Kevin DeWine (born October 11, 1967) was the chairman of the Ohio Republican Party, serving from January 2009 until April 13, 2012. Previously, he was a member of the Ohio House of Representatives.

DeWine graduated from Fairborn High School in 1986, received his Bachelor of Science degree in marketing from the University of Dayton in 1990, and earned an MBA from Wright State University[1] in 1996. The DeWine family resides in Fairborn, Ohio. Before holding public office, Kevin was a regional development manager for the Dayton Power and Light Company. He is the second cousin of R. Michael DeWine, who served as the 50th Attorney General of Ohio.[2]

When Steve Austria vacated his seat to run for the Ohio Senate, DeWine was elected to represent the 76th district in the Ohio House in 2000, defeating Democrat Eric Marcus and independent candidate Christina Turner, winning 62.3% of the vote.[3] In 2002, in the 70th district after redistricting, he defeated Democrat Lawrence Gordon with 71.7% of the vote.[4] He faced Gordon again in 2004, DeWine won with 69.3% of the vote.[5]

In 2006, DeWine won his fourth term with 60.4% of the vote against Democrat Kevin O'Brien.[6] DeWine was elected Speaker pro tempore in the 127th Ohio General Assembly. He was the chair of the Rules and Reference committee, and also serves on the Finance & Appropriations and the State Government & Elections Committees. He was not eligible to run for a fifth term due to term limits.

On January 16, 2009, he was elected unanimously as chairman of the Republican Party of Ohio.[7] He was reelected as chairman in 2011. He was replaced in April 2012 by Robert T. Bennett, following DeWine's resignation over disputes with Ohio Governor John Kasich.[8]
