    WARREN COUNTY, Ohio (WKRC) - Early voting is in full swing and there's already been a record number of votes cast in Ohio. As of Wednesday morning in Warren County, Brian Sleeth, the director of elections, said about 64,000 early votes had been cast. "That's by mail and office. Numbers that we've never seen before,” Sleeth said. “We're voting between 1,400 and 1,700 voters a day. We're expecting over 2,000 this weekend each day.” ... According to Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, twice the number of Ohioans have cast ballots than at the same point in 2016.
  • NY Admits Cuomo Has Been Making Up the Coronavirus "Red Zones"

    Follow the science. Governor Cuomo, the media, and his supporters have claimed that his false accusation that the segregation of particular areas as hot zones, some appearing to target Orthodox Jews, was based on the work of health experts and statistics. But discovery is a wonderful thing. Even when judges refuse to do the right thing, the process provides invaluable insights into a deeply corrupt system. The Brooklyn Catholic Diocese sued Cuomo and produced some incredible admissions, via OJPAC. "NYGovCuomo’s Howard Zucker admits in a brief in the Brooklyn Catholic Diocese case that “there is no specific percentage threshold to...

    Accused conspirators charged in a plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer also discussed "taking" Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, an FBI agent testified at a court hearing Tuesday. During the hearing in Grand Rapids, Mich., to discuss the charges filed last week against members of a self-proclaimed militia accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan’s Democratic governor, FBI Special Agent Richard Trask revealed that months ago some of the suspects met in Dublin, Ohio, where Northam, also a Democrat, was discussed as a potential target.
  • Joe Biden Slurs His Way Through Opening Remarks: 'Because Uh, by Cause It's Ellen General Motors'

    If we didn’t know better, we’d think the Democratic presidential nominee was drunk on Monday when he delivered his opening remarks to a small group of supporters in Ohio. Thanks to a Marie Claire magazine article on the subject published earlier this year, we know Biden isn’t a drinker. Still, the 77-year-old slurred his speech heavily as he navigated his opening comments while addressing a small crowd of supporters in Toledo at a drive-in rally. Democrats for years have knocked President Donald Trump when comparing him to former presidents, and specifically when comparing his remarks to those of 20th-century icons,...

    Trump mocked his rival Joe Biden for stating he was 'running for Senate' - using the momentary lapse as more evidence of his claim that Biden is unfit for office. On Monday in Toledo, Ohio Biden addressed United Auto Workers who represent a local GM power train plant. The former VP spoke in a parking lot with 30 American-made cars and trucks arrayed nearby. 'You know, we have to come together. That's why I'm running. I'm running as a proud Democrat for the Senate, when I ran as a proud Democrat for vice president, and I'm running as a proud...

    Kevin McCullough is predicting 333 electoral votes for Donald Trump and 208 for Joe Biden. Biden wins Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado, Illinois. He wins Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, and — not, New Hampshire. Not New Hampshire. Vermont. And everything else on this map is red. Pennsylvania is red. Ohio is red. Florida is red. Arizona’s red. Texas is red. Nevada is red. Arizona is red. Now, he hasn’t been wrong since 2006. And, by the way, have you heard people saying, “Man, this year feels a lot like 2016”? Meaning,...

    Nearly 50,000 voters in Franklin County -- Ohio's most populous county -- received incorrect absentee ballots in the mail, elections officials said Friday, revealing a major glitch that appeared to affect one in five ballots the county had sent so far. Officials promised to have new ballots mailed within three days to the 49,669 voters who received the wrong ones. "We want to make it clear that every voter who received an inaccurate ballot will receive a corrected ballot," the board said in a news release, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

    … Ohio is one of the key swing states in the US that regularly see close contests between the Republican and the Democratic candidate for president. In 2016, Trump won Ohio. Recent polls show the incumbent and Biden neck and neck. Winning swing states like Ohio is the only way to win the election — and the Buckeye state has proven to be a good predictor for who will succeed at that. Since 1944, Ohioans have only once sided with the losing candidate in a presidential race, when they opted for Richard Nixon over John F. Kennedy in 1960. […]...

    President Trump’s campaign is canceling planned television ads in Ohio and Iowa for this week to instead focus funding in states where polls show the president trailing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The president’s reelection campaign canceled $2.5 million in ads in Ohio and $820,000 in ads in Iowa, according to ad-tracking firm CMAG, CNN reported Monday. This week will be the third week in a row without Trump TV ads in the two Midwestern states as polls show a deadlocked race between Trump and Biden. A Sunday CBS-YouGov poll determined the candidates were tied in Ohio at 47 percent...

    The nonpartisan Cook Political Report shifted the presidential race in Ohio and Iowa to a "toss up" on Tuesday from "lean Republican," citing recent polls showing a tightening race between President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The independent online newsletter had moved the race in both states to "lean Republican" from "likely Republican" in mid-June but on Tuesday said it decided to shift the states to a toss up as recent polls show a close race. Ohio and Iowa, two states Trump carried in 2016, are more critical for Trump to win than for Biden. Biden doesn't necessarily...

    EXCLUSIVE: As officials in the key battleground state of Ohio prepare for an unprecedented surge in mail-in ballots for the 2020 presidential election, Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose wants to make it clear that any shift in voting tallies after Election Day should not be taken as an indication of wrongdoing. More than two million Ohio residents requested mail-in ballot applications prior to the start of early voting on Tuesday, doubling the count at the same time in 2016 and 2012. Ballots in the state are counted for up to 10 days after Election Day -- as long as...

    Governor Mike DeWine (R-OH) said he hoped President Donald Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis served as a “cautionary tale” for people who have been reluctant to wear masks to combat coronavirus on Sunday’s broadcast of CNN’s “State of the Union.” DeWine said, “I said this at a press conference I did the other day, this should be kind of an alert to everybody that anybody can get the virus, even president of the United States can get the virus. So we ought to use this and simply just, you know, learn from it and so people who maybe have not worn masks...

    Yesterday, Governor Mike DeWine signed House Bill 614 into law, legislation that should help to relax the concerns of law-abiding Ohio gun owners whose CHLs are expiring soon. An amendment to HB 614 extends all CHL expiration dates through at least June 30, 2021. In addition, if a license expires between April 1, 2021 and June 30, 2021, the license is further extended an additional 90 days past the expiration date. The amendment also removes the contiguous county requirement during the time of Ohio's “emergency order” related to the COVID virus.  So, a licensee may renew at ANY sheriff’s​ office in...

    Officials for the City of Cleveland said 11 cases of the Wuhan coronavirus could be traced back to the Sept. 29 presidential debate. The cases were a result of debate pre-planning and set-up, with the majority of cases impacting out-of-state travelers, particularly debate organizers and members of the media. The news comes after President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for the virus. Out of an abundance of caution, the president was transported to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday. "As the cases involve people in and out of state some of whom may be...
