Local establishment Republicans came out for DeWine on January 19th
(See endorsement letter here)
In response we have written a letter to these individuals asking "What is it that you are endorsing?"
The letter was co-signed by nearly 200 concerned voters!
The following letter is being sent to these people cowering to DeWine:
We are contacting you to express our collective disappointment in your endorsement of Mike DeWine. Endorsement of Mike DeWine by you and other Republican leaders is totally contrary to the building sentiment against an authoritarian, extra constitutional rule that greatly expands the role of government.
His entire time in office Mike DeWine has worked against everything that conservative Republican voters have been demanding. He is the OPPOSITE of what we expect from our Governor in Ohio:
Heavy handed management of the “Covid Pandemic”
Ordered unconstitutional lockdowns of businesses throughout Ohio for an indefinite period. Big box stores (with significant lobbies) were allowed to remain open while most small business were ordered closed.
Churches were closed but abortion clinics remained open.
Opposed any effort to allow individuals to control their own health decisions. The Governor acted as the sole dictator of what was best for each citizen without any legislative authority.
Gave away millions in a vaccine lottery to encourage an experimental treatment, even to pregnant women and young children, whose current and future benefits and side effects are unknown. How can any fiscally responsible person consider this a wise use of funds.
The First Energy fiasco described by the media as “Selling out in the Statehouse”, resulting in a federal investigation and ongoing prosecution described as a nearly “$61 million bribery scheme”.
Violation of Election Law by unilaterally deciding to cancel a Federal Primary in direct opposition to federal and state law. Clearly Mike DeWine has no hesitation in assuming complete control. He does not listen to existing law, legislative authority and court orders.
We respectfully ask – What is it that you are endorsing? It cannot be constitutional governance. It cannot be for respect of the role of the legislature. It can’t be to enhance generally the freedom and liberty of Ohioans. Is it merely paying service to the Ohio GOP as taking priority over the voice of the voters? We the undersigned as both individual voters and leaders of various liberty groups throughout Southwest Ohio express our grave concerns over your endorsement and continued support of Mike DeWine in spite of his liberal (Democrat supported) conduct in his tenure as Governor. This is NOT the future we wish for the Republican party in Ohio.
The Republican Voters of Southwest Ohio
