Conservatives nationwide have stood up to call for a return to our constitutional principles and increased fiscal responsibility.

Wait a second, no he didn't.
When NEWS9 contacted Redfern for an explanation of his comment, he was under the impression that the endorsement announcement was a private event.Chairman Redfern owes an apology not just to those he intended to insult, but to all Ohioans. Redfern was chosen by his peers to represent the highest level of Party power. He should be held to higher standard - one promised by Democratic elected officials.
Redfern also said he saw both the NEWS9 reporter and videographer, but did not see the reporter holding a microphone and assumed his comments were not being recorded.

But that's no excuse.
