    Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) said on Sunday that the Republican Party is "losing the future" by turning off millennials. "I look at Alabama and I say people are not happy with us being small, angry and narrow," Kasich said on NBC News's "Meet the Press," referring to last week's special Senate election. "They're starting to say no. That means that most of us who believe in a positive party are beginning to win, but we have a long way to go." The Ohio governor also cited stances on various issues, such as immigration, health care and trade, that he...

    A female Democratic lawmaker on Wednesday reportedly said women who wear revealing clothing often create an “invitation” to sexual harassment. “I saw a member yesterday with her cleavage so deep it was down to the floor,” Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), 71, told fellow Democrats during a caucus private meeting meant to discuss sexual harassment issues, according to Politico. “And what I’ve seen … it’s really an invitation.” Politico’s unnamed sources said, “the comments left many others in the room stunned.” “Maybe I’ll get booed for saying this, but many companies and the military [have] a dress code,” Kaptur reportedly said....

    “It’s bad for football,” Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden said on ESPN during postgame coverage. “There’s going to be some fines, there’s going be some stringent discipline. Let’s just hope a lot of these men are able to get up tomorrow morning and move on with life. Some of this stuff got out of hand tonight. It’s very disgusting and disturbing.” Yahoo Sports’ Pat Forde was blunt in his assessment of the game while giving credit to the MNF team for their critical coverage of the violence. It was, however, a good night for ESPN. Sean McDonough minced no...

    Republican Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor said Thursday she would not drop out of the governor's race after the bombshell announcement that Attorney General Mike DeWine and Secretary of State Jon Husted would join together on a ticket. DeWine and Husted are both the fundraising and polling leaders in the GOP primary to succeed term-limited Gov. John Kasich. The two announced Thursday they would combine forces with DeWine running as governor and Husted as his number two. Speculation mounted that Taylor, who has lagged DeWine, Husted and U.S. Rep. Jim Renacci in campaign cash, would announce she was dropping out of...

    The messiness of the long-proverbial "mess in Washington" stands out this post-holiday week like a picked and evacuated turkey carcass. To itemize: 1) The tax debate, so-called. 2) The furor over who's to run the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau -- assuming you've heard of this enterprise, which is disliked by many on account of its claimed self-sufficiency and virtual non-accountability to the rest of the government. If we didn't know before that the federal government is too big for Republicans or Democrats, either one, to bring under control, my, oh, my, we should know it now. Let me rehearse the...

    A profile in The Times of Tony Hovater, a white nationalist and Nazi sympathizer in Ohio, elicited a huge amount of feedback this weekend, most of it sharply critical. Here’s how the piece came about, why we wrote it and why we think it was important to do so. The genesis of the story was the aftermath of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., in August, the terrifying Ku Klux Klan-like images of young white men carrying tiki torches and shouting “Jews will not replace us,” and the subsequent violence that included the killing of a woman, Heather D....

    Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) on Sunday said he hopes politicians “won’t play those kind of games” on dueling appointments to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). “My hope is, you know, that we won’t play those kind of games," Portman told NBC’s “Meet the Press” when asked about dueling appointments by Cordray and President Trump for interim directors of the independent agency. Portman backed Trump's authority to decide who will lead the agency, which is now without a director. Portman also criticized exiting CFPB director Richard Cordray for trying to "circumvent" the president in appointing a new leader of...

Caleb Hull at the Independent Journal Review reports that he has talked to 30 people who have had experience with Goodman’s homoerotic derring-do.
