CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The governor of Ohio said he believes the 2020 election will end the same way voting did in 2016: With a Republican victory for President Donald Trump.
During Tuesday’s COVID-19 briefing, Gov. Mike DeWine was asked to predict the outcome of the 2020 election, which some say could be a close race in Ohio.
“The president won last time by nine points, I think, and that was a big, big, surprise,” the governor said. “I think he’s going to win this time in Ohio. I think it will be close, but I think he will win.”
The governor’s remarks came just hours before the first presidential debate, hosted in Cleveland, between the president and Democratic candidate former Vice President Joe Biden.
