Republican Ohio Governor Mike DeWine survived a test of the far right’s sway as he seeks a second term in office.
DeWine handily won Tuesday’s primary despite losing the backing of some conservative groups who were angry over his aggressive pandemic policies.
DeWine was up against three far-right challengers in the primary, including former Congressman Jim Renacci.
Ohio Democrats chose former Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley as their nominee for governor over former Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley
DeWine and Whaley will now face off in the fall.
Democrats haven’t won the governor’s office in nearly 16 years.
Thank you for everything, Senator. Let's win this. https://t.co/iKNCM1r1wz
