Mike DeWine Joins GOP Race For Ohio Governor

Mike DeWine Announcement

(Cedarville, Ohio) — In a day and age when politicians announce their candidacies on social media, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has entered the 2018 race for Ohio governor at his annual ice cream social.

The social is an event that shows off the former U.S. senator and lieutenant governor's deep political roots in the state.

DeWine told the hundreds in attendance at the event at his Greene County home that he is making improvement of the state's schools, attracting business, and the opioid crisis three of his major campaign issues.

Cedarville University Political Science professor Mark Caleb Smith says DeWine's name recognition and favorability among voters, along with his $2.5 million campaign fund, should make him an instant front-runner.

The other GOP candidates are Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor, Secretary of State Jon Husted, and U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci.
