Ohio governor Mike DeWine, a Republican, seems to have fallen back into the crosshairs of Trump.
Who will be running for Governor of the Great State of Ohio? Will be hotly contested!
“It’s clear that, certainly, based on what we know now, that Joe Biden is the president-elect. And that transition, for the country’s sake, it’s important for a normal transition to start through,” DeWine – a Republican like Trump – said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “And the president can go on his other track and his legal track. We should respect that, but we also need to begin that process.”
As part of his media tour for his new book, former president Barack Obama sat down with The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg. In that interview he lapped praise on George W. Bush and how the Bush administration handed off the federal government to Obama’s incoming administration.
The Guardian’s Martin Pengelly has more:
In an interview with the Atlantic to mark publication of his memoir A Promised Land, Barack Obama ponders Joe Biden’s chances of working with Republicans in Congress, comes close to admitting to being a never-Trump conservative himself – and compares America under Trump to Central Asia under Genghis Khan.
“If we were going to have a rightwing populist in this country,” Obama says, “I would have expected somebody a little more appealing.”

Donald Trump and his allies are pushing back on reports that the president’s re-election campaign is pulling back on major aspects of its legal challenge to the election results in Pennsylvania.
The Washington Post forgot to read the complaint. Fake News. Poll Watchers, and the way they were treated, are a very big deal in the complaint! https://t.co/Rhc4RY0QSF
Do not use the law firm of Swaine & Viebeck.
They are the WAPO activists who falsely wrote that we changed our case in PA.
They didn’t read para 132-150 which repeat all the allegations of the 680,777 mail in votes which were deliberately concealed from Republican inspectors.
