Well, I’m back in Columbus this weekend and grabbing lunch with some old political hack friends of mine has already yielded juicy Ohio political gossip exclusive to 3BP.
Rumor is that former Senator Mike DeWine very recently filed with the Secretary of State to run for Ohio Attorney General.
Somewhere, the Cordray family is weeping.
While we’re fans of current GOP AG hopeful Dave Yost, unfortunately his candidacy faced the steepest hill to climb among GOP statewide candidates next year. DeWine running gives the GOP a great shot at retaking the office.
With DeWine joining the statewide slate, it’s safe to say the Ohio GOP has done a great job of recruiting top notch talent to run on John Kasich’s coattails. I kid I kid.
But seriously, with Kasich, Portman, Taylor, Mandel, Husted, and DeWine, ORP Chairman Kevin DeWine has put together a solid slate of GOP candidates that all have a solid chance to win next November.
Thanks for lunch, fellas. It was fun.
