Mike Dewine's Endorsements
From his website.
I strongly endorse the re-election of Ohio Senator Mike DeWine in 2006. Laura and I consider Mike and Fran DeWine good friends. Mike DeWine and I share a firm commitment to keeping America safe, strengthening our education system, creating jobs, providing quality health care, and holding the line on taxes. I need Mike DeWine in Washington to continue fighting for the values we believe in.
George W. Bush
If that doesn't say Rubber-Stamp I don't know what does. Bush needs Mike Dewine in Washington to maintain fundamentalist control of all three branches of the federal government. Also, unfortunately for Bush (and Dewine), only 40% of Americans approve of the president's handling of the economy. A mere 37% approve of his handling of the situation in Iraq. These two issues encompass 3 of the 5 firm commitments Dewine and Bush share.
Senator DeWine has a long and distinguished record of accomplishment for the people of Ohio, and he's earned our endorsement.
Chairman of the Ohio Republican Party
This is the same Bob Bennett that referred to Coingate as a "bipartisan scandal" and initally defended Gov. Taft despite his obvious ethical shortcomings.
One final endorsement comes from the battered Ohio Republican Party. Chris at AmericaBlog recently wrote, "The Ohio GOP is a classic example of the arrogance of power." Down With Tyranny recently noted that "The one party state of Ohio (all statewide officials and both U.S. Senators are Republicans) is notorious for allowing favored GOP campaign contributors illegal access to taxpayer funds."
If you believe in the timeless concept that "a man is known by the company he keeps," Senator Dewine will have a tough re-election campaign ahead of him.
