Latest updates from the campaign:
Voter Resources for mail-in ballots due by April 28th, 2020
Hey there everyone, this is Tim. I went ahead and gathered the website and phone numbers for all local board of elections within the 9th district. Ballots are required to be postmarked by April 28th, 2020. This means you need to have requested your ballot, received it, filled it out and sent it back by the 28th. Based on how long it is taking the post office to get these ballots delivered, I highly recommend sending for your ballot no later than April 12th. Even that may be cutting it too close. If you want to be sure your vote is counted, you should order your ballot soon, like last week soon. I know a lot of folks that don't want to participate because of our government's actions, please do not let Columbus strip you of your vote. This may be a pain in the neck, but we have a civic responsibility to ensure the state politicians don't have control over election results, and giving them control over turn-out through suppression gives them control over the results. Send a message to Columbus that you CAN NOT be silenced.
Below you will find the websites and phone numbers to the board of elections in each of the 5 counties in our district. Contact your local county Board of Elections and request your ballot, then send that ballot back to that same Board of Elections by mail.

Ohio's Election Debacle
There is no election day in the Ohio Primary. The state government declared that mail voting be extended to April 28th, 2020 with no other voting time scheduled. So no in person voting at the polls. They are treating March 17th as election day and just extending the time-frame for mail in ballots because they didn't like what Governor Dewine did. We have a bunch of children representing us in the Ohio State government.
Needless to say, this disenfranchises voters across Ohio for a number of reasons.
The integrity of this election is now in question. By people from all over the state, including candidate Tim Connors.
We would have preferred some continuity of government here, some consistency regarding something so important. However that is not what we got. They have changed the election details who knows how many times now.
Given the ineptitude of our state government, we implore you to cast all ballots against incumbents in this Primary, regardless of party. Of course we still want you to vote Tim Connors for US House on your mail in-ballot...if you get it in time, and send it in time. They are taking away our rights and now our free and fair elections? They corrupted the process and cancelled in-person voting. This is dumb, the state Congress is mad at Dewine for fiddling with the election...so they totally cancel in-person voting as a gotcha to the governor? No thank you, this is stupid. Make sure you let your local Rep know how you feel, and how you plan to vote, if you even get to, in this currently ongoing primary election.
For those that don't know, you have to request a ballot by mail before you can have the opportunity to send in a ballot by mail. With the deadline about one month away and the track record of Postal workers, it looks like a whole lot of people will miss the deadline because of how inefficient the mail can be, especially right now, when postal volume is going to create logistical issues. This adds layers of effort to voting that did not exist before, almost ensuring a dramatically reduced turnout.
Ohio, your government just stole your election.
We are going to keep blasting about getting the mail in ballots to people asap, because if you don't request your ballot in time, you wont receive it in time to reach the post mark deadline. So if you plan to vote in this abomination of an election please request your ballot ASAP or you will not be given the chance to vote.

Chinese Virus Relief
Democrats are holding our economy hostage over a bunch of pet projects. This should show all the citizens of Ohio's 9th district just how little Marcy Kaptur cares about you and your family. She would rather you continue to struggle and suffer if it means she can help get the Democrats agenda done. Party loyalty should never come before the needs of the constituency. But for Marcy Kaptur, it seems party loyalty is her paramount concern.
It is moments like this where having someone like Tim Connors in Congress would greatly benefit the people of Ohio's 9th district. Tim has been closely monitoring the situation and talking with people affected by the economic fallout. He believes this can be fixed, but we are working on a time table here. Congress is squandering an opportunity to avoid further crisis for perceived political gain. This shouldn't be a surprise, this is how our Congress has been behaving. It is up to US to vote for candidates that are honest individuals earnestly attempting to solve our nations greatest challenges.
As a small business owner Tim understands the trouble many of us are in, and he understands how to pull out of this. We should elect people like him so that we can rely on our representation during these extreme times. This is not the first national crisis, and it will not be the last. We clearly can not afford to have bad apples in Congress going forward.
Join me in Voting Tim Connors for Congress on June 2nd, 2020. We need people in office that wouldn't treat our people like political footballs. We need someone like Tim that would have fought tooth and nail to get you the help you needed during this time, all while exposing the corruption that politicians try to partake in when big legislation like this come up.

