“Due to very significant local dissatisfaction with the current administration, The Mercer County Republican Central and Executive Committee does not endorse, current Governor, Mike Dewine in the Spring 2022 Primary Election. We also are requesting the Ohio State Republican Central Committee refrain from endorsing (Governor) DeWine, nor using party financial resources to support him in the Primary Election.”
