Social conservatives from Ohio and other key states in this upcoming presidential contest have been invited to a closed-door meeting with presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump next week. They include the head of the state’s leading anti-abortion group.
Mike Gonidakis with Ohio Right to Life said he wants to ask Trump specifically about his campaign strategy. “Simply put, unless he has a more inviting message, it’s going to be very difficult for him to win Ohio and without winning Ohio, you’re not going to win the White House," Gonidakis said. "So I’m going to ask him simply to explain the strategy and what he’s going to do in addition to what’s currently doing, because the current strategy doesn’t work.”
Gonidakis says to win Ohio, Trump needs social conservatives, but also that they need him, since Gonidakis says they can’t vote for likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. The meeting is set for Tuesday in New York.