The Wuhan Coronavirus/election postponement
Ohio's Primary election has been postponed. So far it looks like we can expect election day to take place on June 2nd, but things are still uncertain. Folks can still vote at their local board of elections in the meantime. Below is a link to Tim's most recent Facebook post regarding the election.

Comprehensive Candidate Information
Listed below is a comprehensive compilation of information for voters to make an educated decision on March 17th, 2020. Below you will find several links. The first link is the CHIP candidate forum where Tim and 2 other candidates answer questions unscripted (we start at 8mins 50sec in the video). The other 2 video links are to speeches given to the TEA party by Rob Weber and Tim Connors. Then there is a ballotpedia link, that is a comprehensive elections information page where Rob and Tim each have a profile and survey responses. Following that is the ivoterguide info. All of the 9th district republican primary contenders have a profile on ivoterguide and you get a good look at each candidate in comparison there as they all answered the same questions. The links provided will take you to the profiles on those sites for Tim Connors, but getting to the Rob Weber profile is a single click or two away when you're on each site. We would have also loved to provide footage from the UT Democracy Town Hall pseudo-debate from March 5th as well, but have yet to see it or find it. While watching and reading please remember that everything Tim has done on these sites and in these videos is all 100% off the cuff, unrehearsed, organic communication from the heart. Please, take the time to review the information and choose who you think is the best candidate to go against Marcy Kaptur in November. We know not everyone is going to vote for Tim Connors in this primary, but it is our firm belief that the more people that can get a chance to compare candidates, the more likely Tim will achieve Victory on March 17th, 2020.

Ballotpedia has Tim's profile up and survey responses recorded. Below is a link to Tim Connors' Ballotpedia profile, you can also access his opponents profiles and survey responses from the same page, which we HIGHLY encourage folks to do. Get a look at your candidates and tell us which one YOU are voting for and WHY. We want to be sure to note that Tim responded to the complete survey and gave detailed honest responses, and we want you to look at his opponents responses and see the difference for yourself. The ivoterguide profiles are also an intriguing contrast between 9th District candidates. A link to that will be provided as well. We want to encourage everyone to check out all of the information that is out on all of the candidates and make your choice for who should face off with Marcy Kaptur on November 3rd, 2020. We believe that choice will be Tim Connors, do you?

Video of CHIP Forum
The footage of the CHIP forum is now up on Youtube. Watch and tell us which candidate you think did the best. Tim Connors, Rob Weber, and Charles Barrett were all in attendance (in that order when viewing video). Our opinion after the CHIP forum is that the other candidates may be suited to run in Ohio's 4th or 5th districts, but that Tim Connors is the only electable candidate on the Republican ticket for Ohio's 9th district. Remember, the 9th district is majority Democrat, whoever wins this primary needs to be able to earn Democrat votes in November if they are to beat Marcy Kaptur in the general election this November 3rd, 2020. In fact, Independents also outnumber Republicans in the 9th. Republicans are outnumbered by Independents and Democrats by nearly 3:1. We need to nominate a candidate that isn't dead in the water before the election starts. Rob and Charles are established Republican politicians with insider connections. Tim Connors is a young small businessman, a truly independent thinker, and is the fresh blood the Republican party is looking for. He isn't friends with politicians, and has no ties to the swamp-like politics that have gripped many northern Ohio localities. Don't let "good ol' boy" politics cost us another race against Marcy Kaptur. Vote for Tim Connors on March 17th, 2020. Below is a link directly to the video, the 9th District Republican Primary portion begins at about 8 minutes 50 seconds into the video.

