Last month, President Donald Trump headlined the Ohio Republican Party’s annual state dinner.  Now, the Ohio Democratic Party has also chosen a high-profile speaker for its annual event.

U.S. Senator Kamala Harris of California, an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump and Republicans, will speak at the Ohio Democratic Party’s annual legacy dinner. Party spokesman David DeWitt says Harris talks about issues that Democrats care about, especially in a big midterm election year.

Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan is hopeful about the tentative trade agreement between the United States and Mexico announced by President Trump Monday.

The President has been working to improve the 24-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement, commonly known as NAFTA.

The new agreement aims to increase the percentage of vehicle components made in North America, from 62.5 percent to 75 percent. 

During an interview on NPR’s Morning Edition, Congressman Ryan, a known critic of NAFTA, questioned whether Trump would follow through on these changes.

Arizona senator and former Republican presidential nominee John McCain died Saturday at the age of 81.

McCain leaves behind his wife of more than three decades, Cindy; seven children, including three from his first marriage, to Carol Shepp; and his 106-year-old mother, Roberta McCain.
