Cleveland, OH - Belmont County Republican Party Chairman Christopher Gagin endorsed conservative outsider Mike Gibbons for the U.S. Senate today. The endorsement follows Gibbons winning the endorsement of the Franklin County Republican Party in an overwhelming vote last night.
"Voters are demanding the very qualities Mike Gibbons offers," Gagin said. "A strong, principled, self-made entrepreneur, and conservative who has created jobs and understands the challenges facing Ohio and the United States in the broader world. I trust Mike to add his voice on Ohio's behalf on the issues that matter most to Ohioans: Tax reform, the repeal of Obamacare, the opioid epidemic, illegal immigration, international trade and America's role in a dangerous world."
Gagin continued, "I strongly believe that Mike Gibbons is the right Republican to challenge and defeat Sen. Brown on the merits of his failed liberal agenda."
Gagin is the second County Republican Chairman to announce his support for Gibbons. Seneca County GOP Chair Jim Roberts endorsed Gibbons last week.
