We’re still waiting to hear which Ohio city will host the Democratic presidential candidates for a debate October 15th.

Just ten of the 20 remaining candidates qualified for the debate that will be held next Thursday, Sept. 12 in Houston. Ohio congressman Tim Ryan (D-OH 13th) is not among them. But he remains in the race at this point.

Whoever ends up as the nominee, Senator Sherrod Brown is confident he or she will unseat President Donald Trump.

Youngstown area Democratic Congressman Tim Ryan visited Akron Monday to speak to the Press Club. He brought with him some stark warnings.

Ryan said Americans need to start listening to one another to heal, and strengthen the country. If we don’t, Russia and China will grow stronger, while the U.S. loses ground. Ryan said politicians need to recognize that.

The last car rolled off the assembly line at the General Motors Lordstown plant Wednesday and nearly all employees worked their last shift Friday.

Lordstown GM team member John DeGarmo has worked at four GM plants over the last thirteen years. He said working for the company is in his blood.

“But I look around and, you know, I’m in the Lordstown facility right now because it’s my last day of work, and, you know, it’s turning into a ghost town," he said. "And then nobody’s holding these companies accountable.”
