Following up on the endorsement recap of yesterday, there were a few of the Buckeye RINO-endorsed candidates that won, but many of them lost.
Issue 6 went down to defeat, and I’m very happy about that.
The expected incumbent winners among those endorsed were Bob Latta of Ohio’s 5th Congressional District, and Jeff Wagner of Ohio House District 81.
There were newcomers elected, too.
Huron County elected Larry Silcox over Sharon Ward for an open commissioner seat.
Seneca County replaced long-time incumbent treasurer Marguerite Bernard with Damon Alt.
I never predicted who would win among those I endorsed . . . with one exception. As soon as Matt Barrett stepped down from his seat in Ohio House District 58, I announced that the GOP would win the seat back from the Democrats. I was correct. Terry Boose emerges as the new state rep in the 58th District.
Though most of those I endorsed did not emerge victorious, I don’t regret making any of the endorsements that I made. God bless you all, and God bless America.
