    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has weighed in on the weekend's violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, castigating Donald Trump without naming him. 'We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-nazis,' McConnell said in a statement. The choice of words, while careful, appeared to push back against Trump's claim on Tuesday that some 'very fine people' were among a crowd of white supremacists who rallied in the college town. McConnell's wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, stood next to Trump on Tuesday as he insisted both sides of the weekend's clash bore some responsibility for...

    Ohio officials have granted a woman's request to have President Donald Trump's mysterious tweeted typo, "covfefe," on her license plate. Brittany Scott tells The Columbus Dispatch in May she saw a Twitter post by Trump that read: "Despite the constant negative press covfefe." The 29-year-old Cortland woman says she wrote in her application that her request stemmed from a tweet from the 45th president of the United States, and the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles approved it. Scott says she hasn't received any complaints online or from fellow motorists. A bureau committee examines hundreds of applications each day for vanity...

    The top three US hospitals for cardiology and heart surgery are the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio (number 1), the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN (number 2), and New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City (number 3), according to US News & World Report latest rankings.

The remainder of the top 10 hospitals for cardiology and heart surgery got shuffled around a bit this year, compared with last year. Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA holds the number 4 spot this year, up from number 10 last...

    The 18-year-old man killed Wednesday when a thrill ride broke apart at the Ohio State Fair had joined the Marines less than a week before the tragedy. The Ohio State Highway Patrol identified the lone person who was killed Thursday as Tyler Jarrell of Columbus. Seven others, who ranged in age from 14 to 42 years old, were injured when the Fire Ball ride malfunctioned and sent riders flying into the air. The Marine Corps said in a statement that Jarrell, 18, enlisted on July 21 and wanted to be in the infantry or serve as a combat engineer. He...

    Dozens of House Democrats have collectively paid $4 million since 2009 to Pakistani IT professionals now under criminal investigation who had access to House members' email and computer files. Capitol Police is investigating whether five members of the Awan family from Pakistan engaged in criminal activity, including theft, as computer administrators for dozens of House Democrats, some of whom serve on the intelligence, homeland security, and foreign affairs committees. Democratic members from multiple committees "were inexplicably paying" the suspects who "they rarely or never saw," the Daily Caller News Foundation reported Wednesday. The suspects–brothers Imran, Abid, and Jamal, and two...

    At least one other person was in stable condition after ride malfunction on the Fire Ball ride. Video and a witness at the scene show that the ride spun strapped-in fair-goers around a central point and hoisted up them in the air. Justin Eckard, a 40-year-old at the fair with his family, told the Daily News that the ride was in "full swing" when a car detached and crashed to the ground. Eckard said that the car flew off into an area near the ride, which was shut down as those left on it began to panic. He said that...

    Senator Rob Portman believes that Obamacare must be repealed and replaced with reforms that will actually lower costs and improve the quality of our health care. According to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, the health care law the Democrats shoved through Congress in 2009 will slow economic growth over the next decade, cost 2.5 million jobs, and contribute a trillion dollars to the deficit. The Obamacare rollout has been disastrous, filled with technical glitches and poor management. But the problems with the Obamacare law are much worse than a just few glitches. President Obama promised that if you liked your...

The rally will be 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 25, at the Covelli Centre.

The dinnertime discussion hadn’t been disclosed until Tuesday. No other American officials were there. The president called this "fake news" and "sick" on Twitter, and made the false claim that...

    LITTLE HOCKING, Ohio (Reuters) - While revelations that Donald Trump Jr. welcomed Russian help in last year's presidential election roil Washington, asking about it along southern Ohio's Appalachian Highway can draw some pretty strange looks. In the mostly rural, heavily Baptist and predominately Trump-supporting terrain, the collective reaction ranges from ignorance about the Russia investigation, to a belief that some media want to destroy Republican President Donald Trump and his family, to complete disinterest. Many of the 20 people interviewed in several Ohio towns were dismissive of the barrage of headlines about a June 2016 meeting between Trump's eldest son...

    A woman is dead and eight other people were wounded — including three kids — after a baby gender-reveal party in Ohio erupted in gunfire Saturday night, according to reports. Among the victims in the Colerain Township shooting was a pregnant woman who lost the baby after receiving a bullet to her leg, a family member told NBC affiliate WLWT. Authorities were searching for the assailant or assailants, who fled after shots rang out at a home around 11:30 p.m. Five of the revelers — one in critical condition, three in fair and one stable — were hospitalized at the...

    “Sanctuary cities” across the country are pledging to make one million immigrants into U.S. citizens this year, partly as a response to the policies of President Donald Trump.

Announced on Flag Day, the Examiner reports: [t]he ‘Naturalize NOW!’ campaign, which includes liberal and progressive groups and elected officials, heralded the mayors of the cities in joining the national effort.

    HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - Butler County Sheriff Richard K. Jones said his deputies don't use Narcan now and never will under his watch, despite its effectiveness in reversing the effects of heroin overdoses. He is the only southwestern Ohio sheriff whose department doesn't use it. Deputies in Hamilton, Clermont and Warren counties all carry Narcan. Drug overdoses continue to be the leading cause of death in Butler County, according to the coroner, and the county is on track to break last year's record for the highest number of overdose deaths.
