AP: Bennett re-elected as Ohio GOP chief

The Ohio Republican Party - fresh off a third straight sweep of statewide offices - has re-elected Chairman Robert Bennett to an eighth two-year term.

The party's state central and executive committee gave Bennett its endorsement on Sunday. Last month, Bennett said he would seek another term, two years after saying that term might be his last.

Bennett, 63, has been chairman since 1988 and has presided over the GOP takeover of Ohio's statewide elected offices.

On Nov. 5, his entire slate of statewide candidates was elected, led by Gov. Bob Taft, who won a second term.

Bennett, an attorney, said state and national Republicans persuaded him to stay on for President Bush's expected re-election campaign next year.
