>Huge crowd for Republican Pig Roast


The annual Republican Pig Roast was held Sunday and was attended by a crowd of hundreds – maybe thousands. Several candidates appeared in person to speak to the crowd including Richard Adams, Dave Yost, Mike DeWine, Bill Beagle, Maureen O’Connor, Judith Lanzinger, and a handful of unopposed candidates. Cindy Pike won the award for Republican of the Year.

And it was announced that John Kasich would be in Greenville on Tuesday, October 19th at 5:45 p.m., at the Republican HQ (301 S. Broadway, next to the post office on the circle).

    >Lets go Darke County. Another no-show by John Boehner. He was probably too busy shinning his new speaker of the house gavel. John Boehner, does not have to be a shoo-in for this job. Heck he's not even trying. I say we deserve better. Its time for John to go to work for K street, not us.

    >Anon. 1:44 Maybe DJ protecting his advertising dollars? He sure protects Mike Stegal. DJ may be under pressure.

    >Smith and Niley could have advertised here. I would have gladly taken their money, or even some free pizza. They apparently chose to advertise elsewhere.As far as protecting Stegall, I was at the Republican event and covered it. I don't attend the democrat event. If somebody wants to cover it and send it here, then go for it!No pressure here!

    >You two Anoy's dont get it. I'm telling you John Boehner doesn't give a crap about us here in the 8th district. Yeah he helps get a couple of grants for the local fire departments. ( I only say this because some yahoo would cite this as Boehner caring about us.) In reality JOHN MIGHT HAVE HAD GOOD INTENTIONS WHEN HE WENT TO WASHINGTON BUT ITS TOO LATE FOR HIM NOW. He has went national and that is the worst thing that can happen for us. John Boehner CAN be defeated, no matter how much he spends. We Darke countians need to realize that voting for the same old, same old no longer applies. Forget the past, he NEEDS TO GO PERIOD!

    >So, Bruce, Congressman boehner is on the brink of becoming Speaker of the House, third in line for the Presidency. And you want to replace him with some new guy who will start at the bottom of the House? Is there not prestige for Ohio that we have the Speaker? Exactly what did you want from him? Did you want more "pork" for Darke County? and who pays for the pork? taxpayers, that's who.

    >Prestige for Ohio! Your are the second person who has accused me of wanting pork, so lets get this straight. I want John Boehner out because he has been in Washington so long he has forgotten that he represents us, here, the 8th district of Ohio. Not the United States of America. Does Obama bring prestige to Ill., Hawaii or where-ever he comes from? John Boehner is a broken record, with no new or fresh ideas for the direction of this country. As for the new guy starting at the bottom of the House, after Nov. 2nd there will be a lot of them. I've viewed his web page and I find him impressive and fresh, though kind of young. Go to this web page and read everything you've ever wanted to know about John Boehner's voting record. Dont forget to note the number of missed votes, (8.6% so far this year alone)./http://projects.washingtonpost.com/congress/members/b000589
