With a helping hand from the Ohio Secretary of State, the Republican Headquarters is now open in Athens.

It happened at noon Friday with Secretary Jon Husted, who is a Republican, but who kept his remarks non-partisan.
Twenty or 30 candidates and supporters were on hand for the grand opening at 20 Station Street, which Athens County Party Chair Pete Couladis says is actually the second GOP office in town.
The opening comes a few days before the Republicans have their national convention in Tampa, Florida.
Hear audio of Husted's full remarks in the attached clip.
