The new Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee

Folks, here is a complete list of who the new committee will include after Tuesday's elections. It has come to my attention that even some members of the press are having a hard time finding the complete results.

Funny, in years past, the secretary of state's website provided results for these races. But not this year. I wonder why...oh wait.  Isn't the current SOS a very close ally of Kevin DeNial?  Hmmm....

I have indicated incumbents and unopposed candidates in the updated list:

1 M Frank Guglielmi Unopposed
F Judy Miller Incumbent, beat Angela Snyder
2 M Mark Wagoner Unopposed incumbent
F Dee Talmage Unopposed incumbent
3 M David Goodman Beat Roland Lane (DeWine ally)
F Jo Ann Davidson Unopposed incumbent 
4 M Tim Evans Incumbent, beat Richard Alderson
F Patricia Alderson Beat incumbent Bea Lyons (DeWine ally)
5 M Darryl Mehaffie Incumbent, beat Mark Altier
F Lisa Hays Unopposed incumbent
6 M Pat Flanagan Unopposed incumbent
F Judy Westbrook beat Sharon Lowry
7 M Bob McEwen Unopposed incumbent
F Rebecca Heimlich Raga (DeWine ally) withdrew
8 M Richard Finan Unopposed
F Mary Ann Christie Unopposed
9 M Alex Triantafilou Unopposed incumbent
F Christa Criddle Unopposed incumbent
10 M Kevin DeWine Beat Michael Boerger

32 M Casey O'Brien Incumbent, beat Haberstroh, Law and Pikor
F Melissa Pope Beat incumbent Kathy Creed (DeWine ally)
33 M David Johnson Unopposed
F Tracy Monroe-Winbush Unopposed

Kevin DeWine suffered some major defeats, even as he spent hundreds of thousands of party money on those races to try to keep his own job.

For some other good analysis and further data on the SCC races, be sure to check out this post from GOHP Blog.


  1. Now that is what I call substantiation. I see 24 D's and a whole lot of K's.

    1. I came up with 24 D's, but I was wrong. Closer to 18 D's. I had a few unopposed incumbents on the wrong team.

  2. It's Mark Wagoner, rather than Wagnor in SD 2

  3. So Ohio Joe post the Whip Count!

  4. Ugh, disappointed to see that Dean/Suhadolnik were re-elected--what's up with the folks up here in NE OH--always voting for the same ole, same ole--but then again, we were bombarded virtually daily with mailings from the ORP to vote for these 2 so NE Ohioans probably didn't know anyone else was on the ballot (do your homework people!!!)

  5. Anonymous, I will refrain for now in part from identifying the exact goods guys. First all of, the Chairman reads this web-site and if he know exactly who is against him, he will try to pick a few off. I will say that it looks like only 4 of the 33 Districts (including him own) voted for two pro-chairman candidates. Every other District vote for one or two Pro-Kasich candidates. On a side note, the last I looked, one of our candidates was only winning by a few votes so the list is not final.

  6. There was no list on the SS from the last election either, it has to be piecemealed by county just like this time.

    It find it interesting that The enemy of my enemy is my friend is the new Republican slagan in Ohio.

    Anyone who is please to see Nancy Suhadolnik win and Kathy Johnston and Kay Ayers lose is an idiot. Remember the McFan folks, good people, endorsed Bob Bennett. Now isn't that a hoot.

    1. Yes the SOS did list committee races last time. They're right here:

      And who is happy to see Suhadolnik win? Not us. What are you talking about?
