OHIO TEA PARTY CELEBRATES ELECTION WINS


Akron, OH: Tonight, Tom Zawistowski, President of the TEA Party affiliated We the People Convention, commented on how the Ohio TEA Party movement views the 2018 Ohio General Election Results. Zawistowski said, “I want to congratulate all the grassroots volunteer for doing such a terrific job this election. It is their investment of time and effort that made the majority of these wins possible. We also thank all the candidates we endorsed, on our www.OhioESlateCard.com, who worked so hard to win their individual races. As predicted, there was no sign of a “Blue Wave" in Ohio, as Republicans dominated in all the state races, all the US House races, in the Ohio House and the Ohio Senate. Even the US Senate race was within reach, as our polling suggested, but we just could not quite make up for all of the $20 million spending gap with our outstanding effort. The bottom line is that we met two of our three main goals for this election - we defended all 12 Ohio Republican Congressional seats and we protected the integrity of voting in Ohio by electing Frank LaRose as Secretary of State. We were also glad that State Issue 1 was soundly defeated. We had a very good night and we are celebrating.”  

Zawistowski concluded, “At the national level, we are pleased that it looks like Republicans will increase their hold on the US Senate. This certainly bodes well for what we hope will be at least one more Supreme Court nominee. While we are holding out hope that the Republican’s can keep control of the US House, it looks doubtful that can happen which is certainly a disappointment to us and a real tragedy for our nation.”
