Ohio GOP eyes Lake County?

Columbus-based Ohio House of Representatives Minority Leader Bill Batchelder, R-Medina, is certainly making his rounds around Ohio as Republican candidates vie for election to two-year terms as state legislators.

If the Grand Ole Party retains its current seats, it’s only four or five such offices away from Democrats as the current House majority party in a General Assembly wherein the GOP is the Ohio Senate majority.

So no surprise that the GOP’s Batchelder will headline a Lake County fundraiser on May 24.

That will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Patrician Party Center in Eastlake for Willoughby Hills Councilman David Fiebig, the Republican candidate for the House seat in the 62nd District.

In November, it will Fiebig vs. state Rep. Lorraine Fende, D-Willowick, in a district spanning all western Lake County and Concord Township in the east side of the county.

Normally, a fundie for a state legislative candidate is local supporters and not always with a headliner like Batchelder capturing attention as he has already in other counties in Ohio.

Democrat Fende? Don’t worry. She’s had her share of statewide well-knowns, and will again.

Fiebig can not raise the money to beat Fende. It will take TV adds and a lot of paid media to beat Fende. Where will fiebig get the money? Grass roots won't win this one.
