Trump Delegate, Ohio Tea Party Leader Ralph King Endorses Mike Gibbons for U.S. Senate
Cleveland, OH – Ohio Tea Party Leader, Trump delegate and Trump presidential elector, Ralph King, endorsed businessman and outsider Mike Gibbons for the United State Senate today. King is a co-founder of the Cleveland Tea Party. He also served as a delegate for Donald Trump in the GOP Primary and was one 18 Ohio votes in the Electoral College that made Donald Trump President. He has also served as State Coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots, the largest national Tea Party group for 8 years and is co-founder of Main Street Patriots, a nationwide liberty group. In 2016, King was also assistant Director for Ohio of the Pro-Trump Great America PAC.
“Donald Trump won because voters like me were fed up with career politicians who get nothing done and only care about themselves,” King said. “Josh Mandel is a pandering, career politician who has only created opportunities and jobs for his friends. Mike Gibbons is an outsider like President Trump who can’t be bought by the special interests. I’m proud to endorse his campaign for the United States Senate. It is vitally important that we defeat Sherrod Brown in November and I know Mike gives us the best opportunity to do so.”
U.S. Term Limits Praises Mike Gibbons for Signing Term Limits Pledge
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Term Limits (USTL), the leader in the national movement to limit terms for elected officials, today praised Ohio U.S. Senate candidate, Mike Gibbons, for signing its congressional term limits pledge.
In November of 2016, U.S. Term Limits had more than 50 pledge signers in Congress. USTL President Philip Blumel commented on Gibbons’s pledge, saying, “Mike’s support of term limits shows that there are people who are willing to put self-interest aside to follow the will of the people and the founding fathers. America needs a Congress that will be served by citizen legislators, not career politicians.”
The U.S. Term Limits Amendment Pledge is provided to every announced candidate for federal office. It reads, “I pledge that as a member of Congress I will cosponsor and vote for the U.S. Term Limits amendment of three (3) House terms and two (2) Senate terms and no longer limit.” The U.S. Term Limits Constitutional Amendment has been introduced in both the U.S. Senate by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and the House of Representatives by Representative Ron DeSantis (R-FL).
Blumel noted, “More than 75% of Americans have rejected the career politician model and want to replace it with citizen leadership. The way to achieve that goal is through congressional term limits. Gibbons knows this and is willing to work to make sure we reach our goal.”
According to the last nationwide poll on term limits conducted by Gallup, the issue enjoys wide bipartisan support. The poll showed that 75% of Americans support congressional term limits. Gallup’s analysis states, “Republicans and independents are slightly more likely than Democrats to favor term limits; nevertheless, the vast majority of all party groups agree on the issue. Further, Gallup finds no generational differences in support for the proposal.”
Blumel concluded, “America is in trouble. Our career politicians have let the people down. It is time to limit their terms and return control of our nation to people who have actually had to create a job, earn an honest paycheck and pay a mortgage. It is time for a constitutional amendment limiting congressional Terms.”
The term limits amendment bills would require a two-thirds majority in the House and Senate, and ratification by 38 states in order to become part of the constitution.
