ORP State Central Committee Resolution to Censure Matt Borges

Put forth by Sarah Brown, Committeewoman from the 29th-District and adopted unanimously 

Whereas: Former Ohio Republican Party Chairman Matt Borges has conducted himself in a manner which calls into question his dedication to Republican Principles in the following acts:

  • As State Chairman, he committed FEC violations which cost the state party time, treasury, and reputation.
  • Upon being defeated as State Party Chairman he put himself out to promote an initiative to legalize marijuana in Ohio;
  • Upon being defeated as State Party Chairman he put himself out to lead a Super Pac to benefit the nomination of Joe Biden as Democrat Nominee for President;
  • Upon being defeated as State Party Chairman he now leads a Super Pac aimed at defeating the Republican Nominee for President.
Therefore, be it Resolved that the Ohio Republican Party State Central Committee hereby formally disassociates itself from Mr. Borges and otherwise revokes the titIe of Chairman Emeritus that had been granted Mr. Borges upon his defeat as Republican State Chairman. We take this action on account of Mr. Borges’ misconduct and pattern of using his former status as Ohio Republican Chairman to advocate for proposals which had not been endorsed by The Ohio Republican State Central Committee.

By Recorded Roll Call Vote of the Ohio Republican State Central Committee, on this day, June 19th, 2020.

ed. note:  Borges, who served as ORP chair to Jan. 2017, founded Right Side PAC in June 2020.

Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.
July 31, 2020


Ahead of President Trump's Keep America Great rally in Cincinnati, Ohio, Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. and the Republican National Committee (RNC) today announced their respective Ohio leadership teams, which will win the Buckeye State once again for President Trump and Republicans up and down the ballot. The RNC's Ohio team includes a regional political director, a state director, and a senior advisor. The Trump campaign team includes a host of Trump honorary state chairs. President Trump will host a Keep America Great rally on August 1, 2019 at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati.

"In 2016, President Trump won Ohio commandingly and 2020 will be another great year for the President and all Republicans in Ohio," said Brad Parscale, Campaign Manager of Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. and Ronna McDaniel, Chairwoman of the RNC, in a joint statement. "In 2016, President Trump made promises to the great men and women of Ohio, and in 2020, President Trump returns to Ohio with clear, concrete successes. Our Ohio leadership team will spread the good news of the Trump presidency and the benefit of Republican policies across the Buckeye State with an unstoppable team of trained volunteers helping to cement a 2020 victory."

President Trump's pro-growth, low-tax policies have put a fire under Ohio's economy, adding 92,800 jobs overall and 18,900 manufacturing jobs since President Trump's election. The state unemployment rate has fallen more than a percentage point - from 5.2% to 4.0% - a vivid contrast form President Obama's 11.1% unemployment rate high. As paychecks continue to grow, the average family in Ohio has received $1,476 in tax cuts. Additionally, 209,138 Americans have been lifted off food stamps and given access to the American dream.

In addition to the soaring Trump economy, The Trump Ohio team will share the President's clear record of accomplishments:

  • Increasing paychecks by thousands of dollars through tax cuts and wage growth.
  • Creating more than 5 million jobs nationally.
  • Expanding healthcare choice, providing millions of Americans with access to more affordable short-term, limited duration plans.
  • Controlling healthcare costs, as the average exchange premium will go down this year after skyrocketing in cost year-after-year because of Obamacare.
  • Reducing prescription drug costs .. with prices dropping for the first time in half a century
  • Putting America first in our trade deals and protecting American jobs while also opening new markets and expanding existing ones.
  • Protecting our border and enforcing immigration laws, in contrast to Democrats who call for open borders.
