Taylor vs. DeWine: candidate comparison, by the issues (2018 Republican primary for Ohio governor)

May 4, 2018

Most of what follows is a series of guest posts on the governor’s race, written by fellow Ohioans.  I have not taken the time to duplicate the research and add links to all sources, but I trust the source.  If you have any doubts, I encourage you to do your own research and make up your own mind.

Anyone tired of the negative ads in the governor’s race? Maybe even confused by them? Indeed, it is not possible for them all to be true.

I thought it might be helpful for you to know how I’ve sorted through this with the help of the campaign staff, what I’ve learned, and why I am voting for and supporting Mary Taylor & Nathan Estruth for Governor and Lt. Governor. And thanks for taking the time to read this!

Mary chose Nathan, a 26-year Procter & Gamble executive, to be her Lieutenant in the Governor’s office. Nathan and his wife Madonna have been married for over 25 years and raised their four children in Southwest Ohio. Their eldest son Daniel has profound cerebral palsy. Nathan & Madonna have been champions of Life and families and religious freedom for over 25 years, serving on the Board of the Alliance Defending Freedom, which protects Christians and pastors all around the world, supporting numerous pregnancy care centers, City Gospel Mission, and national Christian conservative champions like Rep. Jim Jordan and Senator Steve Daines.

The television ads in this race have become extremely negative. Mike DeWine has become increasingly desperate as his lead has vanished. Mary Taylor and her family have been wrongfully attacked and slandered in the ads. The Taylor/Estruth campaign has stuck to reminding voters of Mike DeWine’s record and avoided the personal attacks that Mike DeWine has embraced. Quite simply, the Columbus political establishment is worried about conservative truth tellers taking over.

Finally for added encouragement, please know that Ken Blackwell, Michele Bachmann, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, the National Chairman of the Susan B. Anthony List Campaign Jill Stanek, Pastor JC Church of the Family Research Council, Heidi Huber (Ohio Education Advocate) and the Right to Life Action Coalition of Ohio (representing all the grassroots Right to Life organizations such as Cleveland Right to Life, Toledo Right to Life, Cincinnati Right to Life, etc.) have all endorsed Mary Taylor and Nathan Estruth. Thus, you will be in good company in doing the same.

Please join in spreading the truth contained herein and in the attached to everyone you know in Ohio — family, church, school & home school networks and co-ops, friends, work colleagues, neighbors — over the next few days and in voting for Mary and Nathan on Tuesday, May 8th. Additional campaign and policy information is available on their official campaign website at Mary Taylor for Governor.com.

The good news is that a 26 point deficit in the polls in January has been reduced to single digits. This race is very winnable!

Thanks to those who contributed to this guest-post series.
