Ohio GOP gubernatorial candidate Jim Renacci slammed Governor Mike DeWine, following the closure of a Tenneco shock absorber manufacturing facility.
The closure of the plant in Kettering, which will fully take place by 2023, will impact 648 employees who work at the location, according to WHIO.
Jim Renacci, former U.S. Representative and GOP gubernatorial candidate, released an ad on Tuesday, accusing Governor Mike DeWine of defending violent protestors and placing them ahead of small businesses throughout Ohio.
“While mobs and violent protesters were burning our state down, Mike DeWine defended them and did nothing to protect us from their looting and destruction. Instead, he implemented Andrew Cuomo’s playbook and put the mob first at the expense of Ohioans who were being terrorized,” Renacci said in a statement detailing the new ad.
