The Allen County Republicans hosted candidates for a push rally just one day before election day.

State-level candidates Jon Husted, Robert Sprague, Mary DeGenaro as well as several local candidates were at the rally, talking about some of the issues that are being seen both state-wide and locally. Sen. Rob Portman was also there to talk with voters and the candidates; the Senator says that he's pleased with how the county has already had a big turnout for this year's election.

"I just talked to the chairman here and he said the early voting was very good in this county - Allen County is a good Republican county - and so was the absentee voter program," said Sen. Portman. "I’m hopeful that people will come out and vote, and if we do that I think will be okay. It is important and I think that the turnout of this midterm may be comparable to what you see in a presidential election."

One speaker was candidate Jon Husted, who spoke about what he and running partner Mike DeWine would bring to the state.

"Mike DeWine and I want to take Ohio to the next level; we want to continue to grow the economy, make Ohio and economic powerhouse of the Midwest, we don’t want go back to the taxes and spending days of Richard Cordray - we want to go forward with the prosperity plan that Mike DeWine and Jon Husted offer," Husted said.

Husted is on the Republican ticket for governor with Mike DeWine.
