RITE Applauds Gov. DeWine for Signing New Election Integrity Measures into Law


Friday, January 6, 2023

WASHINGTON, DC – Derek Lyons, CEO and President of RITE – Restoring Integrity and Trust in Elections – issued the following statement today, applauding Ohio Governor Mike DeWine for signing HB 458’s election integrity reforms into law. Lyons said:

“Voters need to have 110% confidence in the system we use to run our elections, and HB 458’s commonsense and broadly popular election security measures move Ohio closer to that essential goal. Elections are our republic’s crown jewels and must be zealously safeguarded. Voter ID, drop-box security, and other policies that enable hard-working election officials to minimize errors and delays in ballot distribution, collection, and tabulation help ensure that elections do what they are intended to do: express the will of the people, quickly and accurately. RITE applauds Ohio for continuing to be a leader in this vital area of public policy.

“Ohio’s reforms are lawful and will prevent fraud and other misconduct while promoting confidence in elections going forward. The United States Supreme Court and other courts have already upheld similar laws in Indiana, Wisconsin, Georgia, and Virginia – all states where turnout has increased in recent years. RITE is confident that these new reforms will withstand partisan litigation attacks by those with more to gain by casting aspersions on their political opponents than by promoting faith and trust in our elections.”

I support fracking and American energy independence. I’ve been very clear about what Joe Biden and his administration need to do to unlock Pennsylvania and America’s full energy potential. That’s why President Donald Trump, his Energy Secretary Rick Perry, and both Interior Secretaries Ryan Zinke and David Bernhardt have endorsed my campaign. Oil and Gas Pioneer Harold Hamm has also endorsed my campaign.

Dr. Oz is a Scientist

Unlike Fauci, I follow science. As a doctor, I’m well aware of the high suicide rates for transgender individuals. I’ve also been vocal about the negative and long-term ramifications that woke teachers and corporate America has on young children when they, for example, push a five-year-old biological male to want to be a girl. 


As a television show host, I engaged in open conversations with everyone who appeared on my show, which was a successful health platform for 13 seasons and allowed people to express different perspectives

USANA is a publicly-traded American company that manufactures products in the U.S. for American consumers and manufactures products in China for that market. 


As your next Senator for Pennsylvania, I will be tough on China and any of our geopolitical adversaries.

I believe life begins at conception. I am strongly pro-life, and I’ve been very vocal about this for years. As a heart surgeon, I spent my whole career saving lives. I’ve held a baby’s tiny beating heart in his hand, and at that very moment, it is impossible to deny how precious every life is.

Dr. Oz is a Principled Conservative

I am an America First conservative who has been endorsed by President Trump and Sean Hannity because of my strong stance on the issues that matter most to the conservative movement – I’m Pro-Life, tough on crime, strong on border security, a defender of election integrity, a supporter of our military and our heroic veterans, in favor of keeping taxes low and regulation limited, a believer in school choice and parental rights, and a proud champion of the Second Amendment.
