WASHINGTON (AP/WSAZ) - Mike DeWine has won the Republican nomination for governor in the Ohio primary election, the Associated Press reports Tuesday night.

Despite backlash from conservatives over COVID-19 shutdowns and mandates, incumbent DeWine secured his party’s nomination Tuesday.

DeWine is widely known for a 40-year career in Ohio politics. He is a former Attorney General, Congressman and U.S. Senator.

DeWine became Ohio governor in 2018.

DeWine defeated Canal Winchester farmer Joe Blystone, U.S. Rep. Jim Ranacci and state Rep. Ron Hood.

“Look, this has been a conservative administration. This has been an administration that has kept its promises,” said Gov. DeWine Tuesday evening. “This is an administration that is moving Ohio forward, and I think that we’ll be able to get those Republicans who didn’t vote for me.”
