“I personally believe its going to be a long shot to coax Ohio to vote Republican in a presidential contest again. And we all know what that means...”
it might mean that, like Illinois, Ohio quits growing, or has some population decline, and some of it’s jobs, and its workers move to places like Indiana, or Wisconsin; eventually making it less important electorally and strengthening how red other states are
“Here in Michigan Debbie Stabenow got more votes than Obama”
yes in many races, “all politics are local” reigns over party affiliation, party loyalty or party-line voting
without detailed analysis, it could appear as if either Hoekstra lost some GOP votes to Stabenow, or Obama lost some Dim votes to Romney, or some part of both of those things happened; suggesting some component of chosing NOT to vote the party-line on all the races
