I do recall that he had to recant some of his pro-gun positions to take the agency appointment. Whether that was sincere or not is the same question that is being posed about DeWine. Accordingly, neither one is that attractive.

''....have a history of switching sides once they reach the national stage...''

Ditto of all people, Al Gore Jr. While in TN was pro gun, anti tax, anti abortion. Flip the Scrip when going national...and then REALLY went off the road after that ! ! !

Truthfully, if I take Husted out of the equation, Mary Taylor is the most pro-gun in my personal experience.
Ain't activism fun?

I sort of like Mary and she has been supportive of us in the past, but I haven't ruled out Renacci yet either.

Here's a few interesting comments about the Governors race, on both the Republican and Democratic candidates

http://www.daytondailynews.com/news/sta ... SN5hKyovI/

DeWine-Husted ticket called governor’s race ‘dream team’ by GOP state senator


Husted said he’s been traveling the state hearing Republicans say they are tired of intraparty fighting.

“Republicans have been fighting with each other long enough. Had I continued my run for Governor, Mike and I would have fought a brutal campaign that would have left the winner bruised and broken with only a few months to rebuild in time for the General Election,” Husted wrote in an emailed message to supporters.

“It’s time to work together,” Husted said at the news conference. “And that day begins today.”


Taylor announced at a Thursday afternoon news conference that she will stay in the race.

“Ohio wants a governor who will challenge the satus quo, not accede to it,” Taylor said. “We won’t get there, however, with old and typical answers offered by establishment politicians, who are more comfortable being part of the system than challenging it.”


Renacci’s campaign also said the DeWine-Husted ticket is the status quo.

“Career politicians Mike DeWine and Jon Husted have joined forces to offer voters a ticket with over 60 years in politics,” Renacci spokesman James Slepian said. “If they think this what Ohioans are looking for, they’re running in the wrong party’s primary.”


Here is an endorsement (sort of) for Dewine/Husted :roll:

I
n an email to supporters, Whaley called the DeWine-Husted team a “nightmare.”
“If they win, it would be a decade-long nightmare for Ohioans,” she said.


On the downside, there's this:

Former Republican Gov. Bob Taft said the DeWine-Husted ticket reminded him of the 1989 primary, when he, George Voinovich and DeWine each ran for governor. Voinovich and DeWine joined together to craft a winning ticket for 1990, while Taft went on to become secretary of state.


And last but not least, there's these two on the Dem side :roll:

Some observers believe Dennis Kucinich, former Democratic congressman and Cleveland mayor, will run. He could not be reached for comment.

A former exotic dancer who went by the name Luscious Larry is launching a second bid for Ohio governor.

Larry Ealy of Trotwood has picked up petitions to run in the May 8 Democratic Primary, according to the Montgomery County Board of Elections.
In 2014 Ealy and running mate Ken Gray of Cincinnati received 17,197 votes — 17 percent of those cast statewide — in the Democratic primary against former Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald and Sharen Schwartz Neuhardt of Yellow Springs. FitzGerald won the primary with 83 percent of the vote but lost the general election to Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

During an interview at the time, Ealy said that he was running because he believed “the Jewish Democratic party is behind the deprivation and the conspiracy to keep black people deprived of all civil rights.”

I second that AND in that order, but Rennaci will never play second fiddle, so I'd gladly settle for a Renacci / Taylor ticket.

IMO, Husted has hurt his reputation with gun owners at this point.