Tim Connors attended the CHIP candidate forum along with two other Republican candidates running for the nomination to challenge Marcy Kaptur in November. Tim is a regular guy, and so this event was a humbling experience for him, first time on a stage. Mike and the whole CHIP team did a fantastic job and asked great questions. LCCC filmed the event and will be showing the footage publicly. We have not seen the video yet but we thought Tim did a great job speaking his mind. CHIP is going to email the youtube link to us when the video is ready, we will post it on this website as well as on our campaign facebook page facebook.com/timconnorsforcongress.

Lucas County Republican Leadership
Tim had a brief meeting with the Lucas County Republican Party leadership yesterday 02/18/2020. Tim gave them some background info and spoke on a few issues he is running on. They asked some good, pointed questions and had some really great best practices tips. Tim appreciated being invited to meet with them, and we thank them for expressing interest and doing their due diligence to evaluate all the candidates. This group is going to back whichever candidate wins the March 17th, 2020 Primary. With your help, and your vote, Tim Connors will be the candidate Ohio's 9th pits against Marcy Kaptur this November 3rd, 2020.

Ottawa County Republican Party
Tim spoke to potential constituents in Ottawa County last night 02/17/2020. There were 3 candidates that spoke to the group. Tim spoke to the group about just how dirty Congress has become, and how we can end the corruption. The clear difference between the candidates was passion. Tim got very specific about some key legislation and stayed after the meeting to continue sharing with voters on various topics that were not covered in the speeches. Overall Tim said it was a great experience, and Jill Stinebaugh was an exceptional host. Tim is counting on the folks in Ottawa county to help carry the nomination on March, 17th 2020. Remember, a vote for Tim Connors on March 17th, 2020 is a vote for victory on November 3rd, 2020.

Avon - Avon Lake Republican Club
Tim spoke with the good folks of the Avon - Avon Lake Republican Club last night 02/13/2020. There were 3 candidates in attendance. He gave an impassioned talk on congressional corruption and malfeasance, and described some of the inroads made with local democrats and independents. Several voters stayed to talk with Tim. There were folks that just wanted to tell Tim he had their support, and there were folks deeply concerned with the future of America, and their families in particular. Tim is going to fight back against cultural Leftism. We can not allow our communities to be shattered and destroyed by radical identity politics and crazy communist ideals. Tim posted his own thanks and response from last night on the campaign Facebook page facebook.com/timconnorsforcongress. We believe the more people hear from Tim Connors, the more likely it is that we win this Primary on March 17th, 2020. Tim is the right person to go toe to toe with the democratic machine. We need your help to push us over the finish line and bring real change to Washington. Tell the Republican establishment that we've had ENOUGH of them running weak candidates for decades. Send a loud and clear message to Congress that we will no longer tolerate their behavior, send a message that Ohio's 9th district is not playing games, send them that message by sending Tim Connors to Congress. A vote for Tim Connors on March 17th, 2020 is a vote for victory against Marcy Kaptur on November 3rd, 2020. We can win. We will win.

We are ramping up activity and Tim is sharing more and more with local voters. So far we have heard from many many people, and we have gotten an overwhelmingly positive response. People from all over the district have liked what Tim has to say so far, and we are scheduling more public meeting events in the near future. Don't forget, if you have a question for Tim or would like to meet the man running to be your next congressman, feel free to drop us a line, or attend one of our meeting events. In between events Tim is talking to people like you. Every vote counts, and we will sit down with every single voter willing to hear him out.
The Primary is fast approaching and our push to have independents and disaffected democrats vote republican on March 17th is working. We can and will win this Primary, and win the general election November 3rd, 2020.

TEA party (Totally Engaged Americans)
Went to the 01/11/2020 meeting of the Lorain County TEA party to hear Tom Zawistowski give a fantastic keynote talk about activating ourselves to protect America and take the country back from corrupt career politicians. President Trump can't do it alone, he needs our support to continue draining the swamp.
