President Trump is trying to push governors like Mike DeWine of Ohio and Andy Beshear of Kentucky into quick re-opening of their states' economies, fearing the worst as he heads into a re-election campaign. But the governors are resisting a quick return to normalcy. DeWine says Ohio can't completely come back until a COVID-19 vaccine is developed and that may not not happen for a year or more.

WVXU Senior Politics Analyst Howard Wilkinson spoke with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik about what the Ohio and Kentucky governors face before they can lift stay-at-home orders.
