Taylor criticizes GOP gubernatorial frontrunner DeWine

Friday, April 13, 2018

YOUNGSTOWN — Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor, who is running as a Republican gubernatorial candidate, sharply criticized her opponent, Attorney General Mike DeWine, as an out-of-touch liberal in an increasingly bitter GOP primary race.

During a endorsement interview today with The Vindicator, Taylor said, “Mike DeWine is running a campaign today that wants Republican voters to believe that he’s conservative yet when you look at every time he’s been asked to stand on those conservative principles on behalf of conservatives, he’s chosen a different path.”

Taylor’s campaign today began airing a television and digital commercial called “962,” that talks about the 962 times DeWine voted with Hillary Clinton between 2001 and 2006 when the two were in the U.S. Senate.

DeWine’s campaign fired back sending a cease-and-desist letter to TV stations airing what it called “false and deceptive advertisements” from Taylor.
