The Oath of Office was administered by Ohio Supreme Court Justice Pat DeWine, the governor’s son, and it was presided by Judge Thomas Rose from the Southern District of Ohio.

Fran DeWine, Ohio’s First Lady, held the bibles as he took the oath of office surrounded by members of the governor’s family.

Reverend Tom Hagan delivered the invocation while the National Anthem was sung by the Firehouse Friends.

Within minutes of taking the official oath of official, DeWine signed five executive orders, “regarding antidiscrimination, youth mentorship, mental health and addiction benefits, workforce development and the prohibition of certain foreign-owned applications on state-owned electronic devices,” according to his spokesperson.

A ceremonial swearing-in will take place Monday at 12 p.m. at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.
