With Bernie Sanders out of the race, Joe Biden is assured of being the Democratic presidential nominee. This week, Biden won the endorsement of Senator Sherrod Brown.

Brown says Biden will fight for workers and address the things Bernie Sanders wanted to—like student debt and climate change. He says  Sanders supporters should find it easy to back Biden.

"There may be some slight differences between Vice President Biden and Senator Sanders, but the differences more than anything are in style. They’re not substance," Brown said.

The presidential race has crystallized to a contest between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, after Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) ended his bid Wednesday. 

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 fourth Democratic debate was a long one, about three hours, and ended after 11 p.m. ET.

You might not have made it through the whole thing, but there were some potentially consequential moments.

Here are six takeaways:

1. The scrutiny came for Warren, and her vulnerabilities were exposed some

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was under fire Tuesday night from several opponents, and when that happens to a candidate, you know they're a front-runner.

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.

President Trump said Wednesday that the push for his impeachment is a "hoax," again denying any wrongdoing during a July call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy during which he pushed for an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, a potential 2020 rival.

"No push, no pressure, no nothing — it's all a hoax, folks. It's all a big hoax," Trump said.
