Ohio TEA Party Groups Align With NRA To Elect Trump
Buckeye Bureau Chief Gerry Manders says he once again checked the e-mail update from the Ohio GOP to find out what’s happening in Republican politics in Ohio today. There was all that news about Ohio’s Republican governor, Ohio’s Republican U.S. Senator, Ohio’s Republican Attorney General, and Ohio’s Republican Treasurer, but curiously, there was no mention of Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Mike Pence’s 7 PM Rally in Lima tomorrow at the University of Northwestern Ohio Events Center.
In a related item, also not included in the Ohio GOP e-mail, Ohio TEA Party Guy Tom Zawistowski says the TEA Party/Liberty Groups in Ohio will be aligning with the National Rifle Association to elect Donald Trump as the next President of the United States.
“Our members will make phone calls and knock on doors through the NRA’s Political Victory Fund,” Zawistowski explained. “This decision to align with the NRA was made for two important reasons.
“First, we needed to align with an organization that we could trust and that would respect the value of the volunteer effort we bring to the election. I am confident that the NRA is a trustworthy partner who will respect our volunteers as true partners.
“Second, there are possible concerns about the resources that the Ohio Republican Party will commit to supporting Trump, based on Governor Kasich’s refusal to attend the Convention in Cleveland let alone endorse Trump.
“Taking these factors into consideration, we had to find a partner that has no questions about supporting Trump’s election and the NRA has proven that commitment. This year’s combined effort will bring significant grassroots resources to bear on the mutual goal of ensuring Hillary Clinton is defeated and Donald Trump is our next President.”
In 2012 members of TEA Party/Liberty Groups made over 75% of the calls and 75% of the door knocks for the Romney Campaign in Ohio.
“Any group interested in lending a hand should contact us at TomZ@WethePeopleConvention.org, for information on how to contact NRA staff in their specific geographic region. They will personally setup and train staff to make phone calls or set you up and train your members over the phone so you can start making calls immediately. We will also hold a one-day state meeting in August to organize other efforts in support of Trump. We will notify all the leaders in the state concerning that event within the next week,” Zawistowski concluded.
Meanwhile, Cleveland.com reports “John Kasich says he doesn’t know who he’s voting for president,” along with showing us this video.
