The Christmas season is upon us, many of our friends are currently celebrating Hanukkah and a new year is about to begin.

LaRose Addresses the Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee

Just a few days ago, Frank had the opportunity to address the State Central Committee of the Ohio Republican Party, which serves as the governing body of the Republican Party statewide. Frank spoke about his background and the resume of service which makes him clearly the most qualified candidate for Secretary of State. He told the committee about the hard work he and Lauren are putting in on the campaign trail, along with our campaign staff and volunteers to earn a win. Frank made the clear case that as the Republican nominee for this important office he will assure that we keep one of our own in the office of Secretary of State. Frank has been endorsed by an overwhelming majority of the State Central Committee members. We look forward to working with them, as a team, to ensure victory in November.

Recently, Frank reached another important milestone on the campaign trail. He has traveled across Ohio, and campaigned in all 88 counties.
