Tea Party groups, including those from Cincinnati and West Chester Township, will question House Speaker John Boehner‘s primary challengers at a forum and straw poll 7 p.m. Thursday at Crestview Baptist Church, 6600 Salem Ave., Clayton, Ohio.
Candidates include Republicans Matthew Trisler, Don Carter, Eric Gurr and J.D. Winteregg. Boehner declined an invitation, according to organizers. Democrat Tom Poetter did not respond to an invitation, they said.
Candidates will be questioned on policy and political issues. Questions will focus on tea party principles of fiscal responsibility, limited Constitutional government and the free market.
