Thank you, Geauga County, for helping to elect Donald J. Trump as our next President!
Republicans also kept majorities in both the US Senate and House of Representatives.
We endured eight years of one of the most leftist and failed administrations in our history. It is truly a time for change and the American people have spoken. Here’s the results:
- Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in Ohio by 9% – nearly half a million votes. Trump flipped 10 counties and won 81 counties. The last time a presidential contest had a margin of victory this big was in 1988. Trumbull County went red for the first time since 1928.
- Republicans hold majorities in the US Senate, 51 to 48, and in the House of Representatives, 239 to 192.
- Both the Ohio House and Ohio Senate added one seat to their majorities. The GOP now holds a record of the largest majority in each chamber with 66 of 99 members in the House and 24 of 33 members in the Senate.
- In Geauga County, we had almost 78% voter turnout and of those, 60% voted for Donald Trump. All of our local candidates won with at least 64%, with Congressman Dave Joyce and State Senator John Eklund getting the highest percentages, about 72%.
Except for State Senate D32 and 11th District Court of Appeals (where Lake and Trumbull Counties have larger populations than Geauga), we won every race on our slate card, including both contested Ohio Supreme Court seats.
Congratulations to all our Republican candidates for a job well done!
Thank you to the voters for supporting our candidates. A special thanks to all of our dedicated volunteers who worked long and hard for these great results.
May God continue to bless America and Geauga County and guide President-elect Trump as he takes office on January 20, 2017.
