Wadsworth, OH- The Ohio House just passed a bill to give tax breaks to struggling electric car maker Lordstown Motors...which has been personally praised by Mike DeWine as the "future" and where Mike DeWine’s grandson Matthew happens to be a lobbyist. JobsOhio has already pledged millions in public funding to Lordstown Motors, and it looks like their connections to DeWine are paying off yet again.

Ohio Republican candidate for governor Jim Renacci says this is just another example of Dirty DeWine's nepotism, where his corrupt administration decides which businesses win or lose:

"We shouldn’t have to hire a member of the DeWine family to afford to do business in Ohio. As Governor, I will level the playing field for all of our businesses and job creators. Dirty DeWine doesn’t know what it’s like to sign the front of a check, he only knows to how to sign the back, and cash in on his political career."

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.
