Wenstrup begins campaign

GEORGETOWN — U.S. Representative Brad Wenstrup announced his candidacy for reelection to the U.S. House of Representatives in Ohio’s second district on Saturday, October 3, at a trio of events within the district.

At one of the events, Wenstrup met with constiuents at the Republican booth in the Brown County Fair. He answered personal questions during a short one-on-one session before addressing a crowd of onlookers and discussing big news topics such as the ongoing civil war in Syria, the Iran nuclear treaty, the Republican-backed push to remove federal funding from Planned Parenthood, and the potential of rising interest rates in the future.

Wenstrup however did not have any answers to who would be the next Speaker of the House. Currently, Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Jason Chaffetz (R-UT).

“I’m proud to represent this area, we have a great area of the country with people who want to work, and that makes a big difference,” Wenstrup said. “It’s nice to know people have your back when you’re up there (in Washington D.C.) fighting those fights.”

Wenstrup, who won election to the House of Representatives in 2012 and 2014, will be on the ballot in 2016, as all members of the House of Representatives serve two-year terms.

According to Wenstrup’s campaign, the congressman picked up more than 180 endorsements and $550,000 cash-on-hand from across the district, including from 12 people in Brown County. Those include Brown County Commissioners Daryll Gray, Barry Woodruff, and Tony Applegate, Brown County Clerk of Courts Clark Gray, Brown County Auditor Jill Hall, Brown County Treasurer Connie Patrick, Brown County Recorder Amy DeClaire, Brown County Prosecuting Attorney Jessica Little, Republican Central Committee members Jim Hile, Jesse Millikan, and Roxanne Malone, and former Ripley Mayor David Gray.

Little has been appointed by Wenstrup’s campaign to serve as the local county campaign chair.

“I’m excited to begin my campaign today with the encouragement and help of so many friends and supporters. I’m grateful for their support and for their confidence in me,” Wenstrup said in a statement. “To serve my fellow citizens is a humbling responsibility, and a duty to which I am completely dedicated.”

After meeting with constituents, Wenstrup headed over to the Senior Fair Board office, where he presented Fair Board President Orville Whalen with a U.S. flag that had flown over the U.S. Capitol, and then later he presented a $100 check to the Junior Fair Board for their displays of patriotism.
