Local Races 2008

It would be impossible to research every local race in the state of Ohio. But there are some contests which pique our interest, some because they are between pro-Second Amendment candidates and out-and-out anti-gunners, and others because we wish to support candidates in positions that could one day lead them to the Statehouse, Governor's mansion, or Supreme Court bench.

In the 2008 election, we ENDORSE the following candidates:

Office Name Party
1st District Court of Appeals Judge Lee Hildebrandt Republican WIN!
2nd District Court of Appeals Judge George Reynolds Republican
Butler Co. Common Pleas Court: Juvenile Div. Tim Evans Republican
Fairfield Co. Sheriff Dave Phalen Republican WIN!
Hamilton Co. Commissioner Greg Hartmann Republican WIN!
Hamilton Co. Common Pleas Judge Russell Mock Republican
Hamilton Co. Clerk of Courts Patti Clancy Republican WIN!
Hamilton Co. Recorder Rebecca Groppe Republican WIN!
Hamilton Co. Treasurer Robert A. Goering Republican WIN!
Marion Co. Treasurer Karyle Mumper Republican
Beaver Creek City Council Luke McKellar Libertarian
