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

Posted By on Thu, Jun 19, 2014 at 9:14 AM

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