Ayotte, Mandel and Greek cuisine on tap for local GOP

Oct 18, 2012

Hamilton County Republicans have a raft of get-out-the-vote events scheduled over the next week, involving everything from visits from high-profile GOP senators to a night of Greek cuisine at a Republican volunteer call center.

On Saturday, Sen. Kelly Ayotte – who was considered a contender for the GOP vice presidential nomination this year – will headline a “Republicans Top to Bottom” rally at the Sharonville Convention Center.

Doors will open at 10 a.m. for the rally, which is sponsored by the Northeast Hamilton County Republican Club. The program begins at 11 a.m.

Three days later, on Tuesday night, Josh Mandel – the state treasurer who is challenging incumbent Democrat Sherrod Brown in Ohio’s U.S. Senate race – will be joined by two high-profile Republican senators – John Thune of South Dakota and Jim DeMint of South Carolina.

The Cincinnati Tea Party-sponsored event begins at the Sharonville Convention Center at 8 p.m.; and those who wish to attend are asked to send an e-mail to Rally@CincinnatiTeaParty.org.

Wednesday night is “Greek night” at the GOP’s Westwood call center at 2300 Montana Avenue. Volunteers will be served Greek cuisine. Hamilton County GOP chairman Alex Triantafilou – a Greek American  - and Hamilton County commissioner Chris Monzel will be on hand.
