Campaign reports due today
Other headlines:  Cleveland fast food workers strike; Police have suspect in Bucyrus killings

  • Cleveland fast food workers on strike
  • Police have suspect in Bucyrus killings
  • Campaign reports due today
    Ohio candidates running for statewide offices are expected to report the money their campaigns raised last month.  A campaign finance deadline today requires candidates disclose their August contributions, but not expenses. So it won't be fully known how much money they have in the bank until mid-October, just before the election.  Republicans hold all statewide offices in Ohio and have held a fundraising edge in terms of cash on hand to spend on their races.  The last monthly campaign finance report showed that incumbent Gov. John Kasich had raised about four times as much campaign cash as his Democratic challenger Ed Fitzerald over that reporting period.

     

    Fast-food workers strike

    In Cleveland and all across the country, fast-food workers went on strike this morning, pushing for a $15 an hour minimum wage.  In Cleveland, home health care workers joined in today’s protest.  Anthony Caldwell,  the head of S-E-I-U district 1199 tells Cleveland.com that the two share the same plight, with home health aides earning a median salary of $8.39 an hour.  The National Restaurant Association released a statement calling the strikes quote - “nothing more than labor groups' self-interested attempts to boost their dwindling membership."

     

    Police have suspect in Bucyrus killings

    A man has been charged with aggravated murder in the deaths of four men whose bodies were found in separate homes in a small Ohio town.  Charges against 41-year-old Donald Hoffman were announced during a court hearing this morning in Bucyrus, about 65 miles north of Columbus. Authorities say the men were found dead in their homes earlier this week. All suffered blunt force trauma.
