CINCINNATI -- Hamilton County Commissioner Greg Hartmann hosted a GOP presidential debate watch party at the Montgomery Inn Boathouse for Greater Cincinnati's young Republicans on Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2015.

It's part of a strategy he and others hope will energize the critical Millennial voting bloc.
