Big to see the Dispatch editorial board endorsing Nan Whaley — as much, the bd makes clear, about what has happened to the Republican Party and how DeWine has reacted as anything Whaley has done.…
Shorter Dispatch: Why are you spineless, Mike? Image
Mike DeWine was first elected to office (as a prosecutor) before I was born, was in the US Senate until Sherrod beat him in 2006, and then came back by way of state gov’t positions. And yet, as the Dispatch makes clear, he’s afraid of his own party now. And not focused on Ohio.

Montrose Group, a Republican public affairs firm in Columbus, has released a wide-ranging poll that includes #OHGov and #OHSen. It was conducted Sept. 6-11, the week Republicans ramped up their spending in the race.


DeWine 49 Whaley 37

Ryan 46 Vance 43
The poll was done by Fallon Research, which I'm not very familiar with, but which did some polling for Mary Taylor's Super PAC in 2018.

Montrose generally deals with economic development issues, and there are a bunch of Cap Square-type Qs.

Cross tabs:…
Final note on this, this poll is among registered voters, but the methodological notes say the voters either have "histories of voting in recent even-year November elections" or are new registrants.
