COLUMBUS (WCMH) — President Donald J. Trump is coming back to central Ohio, this time to attend the 2018 Ohio Republican Party State Dinner.
The high-priced dinner will be held on Friday, August 24th at 6pm at the Columbus Convention Center.
Tickets to attend the dinner start at $250 for an individual or $400 for a couple. $500 will get you a single ticket to the Ohio GOP Chairman’s VIP Cocktail Reception and VIP seating.
The visit is a coup for Chairman Jane Timken, a Trump loyalist who ousted the state GOP’s previous chairman in January after the president personally intervened on her behalf.
President Trump also will attend a fundraiser while he’s in town for U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci, who’s seeking to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown this fall.
This will be the president’s second trip to Ohio this month. He attended a rally in support of U.S House candidate Troy Balderson on August 4 at Olentangy Orange High School. Balderson is facing Democrat Danny O’Connor in November for a full, two-year House term.
