We already knew Yost was a bright conservative with a solid future, but his game clearly has stepped up.
As Attorney General Richard Cordray prepares to intervene in the corruption scandal in Cuyahoga County government, opponent Dave Yost today criticized Cordray for his allegedly sluggish response.Puppy paw? Awesome.
“Fortunately, the federal government has the lead in this case," Yost said in a statement. "Ohio’s legal watchdog should have pounced on this matter long ago. Now that he’s put his puppy paw in the ring, we are left to wonder what kind of job Cordray could possibly do, given the fact that, prior to taking office, he had no prosecutorial experience whatsoever."
While DeWine is laying the groundwork as the frontrunner for the GOP nomination, Yost is embracing his role as underdog with his second attack against Cordray in a week and showing the state Party establishment that he understands who is the real enemy.
As we've mentioned before, DeWine is the candidate we need to stop the Cordray for Governor 2014 train, but it's clear that Yost has a bright future in the Ohio Republican Party.
