Wadsworth, OH- Ohio Republican gubernatorial candidate Jim Renacci has a warning for voters; “Don’t let Mike DeWine fool you. Last year DeWine cheered on anti-police protests, calling them ‘very appropriate’, as Ohio burned and murders soared. Now that it’s an election year, he’s suddenly throwing money at police to try to hide his record,” Renacci said.

Ohio saw its homicide rate increase  by 40% since 2019 and is now higher than it’s been in more than three decades. Columbus alone reported a record number of homicides in 2020 and is on track to break that record in 2021.

“Ohio needs a Governor who will  actually stand with law enforcement every single day, not one who just pretends to during an election year.”



Former Congressman Jim Renacci is a proven business leader with the skills we need to turn Ohio around. He came here with just $200 and grew that into numerous businesses that employed tens of thousands of Ohioans. Renacci is running for Governor of Ohio to restore fiscal sanity, end the culture of corruption in Columbus, and fight for the rights of hardworking Ohioans.
