The Southwest Ohio Republican Party Chairmen Challenge

Will your county be the champion?



1st Place



2nd Place



3rd Place



4th Place



2018 is a very important election. For Ohio to stay red, Southwest Ohio needs to turn out big. We are the Red Wall that protects Ohio from that Blue Wave.

In response, four big Southwest Ohio Republican Party Chairmen - Jeff Monroe in Warren County, Alex Triantafilou in Hamilton County, Todd Hall in Butler County and Greg Simpson in Clermont County - have laid down a major challenge to each other over the next seven weeks.

These four chairmen are pitting against each other to see which county can do the most voter contacts through the Ohio Republican Party Advantage system. Door to door voter visits and phone calls.

Any GOP Chairman that would like to join the challenge is welcome. Each Friday we will share the results to see who is getting it done!

Join the team on Facebook for updates on the Challenge. The Chairmen and Candidates will be sharing what they are doing on the groud.

Here is how you can get involved, help all of our Republican Candidates, and take your county GOP to victory in the first SW Ohio Chairmen Challenge!

How to get involved!

Contact your county's Ohio Republican Party Field Organizer (see below). Your Field Organizer will give you a login to our Advantage System and a bit of training on how to use it. This is a computer, tablet or cell phone app system. Any device will work. It is 100% private and computer-based. No one will ever see your phone number.

Make Contacts from home or from one of the GOP Offices: With this login, you can make phone calls at one of our phone banks or make calls from home. The login is also used to go door to door. You can meet up at one of our door to door organizing locations or you can go door to door on your own time in your neighborhood.

For the challenge, each door is equivalent to 6 phone calls. Knocking on a door is more time consuming and makes more of an impact. So we are weighting phones to door - 6 to 1 in the scoring.

Get involved. Make a difference and elect our Republican candidates. Share this challenge on Facebook or anywhere online with your friends.

Persistence over Resistance.

We have to win this election!  They have already declared that they will take the House. We must vote RED in November, and no matter what the sacrifice, we must gather others to join us.

Change of Meeting Place for October!  We are hoping to gather as many people as possible to listen to and be inspired by Tom Z. There's a lot of information we know absolutely nothing about that is just waiting to fill our minds. Please ask all your friends to come along. We know they won't be disappointed. Hopefully, through this meeting we can get out many more voters!!



Though we don't know what subjects he'll bring up when he comes, here are some issues Tom could discuss with us:

- Our Top Goals for the 2018 Election

- The Ohio Slate Card Controversy

- Where We Stand Right Now in the Elections

-The Legal Action Sessions is Exploring against Social Media

- The Association between Bob Woodward and the FBI

EmpowerU Presents – School Choice in Ohio

When: Tuesday, October 9, 2018. 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Where: EmpowerU Studio at Frame USA. 225 Northland Blvd Cincinnati, Ohio 45246


The School Choice movement in Ohio seeks to allow parents to locate the best  environment for a child to learn, grow and succeed.  A growing coalition of families, educators, legislators and experts are banding together in Ohio intending to unleash each child’s potential from a “one size fits all” educational system where a zip code is the only factor determining where and how a student is educated. Ohio needs to have high quality options for parents to choose from: whether that’s public, private, charter, online, or home education, Ohio should be a state that provides educational opportunities that are as diverse as our population.
