Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine says peaceful transition of power will prevail in November election

COLUMBUS – While President Donald Trump initially declined to commit to the peaceful transition of power if he loses in November, fellow Republicans, including Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, say it will happen.

“Historically, what’s made us different from the beginning is we have a peaceful transfer of power,” DeWine said, adding that no matter how hotly contested a race is, when the results are in, both sides have to accept it and move on.

“Those who lose will accept it, because that’s what we do in America,” DeWine said.

On Wednesday, Trump said, “Well, we’ll have to see what happens” when asked if he would commit to a peaceful transition if he lost the election.
