Mike DeWine Wins Republican Primary For Ohio Governor

Ohio's Largest On-line Charter School, ECOT, Cuts Ties With Its Founder

Ohio's Largest On-line Charter School, ECOT, Cuts Ties With Its Founder

On the Republican side in the OH governor's race, DeWine, a former US senator who defeated Cordray for attorney general in 2010, faced Mary Taylor, Kasich's lieutenant governor.

Obama-era consumer agency head Richard Cordray has won the Democratic nomination for OH governor despite a surprisingly rigorous challenge from former U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich. Cordray is a mainstream Democrat who has pushed moderately progressive proposals while emphasizing his ties to former President Barack Obama and the need to fight the state's opioid crisis.

"It's like having a baby - like, am I doing this right?" she said. Ultimately, DeWine was endorsed by the Ohio Republican Party and consolidated support behind his campaign. Both Hagan and Gonzalez aligned themselves with Republican President Donald Trump on issues such as building a border wall. He featured Obama in his ads and campaigned with Warren.

Cordray, 59, defeated Dennis Kucinich, a former congressman and Cleveland mayor, and four other candidates for the party's nomination, according to the Associated Press.

Turner and Glover implored OH voters at an appearance Monday with Kucinich to support what they characterized as transformational change over the pragmatism of "establishment Democrats". His running mate, Jon Husted, is Ohio's Secretary of State.

Democrats see opportunity in the seat being vacated by Kasich, a two-term governor and 2016 presidential contender, while Republicans hope to hold the office.

The spots emphasized the 59-year-old Cordray's intellect and work for everyday Americans as head of the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and OH attorney general. And Cordray lost a four-way Democratic primary in 2000 for the seat held by DeWine, who was in his first Senate term. The remaining Democratic candidates are Larry Ealy, Bill O'Neill, Paul Ray and Joe Schiavoni.

"We started as friends; we ended as friends", O'Neill said. Cordray now supports universal background checks.
