CLEVELAND, Ohio (WYTV) – An underlying theme this week at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland has been uniting the Republican Party heading into the November election.

The party formally nominated Donald Trump for president Tuesday night.

Ohio Governor John Kasich’s lack of endorsement for Trump has resulted in plenty of criticism from other Republican leaders.

Ohio Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor said that at some point, the back and forth needs to stop.

“Governor Kasich is going to make a decision about what he is going to do in this election based on his personal beliefs, and I respect that,” she said. “I think it’s going to have to calm down a bit and if you are poking the bear, you are going to get a response that you may not really like.”

Taylor says with the RNC winding down and the Democratic National Convention beginning next week, it’s time for voters to make a decision.

“In November you’re gonna vote for Donald Trump or you’re gonna vote for Hillary Clinton. She is not an acceptable answer for me, so I will not and could not vote for Hillary Clinton. So I think that at the end of the day, those are our choices, and make a decision.”
