Republicans in Allen County gathered at the Knights of Columbus in Lima to spread one message, get out and vote.

Ohio Republican Party Chair, Jane Timken, and the National Republican Party Deputy Co-Chair Bob Paduchik made appearances to fire up the crowd on Thursday.

Paduchik and Timken were last minute adds to the get out and vote rally as original guests Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle were unable to make it due to Hurricane Michael.

"That shows the importance of Allen County," said Keith Cheney, chairman of the Allen County Republican party. "I was simply gratified that they were able to come and their message was very much on target if you like a strong economy if you like things that are happening in Ohio that are positive, in the nation that are positive, then vote Republican."

Timken came out and got the sold-out rally cheering when she said Republicans need to make sure the Democrats get a big fat disappointment this election. 

Paduchik, a native of Akron, Ohio, focused more on the big picture and what Republicans have accomplished with Donald Trump in the White House. He said if you are a Republican you have to be ecstatic with what he’s done. Paduchik touched on unemployment being at a record low and how Trump’s administration has undone everything Barack Obama’s administration had done. He closed by saying Allen County will be the difference because power usually switches hands at mid-term elections on capitol hill.

"We tend to focus all our attention on the presidency because of the national media gets and things like that," Matt Huffman said, Republican Senator for Ohio's District 12. "Frankly more policy is made at the state and local level than it’s made in Washington. That’s the way the system’s designed. So don’t sit this one out, especially if you’re a Republican." 

Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle are expected to come for a rescheduled rally on October 23 at UNOH Event Center with more tickets to be sold.
