WATCH: Recent Toledo GOP Meeting Sparks Brawl, Campaigns Shut Down by Clevelander

GOP members got a little out of hand at a Republican Party organizational meeting in Lucas County last week, according to a cleveland.com article.

Supporters of Bill Delaney, who is currently vying for chairmanship of the Lucas County GOP, began hurling accusations of impropriety at Jon Stainbrook, the incumbent chairman, the article said.

A brawl ensued, with Delaney supporters shoved forcibly out of the building by security.

In the wake of the events, Cleveland's Republican Richard May, who is running for a Congressional position currently held by Toledo Democrat Marcy Kaptur, has suspended campaigning in the area for the next two months, essentially placing the two in a time out.

Check out what went down for yourself.
