A reporter from the New York Times managed to catch a moment with Mike DeWine amid his sunshine-soaked luxury confab at the Biltmore Waldorf-Astoria in Arizona. The reporter, who was covering the Republican establishment events, asked DeWine about President Trump. Unshockingly, DeWine was "uninterested" and "evasive." 

DeWine has shown "uninterest" and "evasiveness" toward Donald Trump since the minute DeWine took office. 

DeWine was one of the first governors to completely shut down his state in defiance of President Trump's leadership. This move cost Ohio hundreds of thousands of jobs, which Ohio still hasn't recovered. 

DeWine "dodged" and "brushed" off questions in 2020 about whether he would follow President Trump's plan to reopen the country by Easter, allowing Americans to get back to work.  

DeWine even postponed Ohio's primary election despite President Trump's advice that such a drastic move was "unnecessary." Perhaps if DeWine had followed President Trump's leadership, Ohio wouldn't be trailing other Republican-led states in its stalled economic recovery. 

Meanwhile, DeWine has been praised by Liberal Democrats. 

MSNBC host Chris Hayes called DeWine's radical lockdown policies "incredible." Joe Biden said he had "enormous respect" for DeWine's left-wing mask policies which DeWine is still enforcing to this day.  Democrat Nan Whaley also praised DeWine for his "terrific" COVID mask and lockdown policies.

Ohio voters choose President Trump by eight points. Ohioans deserve a true conservative governor who leads like Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott, not Andrew Cuomo and Gavin Newsom. Unlike R.I.N.O. DeWine, Jim Renacci doesn't hide from reporters or evade questions about Trump. Jim Renacci proudly supports President Trump and his agenda that puts America AND Ohio first.


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.
