ohio GOP Party Chair Bob Paduchik’s recent calling the nonprofit public policy organization a “dark money” group set on undermining the party.
The characterization came during an occasionally raucous Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee meeting where members seeking to reform to the management and policies were unable to get financial and management issues discussed.
Reform-minded members of the Ohio Republican Party’s State Central Committee held a press conference outside the Governor’s Mansion east of downtown Columbus on Tuesday to push for ending endorsements in primary races and unchecked financial support of incumbent officeholders.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Members of the Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee (SCC) are scheduled to meet Friday to determine if the party will censure Republican lawmakers who voted in January to impeach President Trump, elect two State Central Committee Members, and to vote on an initiative that would extend the term limit from two years to four.
According to one central committee member the initial intent was to censure U.S. Congressman Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH-16) for his impeachment vote but the effort has been “watered down” to include broader language that shifts the focus from Gonzalez and includes all GOP lawmakers who voted to impeach.
