Gov. DeWine and GOP challenger Blystone have spat at Ohio Beef Expo

Angus wasn’t the only beef going down at the Ohio Beef Expo this Saturday.

The day after Ohio Senate candidates literally went toe-to-toe, Gov. Mike DeWine and challenger Joe Blystone had an exchange at the Ohio Beef Expo at the state fairgrounds in Columbus.

Video released by the Blystone campaign shows the two gubernatorial candidates talking for a bit before Blystone points at DeWine. DeWine then touches Blystone’s shoulder, but Blystone pushes DeWine’s arm away.

Shortly after, three men with DeWine direct him away from Blystone, separating the two. The governor travels with security.

Blystone, in a video explaining the incident, says he approached DeWine to ask about why the governor wouldn’t debate him. DeWine recently declined the Ohio Debate Commission’s event at Central State University set for March 29, saying everyone already knew his positions on the key issues.
