    Kasich keeps Ohio’s 66 delegates from Trump

    Most average voters are unaware of this, but in Ohio’s primary on March 15th, we won’t just be nominating candidates for the GOP ticket in November’s races. We’ll also be choosing who makes up the State Central Committee for the Ohio Republican Party. There is a man and a woman elected in each of...
