This year, we have seen the health of the Republican Party in Cincinnati, in Ohio and in the region with:
- The stunning March defeat of Representative Jean Schmidt, a pox on the GOP at home and in D.C., our "most corrupt" representative.
- The rejection and replacement of Kevin DeWine as Ohjo GOP Chairman.
- And now, the coming defeat Tuesday of Senator Dick Lugar in Indiana.
- We can only hope that in June, Utah voters are equally principled and informed in replacing Orrin Hatch.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you grow a healthy, vibrant, successful party.
