DeWine greets Trump after the president arrived at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base to meet with people affected by the mass shooting in Dayton, Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2019.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine went on CNN last weekend and said that Joe Biden should be considered the president-elect. That got under Donald Trump's skin to the point that the next day, he was tweeting out that Ohio's gubernatorial election could get interesting, implying that DeWine might face a GOP primary challenger in 2022.

And there is one Trump loyalist in Ohio who seems ready to go that - former congressman Jim Renacci.

WVXU Senior Political Analyst Howard Wilkinson talked with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik about just how big a threat Renacci might be to DeWine's chances for a second term as governor.
