AP calls governor races for DeWine, Cordray

Share

Despite all the millions spent on attack ads, charges and counter-charges, it turned out pretty much the way most people expected it would - former OH attorney general Richard Cordray, the Democrat, will face the present attorney general, Mike DeWine.

The two candidates considered early frontrunners were the ones left standing Tuesday night after the smoke cleared from nasty internal party ads and finger-pointing, in which their aggressive opponents accused them of not being either conservative or liberal enough. He was endorsed by the Ohio Republican Party and was bolstered by his partnership with Husted, who dropped his own governor bid to become a running mate. Both DeWine and Cordray won spirited primaries with at least 60 percent of the vote each. He picked up the powerful endorsement of the Ohio Republican Party over Ms. Taylor's objections and then declined to debate her. "When Jon and I walk into the governor's office on January 14, we will be ready to lead".

Cordray is also DeWine's predecessor, having served as Ohio's attorney general before heading the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) for almost six years.

Kucinich is a feisty former nine-term congressman and Cleveland mayor who energized voters with an anti-gun, pro-environment platform.

There is also a GOP Senate primary in OH, another state where President Donald Trump won in 2016 and a Democratic incumbent is up for re-election this fall.

Rounding out the field were state Sen.

The other candidates on the ballot were Joe Schiavoni, Paul Ray, Bill O'Neill, and Larry Ealy.

Cordray on Tuesday defeated former Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D) in the Democratic primary. He attacked Cordray as an "establishment Democrat" willing to compromise his principles to special interests.

Renacci had the backing of President Donald Trump ahead of Tuesday's five-way contest.

"This victory happened for a reason", Cordray said, addressing all Ohioans. Now we are running together to make OH work for you.

During a May 7 interview with Bloomberg Radio, Cordray said, "Having practical proposals that improve people's economic lives is where it's all about in OH, and that's what we're focused on". "So this campaign is going to be about you, and I think it's about time".

The Republicans will have to earn it this time - the Democrats aren't likely to hand it to them on a silver platter again. He featured Obama in his ads and campaigned with MA U.S. Sen.
