Who’s in? A look at who is running for governor
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley responded to the endorsement.
DeWine emphasized his support for the 2nd Amendment.
"DeWine expanded concealed handgun license reciprocity rights for Ohioans to 38 states. He has also pushed Congress to pass a nationwide concealed carry reciprocity law and filed an amicus brief urging the US Supreme Court to strike down a ban on modern sporting rifles and so called "high capacity" magazines," according to a statement from DeWine's campaign.
Whaley called the endorsement “political pandering at its most obvious.”
“As a mayor, I don’t have the luxury of participating in acts of political theater like Husted. I go to work every day to ensure our streets and our communities are safe and to create jobs.”
