Controversy and criticism

DeWine's attack ad against Brown used doctored imagery of 9/11.
DeWine's attack ad against Brown used doctored imagery of 9/11.

On July 14, 2006 DeWine's campaign began airing TV commercials depicting a smoking World Trade Center. "The senator was notified... by a reporter at U.S. News & World Report that the image of the burning Twin Towers could not have depicted the actual event because the smoke was blowing the wrong way."[5][6] DeWine's campaign admitted that the video was actually a still photo of the World Trade Center with smoke digitally added.[7] He also was criticized for using an emotionally charged image to attack his challenger.[8] Image File history File links Dewinedoctoredad. ... Image File history File links Dewinedoctoredad. ... An attack ad in election terms is an advertisement whose message is meant as an attack against another candidate or political party. ...

U.S. News & World Report is a weekly newsmagazine. ... 1 World Trade Center redirects here. ...


Another of DeWine's ads suggests that opponent Sherrod Brown didn't pay his taxes for thirteen years. This claim led to the Associated Press reporting on October 19th that, "Several Ohio television stations have stopped airing a Republican ad because state documents contradict the ad's accusation that Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Sherrod Brown didn't pay an unemployment tax bill for 13 years." Brown has produced a commercial citing these facts.[2] DeWine's ads were changed to state only that he had failed to pay his unemployment taxes until legal action was taken against him.


DeWine has also been criticized on the issue of national security. Pundit Bob Geiger has noted that DeWine, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, has missed nearly 50% of that committee's public hearings. Rand Beers, an intelligence critic and expert who has served during the Bush and Clinton administrations, asserted that DeWine's attendance at the Committee's closed meetings has not been better, charging that "he is not a particularly active member."[9] The United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is dedicated to overseeing the United States Intelligence Community—the agencies and bureaus of the U.S. federal government who provide information and analysis for leaders of the executive and legislative branches. ...

William Jefferson Bill Clinton (born William Jefferson Blythe III on August 19, 1946) was the 42nd President of the United States, serving from 1993 to 2001. ...


2006 re-election campaign

DeWine faced conservative Republican challengers William G. Pierce and David R. Smith for the nomination of the Republican Party in the May 2006 primary. DeWine won with 71.82% of the votes.[10] The Ohio Senate election of 2006 will be held on November 7, 2006. ... William G.

DeWine's Democratic opponent in the November general election is Congressman Sherrod Brown of northeast Ohio, who won 78.05% of Democrats' votes in the primary, defeating truck driver Merrill Samuel Keiser, Jr. [3] Iraq War veteran Paul Hackett dropped out of the Democratic race earlier in the election cycle.

Most political watchers believe DeWine is one of the Senate's most vulnerable incumbents in Senate 2006 elections. Democrats looking to win back the Senate are pouring resources into the race while the GOP is working hard to retain Senate control. John McClelland, a spokesman for the Ohio Republican Party said, "It's vitally important to the Republican Party as a whole, so I think that's why you see the President coming to Ohio to support Mike DeWine". Conservative Republicans countered that they could not support any Republican as liberal and "out of touch" with conservative values as DeWine. The presidential seal was used by President Hayes in 1880 and last modified in 1959 by adding the 50th star for Hawaii. ...


A poll released on October 10, 2006, by the Bliss Institute of Applied Politics at the University of Akron showed that DeWine maintains a very slight lead at 1.3 percent among all voters, which is within a three-point margin of error. Among likely voters, the poll has DeWine ahead by a mere 0.2 percent, again well within the margin of error.[11] The University of Akron is an institution of higher learning located in Akron, Ohio. ...


According to an article in the October 16, 2006, edition of The New York Times, top Republican party officials on the national level have determined that DeWine will probably be defeated and are moving financial support from his race to other Republican senatorial candidates they feel are more likely to win.[12] The New York Times is a newspaper published in New York City by Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr. ...


Two polls released on October 17, 2006, both show DeWine trailing challenger Brown. The Quinnipiac University Poll shows Brown leading DeWine, 53 to 41 percent. The other, the University of Cincinnati's "Ohio Poll," showed Brown at 52 percent and DeWine at 45 percent.[13] The worst poll is a recent Survey USA poll which shows DeWine behind by 20 points.[14] The University of Cincinnati is a state university located in Cincinnati, Ohio. ... SurveyUSA is a polling firm in the United States. ...
