The Republican parties in Montgomery and Preble counties have endorsed Attorney General Mike DeWine in the race for governor.
The move comes as voters have yet to decide on the primary between DeWine and Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor.
Election Day is May 8.
“These endorsements continue to show tremendous momentum and enthusiasm for Mike DeWine in the race to be governor,” said Ryan Stubenrauch, press secretary for the campaign. “We are proud that our campaign’s conservative message for Ohio’s future is winning in both urban and rural counties across the state.”
Democrats running for governor include Richard Cordray, Connie Pillich, William O’Neill, Joe Schiavoni and Dennis Kucinich.
