RGA Statement on Ohio Democrat Primary

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Republican Governors Association released the following statement after Nan Whaley’s victory in the Ohio Democrat Gubernatorial primary:

“Following a messy race to the left that saw Nan Whaley endorse extreme progressive policies and pivot further out of line with mainstream Ohio values, it’s more clear than ever that Mike DeWine is the best choice to lead the state forward,” said RGA Executive Director Dave Rexrode. “Whaley failed Dayton as mayor and would bring those same broken policies to Columbus. Governor DeWine helped the state overcome challenging circumstances in pursuit of a more prosperous future for all Ohioans, and we look forward to him earning re-election this fall.”
