    Authorities say a man took his own life at an eastern Ohio courthouse moments after he was sentenced to 13 years in prison. Jefferson County prosecutor Jane Hanlin says 42-year-old Jason Binkiewicz was being led out of the courtroom by a deputy Friday when he got away and threw himself over the building’s third floor banister. He was then pronounced dead. […] Binkiewicz was sentenced on attempted murder and felony assault charges after he was found guilty in July of shooting a man in the face. …

Grimes has also been a Clinton campaign surrogate in Iowa, speaking on behalf of the Democratic presidential nominee at the state’s annual Wing Ding dinner on Aug. 12. Clinton holds a wider polling margin in Ohio, where she leads Trump by nearly 5 points in a head-to-head with GOP nominee Donald Trump and by 4 percent in a four-way with Libertarian and Green Party candidates included, according to Real Clear Politics’ average...

    CBS Marketwatch ^ | Published: Aug 26, 2016 7:39 a.m. ET | Brett Arends
    Donald Trump now needs a swing of only 3 to 4 percentage points in key battleground states to win this election. The rule is simple: Throw lots of mud and see what sticks. It works. For instance, Trump just called for a “special prosecutor” to investigate the Clinton Foundation: It made for a good headline . The key issue here is how Trump is polling in context. He has just gone through almost a month of terrible campaign news. Yet he remains within a 4-point swing of winning in battleground states. That should be terrifying for Team Clinton. No wonder...

    A Cincinnati appeals court Tuesday dealt a blow to Democrats as it overturned a ruling that would have resurrected the so-called Golden Week, in which Ohioans may simultaneously register and cast a ballot. [ ] Voting 2-1, a panel of the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals held that the General Assembly’s law shortening the early vote calendar does not discriminate against particular blocs of voters. [ ] “The state election regulation at issue allows early in-person voting for 29 days before Election Day,” he wrote. “This is really quite generous. The law is facially neutral; it offers early voting...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — A condemned Ohio killer who survived a 2009 botched execution is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to declare that a second attempt to put him to death would be unconstitutional. Lawyers for death row inmate Romell Broom argue that giving the state prisons agency a second chance would amount to cruel and unusual punishment and double jeopardy. 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...

Polling released in the past few days — including a Monmouth University survey of Ohio released on Monday — confirms that Portman is not being swamped by the anti-GOP sentiment Trump is stirring up. The Monmouth poll found Trump down by 4 percentage points and Portman ahead by 8. The new Monmouth survey is in line with the...

In the last two weeks, I saw one Trump bumper sticker in the parking lot of a grocery store, one Trump window-cling on a pickup truck on the highway, and one "I heart Hillary" bumper sticker at a rest stop. That's it. Four years ago, in August 2012, Romney and Obama bumper stickers were plentiful. It's a similar story with yard signs. A handful of Trump signs sprouted up during...

    Hillary Clinton has received a small convention bounce, lifting the Democratic nominee back into a narrow lead over Donald Trump across 11 swing states, according to the latest wave of the YouGov/CBS News 2016 Battleground Tracker. The findings are part of the latest installment of a panel study polling likely voters in competitive states before and after each party’s nominating convention. In the latest survey, Clinton receives the support of 43% of likely voters, a two-point post-convention bounce equal to the two-point bounce Donald Trump received last week.
