The Becker Report – February 2021
Congratulations to Bob Paduchik!
Bob Paduchik won the election to become Chairman of the Ohio Republican Party. He earned the support of a large majority of the 66 members of the State Central Committee.
I had a full week to reach out to those 66 members and solicit their vote for a grassroots Trump Republican. I had a lot of very good conversations. Although one or two were a bit contentious, all were polite and courteous. That speaks to the professionalism of the organization.
The acting chairman and staff were always attentive to my requests for information. Although I would have preferred a public Q&A between Mr. Paduchik and me, I can’t imagine how the process could have been any more open, transparent, or fair. I was given the opportunity and I came up short. I did my best and have no regrets or complaints.
I’d also like to thank the many supporters who reached out to the members of the committee on my behalf. Your voices were heard and counted. Your actions were truly an organic grassroots effort. I am impressed and thankful for your support.
Governor DeWine’s Polling Results (Registered Republicans Only)
When I addressed the Ohio Republican Party’s members of the State Central Committee, I mentioned a December 2020 scientific poll of registered Ohio Republicans. The numbers are devastating to Governor DeWine.
A sampling are as follows:
- Generally speaking, would you say that things in Ohio are heading in the right direction or are they off on the wrong track?
- Wrong track was selected by 72 percent of Ohio’s registered Republicans.
- Do you approve or disapprove of the job Mike DeWine is doing as governor?
- Disapprove was selected by 75 percent.
- Do you approve or disapprove of the way Mike DeWine is responding to the coronavirus?
- Disapprove was selected by 78 percent.
- Do you believe Mike DeWine’s stay-at-home orders and restrictions on businesses are effective at preventing the spread of coronavirus?
- Disapprove was selected by 85 percent.
- Do you approve or disapprove of the way Mike DeWine is handling Ohio’s economy?
- Disapprove was selected by 76 percent.
- How confident are you in Mike DeWine’s ability to lead Ohio toward economic recovery?
- Very not confident was selected by 66 percent.
- Somewhat not confident was selected by an additional 14 percent.
It was during the Gulf War in 1990 that I became a fan of AM radio. That was also the same time that I began listening to Rush Limbaugh and other conservative talk radio hosts. It was refreshing and affirming to listen to somebody who thought the same way I did. I bought his books and his ties and remained a Rush Limbaugh fan through the very end. He is and will continue to be missed by millions. RIP, Rush Limbaugh.
Private Citizen Affidavits (PCAs)
The September and October 2020 editions of The Becker Report explains much of the detail. The 25 counties that I know of where PCAs have been filed or delivered per ORC 2935.09(D) are: Adams, Allen, Ashtabula, Belmont. Brown, Butler, Clermont, Franklin, Greene, Hamilton, Hancock, Highland, Lake, Licking, Lorain, Marion, Miami, Montgomery, Pickaway, Richland, Summit, Union, Warren, Washington, and Wood Counties. Only 63 more to go!
The purpose of these is to seek out a judge or prosecutor willing to perform his clear legal duty as described in ORC 2935.10(A) and either issue an arrest warrant or launch an investigation into the charges outlined in the PCA against Governor DeWine.
