In Hillsboro on Wednesday for the Highland County Republican Party’s annual Lincoln Day Dinner, newly elected Ohio Republican Party chairman Alex Triantafilou spoke about his optimistic outlook for the party’s future.
Triantafilou claims that one of his main objectives for the party is to unseat President Joe Biden and U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH).
They will defeat these Democratic politicians in the 2024 election and elect strong conservative leaders to Washington, the chairman claimed, due to the state-wide Republican Party’s strong ideals and values.
After dinner, Triantafilou talked about upcoming plans for the party saying, “
our party is strong because of the principles and values that run deep in communities across Ohio, including right here in Highland County.”
The Highland County Republican Party received praise from him as well for their vital work in preparation for the 2024 election season. He also urged the party to pick a candidate for Ohio’s U.S. Senate seat and take part in the primary elections.
In 2024, Brown plans to run for reelection, and Triantafilou wants a potential Republican challenger to take his seat.
While not formally declaring his candidacy, Biden has stated that he plans to seek re-election in 2024. Additionally, three Republican candidates have declared their intentions to run for president, including former president Donald Trump, former governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley, and Ohio native businessman Vivek Ramaswamy.
Triantafilou expressed hope Biden’s replacement is a conservative. “I look forward to working with each and every one of you to defeat Joe Biden and send another strong conservative to fight alongside J.D. Vance in the U.S. Senate,” he said.
These initiatives align with the aims Triantafilou announced after being elected chairman on January 6. As he announced, “I will do everything in my power to advance the cause of the Republican Party in Ohio for victory. That’s what it’s all about.”
In addition to serving as Hamilton County’s prosecutor and a judge on two courts, Triantafilou has served as the Republican Party’s chairman in Hamilton County since 2008. He was the vice-chairman of the 2004 Bush-Cheney campaign before becoming a judge and previously served as both the president and a member of the Republican executive and judicial screening committees.
