For the second time in a week, a Republican running for office in St. Joseph County was asked to leave the St. Joseph County 4-H Fair because of a disturbance at the county GOP booth.
Gerard Arthus, who is running for Indiana State Senate District 10, told the South Bend Tribune that he asked a volunteer Thursday why his name wasn’t listed on the St. Joseph County Republican Party‘s banner.
He said the volunteer started yelling, so he called 911. Eventually he was escorted from the fair at the request of the Fair Board. Arthus filed an informational report with the St. Joseph County Police Department.
The incident happened six days after Republican circuit court judge candidate Doug Bernacchi was reportedly kicked out of the fair after arguing with a GOP booth volunteer for the same reason. Bernacchi has since said he left because he got sick after eating sugary fair food.
