A divided Ohio Supreme Court rejected Broom's arguments in March. Broom's attorneys appealed that ruling earlier this month to the U.S. Supreme Court and filed notice of that appeal on Monday with the state court. The state stopped Broom's execution...

    A "divider" like GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump will have a hard time winning Ohio, an important battleground that could help decide the election in November, said Buckeye State Gov. John Kasich, a former Republican presidential candidate. "Ohio's a snapshot of the country. People in Ohio want to see a positive agenda, a positive way to move forward," Kasich said Friday in an interview at the Union League of Philadelphia. He attended a fund-raiser for Brian Fitzpatrick, a Bucks County Republican running for an open congressional seat. Kasich's remarks came a day after Trump accepted the Republican Party's nomination at...

Did the demonstrators not want to risk getting shot during one of their assaults?

    Huge salute to law enforcement working the RNC. I was deeply concerned violence would visit the convention in some way. Excellent job by all keeping attendees and the protestors safe. Free Speech in a proper and peaceful (with a few exceptions) was allowed. We had law and order AND our Constitutional rights on display. May God be with these men and women and may we, with His mercy and grace, heal this great land!
