The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the tea party has taken control of the Warren County Republican Party winning 12 leadership spots at the June 10th re-organizational meeting.  An “alliance” between conservatives and tea party members made way for the takeover.

Five tea party candidates won leadership positions including the party’s new chairman, Ray Warrick.  Another seven tea party members were elected to the executive, central, and at-large committees.

The Enquirer points out that Warren County is key to GOP success in gubernatorial and presidential races in Ohio as it is heavily Republican.
