DeWine era to mark shift away from volatile Kasich, Trump

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The inauguration of Ohio Gov.-elect Mike DeWine will mark a shift away from volatility in a state buffeted in recent years between the shifting ambitions of an outspoken governor and the frequent outbursts of an unpredictable president.

Even before taking office Monday, the 72-year-old attorney general has moved through the transition process with a methodical calm. He’s laid out his slate of diverse, bipartisan Cabinet picks at amply announced press conferences. He’s politely declined to step on outgoing Gov. John Kasich’s (KAY’-sik) toes.

The theme of his inaugural, “Faith, Family and Friends,” feels like a dose of comfort food after Kasich’s bold “New Day” and two years of President Donald Trump.

DeWine’s comfortable election this fall put Ohio’s oldest governor and one of the state’s most familiar politicians at the helm.
