Members of the Media: Please RSVP for the event by emailing Ryan Stubenrauch
In your email please include how many people you anticipate bringing, any special setup you need (e.g., satellite truck), what time you need to set-up, whether you plan on doing live shots, etc.
Previously, I had sent around details for an election night watch party at our campaign headquarters. With the current media and guest RSVPs, we have exceeded the fire code capacity and have moved our event to a new, bigger location.
We will have audio for the event with access to a mult-box. Additionally, there will be tables for print media and risers for television. While parking will be much easier at this location, we are no longer able to offer dedicated ethernet access to television crews. There will be a secured wi-fi network available to the media but the bandwidth will not support live broadcast. I have spoken to several outlets who plan to bring a satellite truck. If you plan to bring a satellite truck please email me and confirm I have you down so we can guarantee a street parking spot with a short cable run.
Mike DeWine and Jon Husted
