Jim Renacci has announced that he will run for Governor. The former U.S. representative, U.S. Senate candidate and mayor of Wadsworth has been a vocal critic of Gov. Mike DeWine’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as longer-standing job creation and retention issues. Renacci briefly ran for Ohio governor in 2018 before dropping out to vie for Cleveland Democrat Sherrod Brown’s U.S. Senate seat. That ended in a roughly 6-point defeat. In June 2020, Renacci took over as chairman of the Medina County GOP.
