Cleveland State University hosts final gubernatorial debate

On Monday, Oct. 8 Cleveland State University hosted the final of three governor’s debates between Republican candidate Mike DeWine and Democratic candidate Richard Cordray. The two main candidates, both former Attorneys General for the state (DeWine is the current AG), are looking to replace current Gov. John Kasich. Cordray has most recently served in the Obama Administration in the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. By all polling measures this is a very competitive race. Although all three debates have been bland in terms of entertainment, they have given voters a thorough understanding of the key issues and positions for both of the candidates. The main issues both candidates are concerned with are education, healthcare and the opioid crisis that has ravaged Ohio.
