Ohio county GOP criticizes governor on election, pandemic



BELVIDERE, Ohio (AP) — Republican officials in a southwestern Ohio county have accused the state’s Republican governor of having “grossly mishandled” this year’s primary election and not having “reacted appropriately” to the coronavirus pandemic.
