Republican Gov. Mike DeWine has found himself in a tough position right at the start of his administration – having to raise a tax that hits most Ohioans. And Democrats have pounced on him for it. 

During last fall’s campaign for governor, Republican Mike DeWine ran tough ads – one claimed Richard Cordray would “raise taxes and kill jobs."

“I believe that successful politics is not always defined by the outcome of an election," he said. "The reason we do this is because we want to improve people’s lives. And I believe the work that all of you have done throughout this campaign has changed the conversation in ways that will dramatically improve the lives of people all over Ohio.”

Richard Cordray says Ohio needs to do a better job at supporting public transportation at all levels, from big cities to small towns. The Democratic nominee for governor said investing in public transit is part of his larger plan to improve infrastructure.

Cordray stepped onto a COTA bus in north Columbus to see how new high-tech gear helps busses run routes more efficiently.
