From the Libertarian Party of Ohio:
The Libertarian Party of Ohio is proud to announce its endorsement of Chad Monnin, candidate for Ohio House of Representatives, District 19.
Monnin has been a life member of the Libertarian Party of Ohio since 2010, and his campaign represents the best chance that a Libertarian will be elected to a state office this year.
A 12-year Army Veteran and business owner, Monnin has committed at least $250,000 to his own campaign to represent the cities of Gahanna, Westerville, and New Albany (and surrounding areas).
The Monnin campaign has become aware of a recent poll that showed him in a closely contested race against a Democrat and an incumbent Republican—so this is definitely a winnable race.
Monnin’s race has already garnered attention from the Columbus Dispatch, which has printed articles about the unsuccessful attempt by the Republican Party to remove him from the ballot (similar to the Charlie Earl case, which is still pending in federal court) and to convince him to withdraw from the race.
“I’m running because Ohio voters deserve a real choice when they choose their representatives, and I’m giving them an opportunity to vote for someone who will work to cut spending, cut taxes, and get government out of their lives,” says Monnin, who is a vocal opponent of Common Core and other unconstitutional federal incursions against Ohio’s sovereignty.
