Political power emerged for Putnam County’s Republicans on Tuesday night when they held their Lincoln Reagan dinner.
Congressman Bob Latta, Ohio Chartered Accountant Keith Faber, and current and past leaders of the Ohio Republican Party were present. Former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was the main speaker for the evening. Walker is known for surviving a 2012 recall election before winning his second term. Walker had launched a campaign for the Republican president nomination in 2016, but withdrew after just a few months. At dinner he talked about reaching out to the youth to expand the party.
Scott Walker, former Republican governor of Wisconsin, said, “If we look forward to a state like Ohio or Wisconsin that I’m from, these are major battlefield states, and if conservatives win in the future, it starts with young people . “
Walker is currently the president of the Young America’s Foundation, a group for conservative youth.
