An official from the University of Cincinnati’s Political Science Department reached out to the Cincinnati Republic last night to apologize for the error made in the planning of the UCivic event. They assured us the problem was being solved, and indeed, it has been. At least one Republican candidate, and the Hamilton County GOP has been invited to participate in the event. We are satisfied with the Department’s initiative taken in fixing the problem.
Made in the original post with an editor’s note, clarification must be made that the University of Cincinnati, nor its Political Science Department sponsored this event. It is being hosted on campus. The necessary steps have been taken and we at the Cincinnati Republic hope the event goes well for all parties involved.
