COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Republicans in central Ohio say they are making plans for the bellwether state's first presidential straw poll.

The Franklin County Republican Party event will take place Oct. 22 on the campus of Ohio State University.

Executive Committee Chairman Doug Preisse (PRYS') says the straw poll will give Ohio Republicans a chance to be heard in the increasingly competitive GOP presidential primary.

No Republican has ever won the White House without winning Ohio, and Preisse says early primary states, the media, and voters deserve the opportunity to learn where the key swing state stands on the nomination process.

Ohio Republicans wanting to vote in the straw poll must purchase a ticket for $25.
