County executive endorses candidate

AKRON - Summit County Executive James B. McCarthy has endorsed candidate Gregg Cramer of Fairlawn in the Democratic primary race for state representative from the 41st House District.

Cramer is running against Clark Hosick and Brian Williams, both of Akron.

In late January, Summit Co. Executive James McCarthy issued a legally and Constitutionally-questionable executive order banning firearms (even openly-carried) from "all county buildings and vehicles and on county property." McCarthy said he wants there to be no doubt in anyone's mind: Leave your guns at home if you're heading for a county building.

McCarthy's endorsement of Gregg Cramer begs a question which all Democrats who care about the right to bear arms and right to self-defense need to be asking: The friend of mine enemy is my...?

The OFCC PAC knows the answer, and has endorsed Clark Hosick in the Democrat primary for the 41st Ohio House. In his OFCC PAC Candidate Survey, Hosick expressed strong support for concealed carry, and supports ideas to "reform the reform law".
