Republicans spent their evening campaigning for Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine outside a rally held by former Vice President Joe Biden at Youngstown State University.
Biden was in town campaigning for Richard Cordray, who is running against DeWine for Ohio governor in the upcoming November election.
Mahoning County Republican Party Chairman Mark Munroe was outside with the DeWine supporters, who say DeWine’s experience makes him the best choice for governor.
“Here is a guy who, he’s been a county prosecutor, he’s served in the General Assembly, he’s been the attorney general of the state of Ohio, he’s served as lieutenant governor, he’s been a United States senator. Nobody has been better prepared to be governor than Mike DeWine,” Munroe said.
They carried DeWine campaign signs, held American flags and some even wore President Donald Trump T-shirts.
“Some estimates coming out of the General Assembly suggest that Rich Cordray spending is going to cost $4 billion to Ohioans, maybe costing Ohioans $3,000 a year. We can’t go back to those same days of failed economic policies. We’ve got a better choice in Ohio, it’s called Mike DeWine and John Husted,” Munroe said.
Ohio Governor John Kasich will campaign for DeWine on Friday in Columbus.
