There has been a lot going on in the last couple of weeks. We had the ASP National Convention where we elected our new Solidarity National Committee and gave them a mandate to focus on fundraising and state party development. At the Convention we had a few great speakers who did a wonderful job, you can watch their talks here.
We also had fellow member of ASP-OH, Shane Hoffman, declare his #whole-life candidacy for Congress in the Ohio 15th. You can find him here. He is challenging the longtime incumbent as a write-in candidate, so he will need all of our help and prayers.
Our Presidential ticket hasn’t been idle either, with both addressing the Convention and Brian Carroll speaking with Daniel Sillman at Christianity Today, you can find the article here. Brian and Amar will be write-in options here in Ohio this November as well as 17 other states, and their names will appear on the ballot as an independent in 7 states. This will be the largest effort on behalf of the American Solidarity Party to elect someone to a federal office. You can follow Brian and Amar here. You can support Brian and Amar directly through their website or by purchasing Yard Signs and more through the store.

The 5th Annual ASP Ohio-Midwest Convention had to be cancelled out of an abundance of caution concerning the COVID-19 public health crisis. While we will miss having everyone come out to beautiful Walnut Creek, we will be having our annual business meeting on Zoom. At this meeting, we will be electing new members for the State Committee and giving a report on the health of the Party in Ohio. I encourage each of you to join us in August, come let us know what you need going into the 2020 General Election and beyond. To be a voting member you will need to fill out a membership form, which has been attached to this email, and make a $15 annual contribution for membership dues. Voting members will receive more information on voting a week before the convention.
