Mike DeWine: Ohio Republican governor says wearing a mask is ‘about loving your fellow human being’ – CNNPolitics

Governors across this nation are showing the kind of courage and determination that leaders need. Mike DeWine is one of them.

You may agree or disagree, but he sounds sincere, and thoughtful. We see so little of those qualities these days.

Republican Gov. Mike DeWine said Tuesday evening that wearing a mask to protect against coronavirus is “about loving your fellow human being,” saying he tells Ohioans to wear the face coverings even as they have become a political flashpoint amid the pandemic.
