You're seeing why it's hard to unseat an incumbent.

I'd argue that he didn't get away with passing any anti 2a stuff of note, largely because the Legislature stood firm against them.

He sure floated some.

I don't think we should give him credit for backing off on stuff that he'd get past a weaker Legislature.

He might not be a rabid anti-gunner, but he's not opposed to "commonsense" gun control, when the heat gets turned up by the anti-gunners. I'll bet he's less inclined to sign pro-gun legislation once he's not worried about reelection, too.

That's scary. A few stuffed valid here, a few stuffed valid there, and we have a Democrat.

I don't quite understand how we have a solidly Republican legislature but can come close to putting a Democrat in the Governor's mansion.

If Dewine is replaced by a Dem., hopefully we keep a veto-proof majority at the state house. Then again, if he retains his seat, hopefully we keep a veto-proof majority also.

This is what the primaries are for.  Support/work/fund/vote for the one who aligns closest to you.  Even if the incumbent/other still wins it close races or strong underdogs can help send a message and impact the agenda going forward.

Unfortunately when the general election comes, we are back to lesser of evils.

I will vote against him in the primary  but will stay out of it if he goes to the general election.

No way I am giving him my vote for any reason. Voting for crap Republicans is what keeps giving us crap Republicans.

You do you, but I am no longer going to perpetuate  the cycle any longer.

I am 63 years of age and have never voted for anyone.

You can call it bad or negative attitude if you like, but I look for the worst candidate and have always voted AGAINST the greater of 2 evils.

All that covid BS was about as bad as the liberal states. The mask mandate only repealed because finally the legislature took his power away. So fuck Dewine.

Not mention all the businesses he shut down.

Being a Boomer and retired I don't really have much contact with liberals, but I do have a couple that I communicate with and they think that DeWine isn't so bad. I'm saying that some liberals think he's an OK Governor. What does that tell you?

Strickland was as close to a blue dog as I e seen in a while. Then Obama reeled him in and it was over.

Weren't his policies driven in part by the GOP controlling the purse strings?

I was not living in the US at that time, but know he was ever so cool, playing the Sexophone on MTV, and any whispers of him being a sex case were eradicated.
I know he wasn't at Oxofrd University long. I think in part to his pastime of assaulting women, but it was yet another case that was not front page news. And, once Bill met his handler, Hillary, she made sure it was easier for him to get away with his crimes.
To be honest , I think the "Me Too" movement was nothing more than a distraction, and Weinstein was an easy mark to throw under the bus...
There are too many dems that still live Bill and would vote for him in a heartbeat, we would just need to make sure it's a straight up vote between the two parties and not have a Ross Perot split the vote..

I believe the reason he lost Congress was due in part to the AWB, which he was happy to sign, and the Big Guy along with the likes of Frankenfeinstein put together.

As far not fitting into the right side of the Left today, they probably said the same about the Skin Suit in the WH, but look at him now...

I have never voted for Dewine and never will. I didn't care for him to begin with and at a former job I had to do some work for him and he was extremely rude to me, especially for someone who came up to my knee.

wow, ...and probably because of the severe coercion that was going on there to get the jab, ...hospitalization rate for CV19 was less than 1% (most sheep have no idea it was this miniscule), ...and the vast majority of those were elderly, obese, and/or with other "co-morbidities".    there was no need to take the risk on the deep state's elixir that was "so great", they all had to censure, bully, and force people to take it...  especially if otherwise healthy and young...

...and dewine (who just got CV19.?.?) was out there non-stop promoting it...

...that, along with his tyrannical lockdown (that also did more harm than good), is why i'm enthusiastically voting for one of the anti-dewine candidates...

How is that different from LaRose / DeWine? LaRose plays games with elections, and DeWine is certainly no Republican.

I won't vote for DeWine. Just can't. If that means we wind up with a Democrat, then so be it. Maybe then the Ohio Republican Party will start providing us with better quality candidates. There should be a vetting process imposed to make sure that those who propose to run on a Republican ticket are actually conservative. Otherwise we wind up with people like DeWine again and again.

...when it comes down to it, it's us...   remember the candidate is determined by the primary election.   ...this year, we have competitive alternatives to the incumbent...   so, this year especially, it's on republican primary voters to show up and ditch the kool aid...  we can, at the least, send a shot across the bow to dewine, ...and who knows, if we do our job, well, we would foment a major upset!
