WEST CHESTER, OH (FOX19) - Republican governor candidate Mike DeWine and running mate Jon Husted wrapped up their primary campaign Monday with an appearance at a West Chester Township beer distributor.

The men spoke at Ohio Eagle Distributing on Allen Road as part of their "Rock Solid Conservative" bus tour.

Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones introduced the GOP's endorsed gubernatorial ticket.

Campaigning has been lively in the past week as both Republicans and Democrats crisscross Ohio to rally supporters ahead of the primary.

DeWine and Husted are challenging Mary Taylor, the current lieutenant governor, and Nathan Estruth to be the Republican candidate for governor in the Nov. 6 general election to replace Gov. John Kasich, a term-limited Republican.

DeWine, a former U.S. senator, is the current state attorney general, and Husted is Ohio's secretary of state.

Leading the pack on the Democratic side of the race is Dennis Kucinich, a former congressman, and Rich Cordray, a former state attorney general.

Cordray and his running mate, Betty Sutton, will finish their campaign's "Ohio Get Out The Vote Tour" with stops Monday in Columbus and Toledo with local and state teacher and labor union leaders.
