(Columbus) - Ohio Republican Party Chairman Kevin DeWine issued the following statement today on the election of Tom Niehaus to serve as the next President of the Ohio Senate:
"Tom is an incredibly capable leader who has the perfect temperament to lead the Senate through the challenges that lie ahead. He's a tough diplomat and a straight shooter, and he understands the importance of building bipartisan support while leading with conservative principles.
