    America's Conservative News ^ | 02/18/2012 | ABC News
    (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...

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.

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...

"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...

    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...

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.

Mike DeWine (R-OH). The buy, which costs in excess of $1 million, is scheduled to last for two weeks. Polling continues to show the Ohio contest between DeWine and his Democratic challenger, Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), to be close, though most state and national political observers believe that Brown has the advantage.

    WASHINGTON — In an unusual move, the Republican National Committee is investing heavily in television advertising in Senate races in Ohio, Tennessee and Missouri in what officials describe as a firewall strategy designed to limit Democratic gains in the Nov. 7 elections and maintain the GOP majority. The move reflects a desire on the part of Ken Mehlman, the Republican Party chairman, and other strategists to exercise more control over the drive to retain a majority, according to several Republican officials. They said the decision has caused friction with officials at the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which historically has been...

    Once again, the challenger in Ohio's highly competitive race for U.S. Senate has edged out the GOP incumbent in the Rasmussen Reports election poll. Democrat Sherrod Brown now leads Republican Senator Mike DeWine 45% to 42% (see crosstabs). The one-point improvement for Brown since July doesn't mean much, except perhaps to political junkies gulping down popcorn in the front row. But the fact that the challenger has a narrow lead in three out of the last four polls is significant. Early in the year, DeWine was consistently ahead. Even though the incumbent had a seven-point advantage in June, our three-poll...

Meanwhile, Democrat Sherrod Brown holds an 8-point edge in his bid to unseat two-term Republican Sen. Mike DeWine. Strickland’s 47-to-27 advantage over GOP rival J. Kenneth Blackwell is fueled by a more than 3-to-1 lead among independent voters, combined with Blackwell’s inability to sell himself to Ohio Republicans.

    The fight for control of the House is getting more ink than the battle for control of the Senate, but several recent shifts in individual Senate races merit attention. All year, talk about the Democrats' chances of taking the Senate has focused on the five most endangered Republican incumbents. They are, roughly in order of vulnerability, Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, Conrad Burns of Montana, Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, Mike DeWine of Ohio, and Jim Talent of Missouri.

    The FBI has drafted sweeping legislation that would require Internet service providers to create wiretapping hubs for police surveillance and force makers of networking gear to build in backdoors for eavesdropping, CNET News.com has learned. FBI Agent Barry Smith distributed the proposal at a private meeting last Friday with industry representatives and indicated it would be introduced by Sen. Mike DeWine, an Ohio Republican, according to two sources familiar with the meeting. The draft bill would place the FBI's Net-surveillance push on solid legal footing. At the moment, it's ensnared in a legal challenge from universities and some technology companies...

    BROWN VS. DeWINE Senate race in national spotlight Monday, May 29, 2006 Joe Hallett THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH WASHINGTON — In the interval between their workaday lives on Capitol Hill and all-out campaign war in Ohio, Sen.

Analysts say their U.S. Senate race is one of the top three in the nation, and Nov. 7 could end the political careers of Republican DeWine or Democrat Brown, each of whom has spent the past three decades in elected offices. That the usually cautious Brown is...

    Democrat Ted Strickland has maintained his lead over Republican Ken Blackwell in the Ohio governor's race, but Blackwell has narrowed the gap, according to the University of Cincinnati's Ohio Poll.

The margin of error is plus or minus 3.7 percent. Republican Sen. Mike DeWine is leading his Democratic challenger, U.S. Rep. Sherrod Brown, 52 percent...

It is a system that is not good for American security, particularly during our fight to combat international terrorism. It is not good for American workers and businesses. And, it is not good for the immigrants, themselves. To tackle this problem, we must have a comprehensive immigration plan that...
