Bernie Sanders

A new poll found Ohioans approve of Gov. Mike DeWine’s response to the coronavirus pandemic so far.

Administered by Baldwin Wallace University, the poll looked at attitudes of registered voters ahead of the 2020 election in four Midwestern states: Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Researchers originally aimed to assess attitudes on racism, sexism and environmentalism, said Baldwin Wallace Community Research Institute Assistant Director Lauren Copeland, but pivoted to focus on the coronavirus at the last minute.

Two campaign rallies planned in Cleveland Tuesday evening were canceled due to concerns over coronavirus. Three cases of COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus, have been confirmed in Ohio and all three are in Cuyahoga County. 

Joe Biden said Governor Mike DeWine asked the candidates to cancel the events due to concerns about the spread of the illness. Biden was to rally at Cuyahoga Community College. The governor has urged people to avoid such large indoor gatherings where germs can easily spread.  

Mayor Andrew Ginther and raft of other Central Ohio Democrats endorsed Joe Biden in Columbus on Monday.

The Democratic National Committee says the next debate in Westerville will be held on one night, October 15th.

While the DNC had blocked off two nights, it says only October 15 will be needed because no other candidate is close to qualifying by the October 1 deadline. Candidates must get at least 2% in four DNC approved polls and have at least 130,000 unique donors. And the bar gets higher to reach in the next debate.

Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders made two stops in Ohio over the weekend as part of his "Protecting Working Families Tour" to condemn the GOP tax plan that passed the Senate early Saturday morning.

Former Ohio Sen. Nina Turner addressed a crowd in downtown Akron Saturday night before Bernie Sanders took the stage. That followed another joint appearance in Dayton and a livestream address by Sanders to a crowd in Louisville, Ky.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders discussed the concerns swirling around the Trump Administration last night at a CNN town hall.

Kasich and Sanders addressed the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey, the Russian hacking scandal and how President Donald Trump revealed classified information to a Russian foreign minister in a meeting last week.

I don't think we're there. I don't think that we know exactly what happened. The Russian investigation is very, very important.

Some backers of Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders are turning their eyes to Ohio’s gubernatorial race in 2018. As Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports, the group is focusing on Ohio's most-prominent Sanders' backer, Nina Turner.

One of the activists with Ohio Revolution, a group that backed Sanders, wants former state lawmaker Nina Turner to run for governor. Puja Datta is working to draft Turner, saying the former state senator from Cleveland is just what the Democratic party needs right now.

President Barack Obama came to Cleveland today to campaign for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

The president laid out the arguments for Clinton during a rally at Burke Lakefront Airport. He focused on her experience and knowledge compared to what he described as Republican nominee Donald Trump’s cynical attacks on democracy during this campaign.

Obama then deployed a bit of flattery on his youthful audience.
