It was a messy primary election, but the two parties now are regrouping to get behind their candidate to win the governor's race. 

The 2018 Governor’s race between Mike DeWine and Richard Cordray is a rematch of the 2010 Ohio Attorney General Race, where DeWine won by a little over 1 percentage point. But as November 6th General Election approaches, the two governor candidates will be trying to gain as much support in their own parties and also try and lure undecided voters to their side and to do that, they will use their history.

"I think Cordray will emphasize his experience in the Consumer Protections Bureau fighting for workers. I think that Democrats will be trying to get out, those lost Obama voters that went over to Trump. I think Cordray will do that through finesse,” said Rob Alexander, Professor of Political Science at Ohio Northern University.

In last week's primary election, around 120,000 more Republican voted versus Democrats and with President Trump having a decisive win in Ohio in 2016, DeWine may stick with the same strategy going against Cordray. 

“It may be that DeWine continues to really pound strong conservative values, I am pretty sure that he will. There will be some contrast between Cordray and DeWine there, but at the same time, I don’t think that DeWine needs to go too far to the right out of his comfort zone, out of his wheelhouse. Name recognition in something like this is really important, as is party affiliation,” added Professor Alexander.
