ONTARIO, OH - Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted was in Ontario Wednesday to speak at an event held for local business owners and local elected officials. Husted is the running mate of Mike DeWine, the Republican candidate for Ohio Governor.

The event was attended by the President of the Ohio Manufacturer's Association Eric Burkland, Republican Representative Mark Romanchuk, and Ontario's Mayor Randy Hutchinson, among other local dignitaries.

After a short introduction made by Romanchuk, Husted spoke to the crowd about his and DeWine's Prosperity Plan, a path to success for local businesses and for Ohio as a whole. Husted accepted questions from the press after the event.

Mike Gwin, Campaign Spokesman for Democratic candidate Richard Cordray, released a statement about the event: "No matter what DeWine says, he can't escape the fact that he's spent 42 years as a politician doing the bidding of his special interest donors at the expense of middle-class families. Ohioans need a governor who will fight for them and put more money in their pockets, just like Rich did as Attorney General and as America's top consumer watchdog. Mike DeWine's shown that his priority will always be appeasing wealthy and powerful corporate interests — not putting Ohio workers first."
