DeWine next Governor of Ohio

Mike DeWine emerged victorious in the tight race to become Ohio’s governor, successfully retaining the seat under Republican control.

DeWine, Ohio’s attorney general who was tapped to succeed term-limited Republican Gov. John Kasich, defeated Democrat Richard Cordray in a contentious battle in the Buckeye State. Libertarian Travis Irvine and Green Party candidate Constance Gadell-Newton trailed behind in the election.

The 2018 election is not the first time the two candidates faced off; they ran against each other in Ohio’s attorney general race in 2010, when DeWine defeated Cordray, then an incumbent, by a narrow 2-point margin. This time, they found themselves in another tight race, with the Cook Political Report rating it as a toss-up since the Ohio primaries took place in May.
