But, there’s no doubt this will be a turnaround project. … He has his work cut out; however his journal speaks for itself.” According to Politico, Paducah’s strategy in the state was to first “tap into the Ohio GOP’s strong infrastructure, as well as that of the Republican National Committee’s.”
Letter to Ohio GOP
On October fifteen, 2016, Paduchik sent a letter to the Republican Party of Ohio’s government committee formally severing campaign ties with state party chair Matt Borges. In the letter, Paduchik suspects Borges of “duplicity” for publicly reconsidering his support for Trump. The letter read, in part, “Mr. Trump told me, ‘This is why individuals have lost faith in the establishment and party leaders.’ I have to trust him. Too typically some leaders of our party have been fast to bail on candidates and principles —it’s why our nation is on the incorrect track.” Though Paduchik’s letter served ties Borges, he conjointly asked for the party to continue supporting Trump’s efforts in the state as well as “the Trump Victory payroll, HR and different services it provides.”
