    Hillary Clinton’s campaign is touting some “eye-popping” advantages in early voting, in an apparent effort to energize Democratic voters, but preliminary figures suggest the race remains tighter than her aides acknowledge. The preliminary numbers appear to show Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, with an edge in several of the roughly 10 battleground states that will decide the 2016 White House race. “We're seeing eye-popping vote-by-mail application numbers,” Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said on “Fox News Sunday.” In Arizona and North Carolina, for example, more registered Democrats than Republicans have indeed cast early ballots. But such numbers are open to...

    Nevertheless, in an email to GOP insiders Sunday, Borges announced he would be supporting the party's presidential nominee in the upcoming election, citing his overwhelming concern about a Hillary Clinton presidency. "I will be supporting a straight Republican ticket – starting with Donald Trump for president," he wrote, in an email obtained by the Cincinnati Enquirer. "A Hillary Clinton presidency would be a disaster for our country." "The prospect of her winning is just unacceptable to me," he later added in a statement.

In his first public campaign stop in the Buckeye State, Donald Trump Jr. said his father will overcome the lack of support from officials such as Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Rob Portman because he appeals directly to the people. “This is a year for change. This is a time where everyone is sick of their politicians as usual,” he told The Dispatch...

    Hillary Clinton will meet with Black Lives Matter activists in Cleveland on Friday, including DeRay Mckesson and Brittany Packnett. An aide told The Associated Press that Clinton and the activists will discuss how to "advance equity and opportunity in the African-American community." Clinton sat with Black Lives Matter protesters around this same time last year for a conversation that Mckesson described as "tough," but "in the end I felt heard." Clinton has been met with suspicion by critics of former President Bill Clinton's 1994 crime bill, which contributed to high incarceration rates of black people for nonviolent crimes. —Jeva Lange

Trump toned down his attacks on John Kasich, who challenged him in the primaries, after Borges told him it would be political suicide to pick on Ohio's popular governor. And when Borges believes the New York businessman has gone too far, he doesn't mince words. The two speak frequently by telephone and when Trump campaigns in the Buckeye State.

    Here are some numbers from Montgomery County, OH, a key OH county won by Democrats for the past four elections, if only narrowly. First some caveats: this is today, and things can change. They did in 2014, when the Rs built up a big lead, then lost it for the rest of the election. But more important, Ohio law says that anyone who does not vote in primary is tossed into the “unaffiliated/independent” classification. 2012 R 13,356 D 12,630 I 9,622 2016 R 17,465 D 14,156 I 4,528 This is in large part why some of us—me in particular—were not...

    RUSH: Now Hillary has pulled out of Ohio, and the New York Times dutifully says, "That's okay! Ohio doesn't matter anymore." I've got it right here. "Ohio, Long a Bellwether, Is Fading on the Electoral Map." You know why? 'Cause it's too white. Ohio is no longer the great predictor. Ohio is no longer the great indicator. It used to be that you couldn't win the presidency without winning Ohio, because Ohio had collectively a microcosm of the country's population. But now? Now Ohio doesn't matter, since Hillary is not doing well there -- and they say (paraphrased), "It's just...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio – The union representing Cleveland's rank-and-file police officers voted overwhelming Friday to endorse Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. The Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association voted 216-68 to endorse Trump over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. The balloting process took 12 hours, union president Steve Loomis said in a statement to members. Several officers told this week that they worried a vote to endorse Trump could risk eroding the relationship between officers and minority communities. The department has been working to rebuild those relationships after a series of controversial deaths involving police.

    PORT CLINTON, Ohio - Every few minutes, the glass door of the Ottawa County Republicans' storefront office would swing open to admit a blast of humid air and another supplicant. Word had gone forth: Headquarters had a new shipment. "We just got a bunch, and were we ever tickled," Carolyn Adams, the county chairwoman, said one afternoon last week. "The first time, they only sent us 50, and they were gone in less than 24 hours. People were desperate." Now she could meet the demand for Donald Trump yard signs, and it was steady - one street-level indicator that the...

    The New York Times, the so-called “paper of record,” has declared that the all-important swing state of Ohio is no longer an important battleground in the presidential election — now that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is winning it. Trump pulled ahead of Clinton in the Buckeye State in the RealClearPolitics poll average on Sep. 13, and has never looked back. The latest average, as of Sep. 24 — prior to the first presidential debate on Sep. 26 — has Trump ahead of Clinton by 2%. Now that Trump is winning the “must-win,” the Times has revised its view of...

    On September 26, Ohio Secretary of State John Husted announced that this year's OH absentee requests stood at 805,844. This was more than 82,000 more than requested in 2004. (Ohio's population fell by 24,000 since then!) As of yet, we don't know what the returns are, but in 2012 they were 93% of mailed absentee requests were returned, and those that included walk in absentee requests reached 95% total. Overall, 1,966,308 absentees were mailed in OH in 2012, over 1/3 of the total. Now, we don't yet know who voted, but we will soon. I have a source who knows...
