Gov. Mike DeWine has postponed his Tuesday coronavirus briefing.

DeWine was initially expected to deliver remarks at 2 p.m. Tuesday, but his office said the briefing would be postponed until Wednesday due to a news conference scheduled for 2:30 p.m. with the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The postponement was announced following the arrest of Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder on Tuesday morning, along with 4 associates, regarding a $60 million bribe investigation by the FBI.

DeWine will now hold the next briefing at 2 p.m. Wednesday.
