GOP Gov. Rejects Divide Over Wearing Face Masks: This Is Not About Politics
Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is the latest Republican governor to reject the political fight over wearing face masks in public to mitigate the spread of coronavirus.
“This is not about politics. This is not about whether you are liberal or conservative, left or right, Republican or Democrat,” DeWine said during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, adding:
“It’s been very clear what the studies have shown, you wear the mask not to protect yourself so much as to protect others. And this is one time where we truly are all in this together. What we do directly impacts others.”
