Vice Pres­id­ent Mike Pence praised Rep. Jim Ren­acci (R) at a re­cent event in Clev­e­land.

Pence: “I was for Jim Ren­acci be­fore it was cool. I really was. I got to know him be­fore he was even elec­ted to the Con­gress, and now he serves on the power­ful Ways and Means Com­mit­tee. He’s been a great cham­pi­on of eco­nom­ic growth and jobs here in Ohio, and I truly honored, truly honored that you’d be with us today, Con­gress­man. … But they won’t suc­ceed I prom­ise you be­cause Pres­id­ent Don­ald Trump will not rest and will not re­lent un­til we re­peal and re­place this failed law and end the Obama­care night­mare once and for all. … The Pres­id­ent and I are grate­ful for the ef­forts in the House of Rep­res­ent­at­ives, and Con­gress­man Ren­acci was a key part of the pro­gress they made in the House.” (re­lease)

Ren­acci “flew to Clev­e­land with Pence in Air Force Two” to the event. Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor (R) was also there. (Dayton Daily News)

THE OTH­ER HEALTH­CARE DE­BATE. State At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Mike DeW­ine (R) “is de­clin­ing to take sides in a budget fight over Medi­caid ex­pan­sion between” term-lim­ited Gov. John Kasich (R) “and the GOP-con­trolled Gen­er­al As­sembly. … DeW­ine said ‘fatally flawed Obama­care’ must be re­placed, but that it is too early for the state to chart its course be­cause it’s un­cer­tain what health care changes will be en­acted by Con­gress.” (Colum­bus Dis­patch)
