With the Republican National Convention to be held in Ohio next year, John Kasich running for president, and a big primary on the horizon in March; Ohio is going to be a political hot bed for the next several months. That was the message at Monday night’s Hancock County Republican Party fall dinner. Chris McNulty, the director of community and political affairs for the 2016 Republican National Convention, was the guest speaker.
McNulty told those on hand that the biggest challenge is getting people to the polls. He said many people won’t admit they aren’t registered to vote. McNulty added if Republicans want to see success, they’ll have to do better in encouraging people to get involved.
McNulty also talked about the importance of Cleveland hosting the Republican convention. He said the city sometimes has a negative perception from outsiders. He believes they will be pleasantly surprised when they see what Cleveland has to offer. McNulty added that Cleveland and the Republican party have similarities in they they both, “want to re-tell their stories.”
