After taking a look at John Kasich’s Recharge Ohio calendar, it looks like he is speaking at three GOP County events over the next two weeks, starting with one Lincoln Day dinner in Kenton, Ohio tonight.
With the Draft John movement bursting at the seams, I’d love to get reports from my readers about how John is being received at these events, and any other details you can provide.
From what I’ve heard, John has been getting record crowds at each Lincoln Day dinner he has attended over the past 15 months, including a whopping 425 at the event in Gov. Strickland’s hometown of Scioto County. For the uninitiated, in the past 425 attendees would be considered a vast success at even the biggest Ohio county Lincoln Day dinners. These dinners are fundraisers for the County Party in which they are hosted, and have given Kasich a chance to not only reach out to thousands upon thousands of GOP activists ready to hit the ground running when he announces, but also put untold amounts into GOP coffers throughout the state.
So, if you attend the upcoming dinners in Hardin, Jefferson or Richland counties, shoot me an e-mail at djtables[email protected] and we’ll post it here on the blog. Thanks!
