    Attorney General Mike DeWine targeted five pharmaceutical companies in a sweeping lawsuit filed today, alleging misrepresentation and misinformation on their part in the growing American opiate addiction crisis. The companies are Janssen Pharmaceutical, Allergan, Purdue Pharma, Endo and Cephalon. "They are the most prominent," DeWine said of the defendants. "They constitute a majority of the drugs." He insisted that the companies played an active role in flooding the market with prescription painkillers, which led explicitly to addiction for untold numbers of Ohioans. A woman who lost her daughter to opiate addiction appeared with DeWine today, explaining to reporters how powerless...
  • Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland blasts Gov. Kasich and AG DeWine's decision to join Texas lawsuit

    12/24/2014 2:29:07 AM PST · by ObamahatesPACoal · 10 replies
    Last week, the State of Ohio joined 19 other states in suing the federal government over President Obama's recent executive action on immigration. In addition to subjecting thousands of Ohio families to deportation, the lawsuit, if successful, would deny $41 million in much needed tax revenue to the state over the next five years. In the wake of this news, Ohio leaders have been quick to blast the decision by Governor John Kasich and Attorney General Mike DeWine to join this frivolous lawsuit. Former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland also added his voice to the mix, highlighting how DeWine’s action stands...

    (ABC News) Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has had a change of heart. The prominent Buckeye State Republican threw his support behind presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Friday afternoon, switching his allegiance from Mitt Romney to the former Pennsylvania senator. “To be elected President, you have to do more than tear down your opponents,” DeWine said in a statement. ”You have to give the American people a reason to vote for you — a reason to hope — a reason to believe that under your leadership, America will be better. Rick Santorum has done that. Sadly, Governor Romney has not.”

    DeWine: 'Abundantly Clear' Romney Would Lose to Obama FEB 17, 2012 • BY MICHAEL WARREN Why did Mike DeWine, Ohio’s Republican attorney general and a former U.S. senator, shift his endorsement from Mitt Romney to Rick Santorum? “When I endorsed Governor Romney, I thought he was the best candidate to beat Barack Obama. As this campaign has played out, it is abundantly clear he is not, and I believe he [would] lose in November,” DeWine told THE WEEKLY STANDARD in a phone interview. “It’s abundantly clear that Governor Romney’s campaign is no better than it was four years ago.” DeWine...

    Rick Santorum will be the third presidential candidate to enjoy the endorsement of Ohio Attorney General and former U.S. Sen. Mike DeWine. The AG, who was the force behind Ohio’s participation in the states’ lawsuit to block Obamacare, initially supported former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty. When Pawlenty exited the race, DeWine transferred his support to Mitt Romney, whom Pawlenty also backed. Today, though, DeWine will reassign his endorsement yet again — this time to his former colleague in the Senate, Rick Santorum, according to Associated Press sources.

    Until now, the Barack Obama re-election campaign has focused its rhetorical guns almost exclusively on Mitt Romney. The Wall Street Journal reports that may soon change, however. With Rick Santorum soaring at least for now to the top of the polls, they will begin adding him to their messaging hit list: President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign has begun discussing whether to attack Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum and try to define him for a general-election audience, potentially breaking from its focus on Mitt Romney.Obama campaign aides are stepping up their examination of Mr. Santorum’s record to assess his vulnerabilities and...

    State Rep. Peggy Lehner, R-Kettering, on Monday won the recommendation of a seven-member Republican screening committee to fill the state Senate seat being vacated by Jon Husted. The recommendation will be presented to the full Republican caucus on Wednesday, said Senate President-elect Tom Niehaus, R-New Richmond. Lehner was recommended over state Rep. Seth Morgan, R-Huber Heights, and three other applicants for the 6th District seat. “We would expect the caucus to support the recommendation,” said Niehaus. Husted was elected secretary of state Nov. 2 and will take that office in January. The official Senate vote on his replacement will come...

At the time of submission, a receipt for these signatures was given to Christopher. We have a copy of this receipt that can be sent to any media source upon request.

    “Thanks W!” proclaims the lapel button some delegates to the Republican convention are sporting this week in St. Paul. Smiling from that button: Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Samuel Alito. A group of conservative activists and GOP delegates got together in Minneapolis Tuesday on the sidelines of the convention to focus on the election’s highest stakes — as in the highest court in the land. “Elections do have consequences,” said ex-senator Mike DeWine from Ohio, who was booted from his Senate seat in 2006. Yes, it was a humdrum truism. But the defeated DeWine himself exemplified the fact...

    Andrea Mitchell of MSNBC had Ohio Democrat Senate Nominee Sherrod Brown on as a guest and her first question to him was, being the first to defend Senator Kerry after his remarks does he still defend Senator Kerry? Mr. Brown stated he did and then went on to say there are more important things going on in Ohio other than what the media wants to talk about. Mr. Brown seemed very annoyed at even the mention of US troops fighting in Iraq and it was obvious from his talking points that he will not support US troops anywhere around the...
  • Giuliani: Save Patriot Act, Vote DeWine

    Rudy Giuliani, mayor of New York City during the 9/11 terrorist attacks and their aftermath, said Tuesday the results of the Nov. 8 election would affect the war on terrorism. "This election is going to put the country in a position, I believe, to be able to deal with terrorism on the offense, or go back to being on the defense," Giuliani told reporters after headlining a fundraiser for Republican U.S. Sen. Mike DeWine. He said the post-Sept. 11 USA Patriot Act, which DeWine supports and Democratic nominee Rep. Sherrod Brown opposes, is an example of the difference between the...

    Analysis of FEC reports ^ | 10/25/06 | Dangus
    One must be careful to make too much of a given Senate candidate appearing broke at the 3rd-quarter FEC filing time. After all, the national parties and major donors can rescue a strong candidate’s foundering finances. And certain costs, such as advertising, may even still have been paid up front. But when so many candidates from one party, who have been very strong, are suddenly out of cash, while the other party is cash-rich, something may be afoot. In this case, the Republicans continue to use their strategy which produced surprise wins in 2002 and 2004: They are keeping their...

    A television ad is causing controversy in the Senate race between Republican Mike DeWine and Democrat Sherrod Brown. TV stations across the state, including WEWS, are no longer airing the ad sponsored by the Republican National Committee. At question is the accuracy of one of the key claims in the ad against Brown. The RNC ad attacks Brown for what it says is a failure to pay an unemployment tax bill from 1993. The ad is based on documents that show a lien was placed on an unpaid tax bill in 1993. The Brown camp produced documents showing that the...
