COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An experienced campaigner for former President Donald Trump and top Ohio Republican took the helm of the state party Friday, pledging to strengthen the party’s performance in Democrat-heavy urban counties headed into the 2022 elections. Trump endorsed Bob Paduchik over a far-right challenger to succeed Ohio Republican Party Chair Jane Timken, who resigned to run for U.S. Senate. He called the man who ran his successful 2016 and 2020 campaigns in the state “outstanding in every way.” Trump won Ohio both times by more than 8 percentage points. But Paduchik’s challenger for the party’s top job, former state Rep. John Becker, cast him as an establishment-backing insider saddled with too much baggage. “I’m the regular guy,” Becker told State Central Committee members in a meeting held jointly in person and online. “I don’t have extensive tentacles with family members and multiple organizations and multiple campaigns going back to the beginning of time.” Becker … [Read more...] about Trump-Backed Candidate Bob Paduchik Tapped To Head Ohio Republican Party

WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump on Monday (Jun 1) said he was deploying thousands of "heavily armed" soldiers and police to prevent further protests in Washington, where buildings and monuments have been vandalised near the White House. "What happened in the city last night was a total disgrace," he said during a nationwide address as tear gas went off and crowds protested in the streets nearby. "I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults and the wanton destruction of property." He denounced "acts of domestic terror" after nationwide protests against the death of an unarmed African American George Floyd in police custody devolved into days of violent race riots across the country. "I want the organisers of this terror to be on notice that you will face severe criminal penalties and a lengthy sentence in jail," Trump said as police could be … [Read more...] about Trump announces plan to send ‘thousands’ of troops, police to US capital’s streets
In a matter of days this country will face an extraordinary Senate trial. The Senate not only will try a president for a second time but will do so after he has left office. Kamala Harris has assured us the Senate can “multitask” to deal with an impeachment, a new administration, and a pandemic. But the issue is if this is a task of the Constitution and, for soon to be citizen Donald Trump Donald Trump Noem touts South Dakota coronavirus response, knocks lockdowns in CPAC speech On The Trail: Cuomo and Newsom — a story of two embattled governors McCarthy: 'I would bet my house' GOP takes back lower chamber in 2022 MORE , the best defense could be no defense at all. In fairness, people on both sides are having a hard time with this novel impeachment.
