Stop talking and start doing – You only need 5 signatures to run for State Central Committee

“Like most other conservatives, Americans, and Ohioans, I was elated when I heard the news that John Boehner would be resigning. While I thank the speaker for his years of service, I think this news speaks volumes about the state of Washington DC, the GOP, and conservatism generally.
