It was a big year for the Ohio Supreme Court, with decisions on abortion, the death penalty and bobbleheads, and the final blow to what had been the state’s largest online charter school.

President Trump tweeted today about the woman who’s accusing his Supreme Court nominee of sexually assaulting her. The president says if the incident had occurred, there should have been charges filed.

Up to now, Trump has not commented on the accuser. University of Akron political scientist Dave Cohen says that was a better strategy.

“By the president interjecting himself it just reminds people not only of the actual thing that Judge Kavanaugh is being accused of, it also reminds people that the president himself has about 19 or so accusations against him.”

The Ohio Supreme Court has upheld the constitutionality of Ohio’s death penalty law.  Attorneys for 54-year old Maurice Mason claimed that since the U.S. Supreme Court threw out Florida’s death penalty because it gave execution sentencing power to judges and not juries, Ohio’s law is also unconstitutional. In Ohio, judges impose the actual sentence.

MOVE TO AMEND

If you go to a parade or public festival this weekend, you might see groups collecting signatures for a variety of issues. One is to try to limit campaign contributions.

The group Move to Amend Ohio has a problem with the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that allows a lot of money from unknown sources to fund political campaigns anonymously.

Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump met with conservative Christian leaders last week, but then went more than three days without addressing a major Supreme Court ruling that rejected abortion restrictions in Texas that are similar to ones in Ohio.

Donald Trump didn’t mention the Supreme Court ruling on Twitter or in campaign rallies. But days after it happened, he told a conservative talk show host that if he got to pick the Supreme Court justices, the ruling would’ve been different.

The battle over whether the Senate should vote on President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee has moved to the forefront of Ohio’s U.S. Senate race. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more on the battle that has energized both the Democrat and Republican bases.

Former Gov. and Democratic senatorial candidate Ted Strickland promises he’ll keep the issue going right through Election Day --  unless Rob Portman pushes for the Senate to hold hearings and vote on the nomination of Merrick Garland. And Strickland insists the issue is resounding with voters.

Gov. John Kasich was asked on by host Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday morning if the Senate should hold hearings on President Obama's U.S. Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland. Unlike the other GOP candidates, Kasich says there should be a meeting.

Gov. John Kasich was on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday morning, in an interview that had a few tense moments between the Republican presidential candidate and host Chuck Todd. Kasich shot back at Todd over questions about accepting the vice presidential slot, and about whether aiming toward a contested convention is a “parlor game."

  Kasich: “This isn't a parlor game of who gets this or who gets that.”

Todd: “But you're stuck with a parlor game—“

Kasich: “I believe - I want to tell you - “
