Mike DeWine, Ohio’s state attorney general, has endorsed Tim Pawlenty for president. In a press release, DeWine lists his reasons for supporting Pawlenty. “As attorney general, I’m fighting to repeal Obama health care,” he says. “Govenor Pawlenty understands how to reform health care without unconstitutional mandates.”
Defeated in his senatorial reelection bid in 2006 by Sherrod Brown, DeWine was elected attorney general in 2010.
