DeWine projected to be next Ohio Governor

OHIO — Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is projected to be the next Ohio Governor according to Election Night projections by media outlets.

DeWine, a Republican, and Democrat Richard Cordray were running for Governor as John Kasich was not eligible for another term.

With 8,187 of the state’s 8,904 precincts reporting, DeWine had received more than 2 million votes, 51.34 percent. Cordray received 45.76 percent of the vote.

It was a rematch of the 2010 election when DeWine narrowly ousted Cordray to become attorney general.

More on the Governor’s Race and other state races will appear in the Thursday edition of The Daily Sentinel.
