    Early in her speech Friday at Cuyahoga Community College’s metro campus, Hillary Clinton said, “ In the first four days of in-person, early voting here in Ohio, more people showed up to vote than they did at the same time in 2012 in our last election.(snip) First, the five counties cited by Wyant are simply the five biggest in Ohio, so their lead in mail-in ballot requests is a bit of a no-duh. And what’s not said is that early vote requests overall so far are lagging the pace from four years ago. In fact, in Ohio counties carried by...

    Former Republican presidential candidate and Ohio Gov. John Kasich is hitting back against the claim that the election is “rigged” -- an allegation that GOP nominee Donald Trump has repeatedly made in recent days. When asked in an interview with “CBS This Morning” early Wednesday whether he believed Trump’s assertion of a cooked election was correct, Kasich replied with an emphatic “no.” “Look, to say that elections are rigged and all these votes are stolen -- that’s like saying we never landed on the moon, frankly,” said Kasich. “That’s how silly it is.” The Ohio governor further criticized Trump’s position...

Supporters gathered at Warren and Pat Tipton’s home to hear the mayor at an event to promote early voting. Mr. de Blasio, who ran Mrs. Clinton’s 2000 Senate campaign, said those are the qualities voters should value. “And that’s what I want in a president,” he said. “I think we need to really dwell on that.

Anger and hostility were the most overwhelming sentiments at a Trump rally in Cincinnati last week, a deep sense of frustration, an us-versus-them mentality, and a belief that they are part of an unstoppable and underestimated movement. Unlike many in the country, however, these hard-core Trump followers do not believe the real estate mogul’s misfortunes are of his own making. They believe what Trump has told them over and over, that this election is rigged, and if he loses, it will be because of a massive conspiracy to take him down.

Two staffers directly involved in the GOP's efforts in Virginia confirmed the decision. The move to pull out of Virginia shows Trump is "running essentially a four state campaign," with the focus now shifting to battlegrounds critical to his chances in November: Pennsylvania, Florida, North...

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.

    When asked to explain why the father would shoot his own daughter, family members blamed a medical condition; they said Mansour is a diabetic. Yes, that’s it — diabetes. And not only did no one in the media question this, they actually deliberated whether the medical case could be made. That’s how sick, broken and subdued our fourth estate has become. “Neighbors: Family ‘kept to themselves’ at home where police say dad shot his daughter”, FOX 19, By Denise Zarrella, Reporter, September 27th 2016: ROCKY RIVER, OH (WOIO) – A 63-year-old father is facing murder, felonious assault, and domestic violence...

    Rep. Marcia Fudge (D., Ohio) discredited multiple polls conducted in Ohio that show Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton in the Buckeye State during an interview Wednesday with MSNBC’s Tamron Hall. Hall cited “actual, credible polls” that have Trump beating Clinton in the key battleground state, despite the lack of an endorsement from Republican Gov. John Kasich. . . . Fudge reiterated that she did not know who they were polling, but they were not polling voters in her county. “When our people vote, they are going to vote for her,” she said. “So, I don’t know how the poll–who they’re...

    A federal judge ruled Monday that a school district in Ohio must treat a transgender boy “like the girl she is” and allow him unfettered access to a girl’s bathroom, according to local reports.

    A federal judge rejected a school district's challenge to President Barack Obama's rule on transgender bathrooms on Monday, ordering a biologically male student who identifies as female be treated "like the girl she is." Judge Algenon Marbley said the Highland Local Schools in Morrow County had failed to provide a persuasive argument that giving the student access to the girls' restroom would jeopardize other students' privacy or safety. He further ordered that Highland use a female name and pronouns in referring to the 11-year-old.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: The polls have tightened, I know that, anybody knows that, anybody following this. In fact, there's a story out there describing all of this, and the headline is, "Presidential Race Now a Dead Heat." That's not what the headline ought to be. The headline ought to be "Trump Surges in Polls as Hillary's Huge Lead Fails," because that's the story. The story is not that they're in a dead heat. The story is that Hillary is fading and plummeting. Hillary had a huge lead coming out of her convention and it is gone. Depending on the poll,...
