Donald Trump is endorsing Governor Mike DeWine for reelection.
Trump says DeWine serves the office “professionally and patriotically”.
However, In 2020, the former president suggested that someone challenge DeWine in the Republican primary after he appeared on CNN, urging Trump to begin the transition to Joe Biden following the presidential election.
DeWine posted on his social media saying he was “grateful” for Trump’s support.
Democrat candidate for governor, Nan Whaley, is critical of DeWine’s acceptance of the endorsement, accusing him of “going whichever way the political winds blow”.
Who knows what Mike DeWine had to do to get this endorsement.
It will take all of us to fend off the corrupt extremists who want to take our state backward by banning abortion and selling out working-class families.
