Republicans Pick Cleveland for 2016 Convention

On Tuesday, the Republican National Committee (RNC) announced that it had chosen heavily Democratic Cleveland to host its 2016 national convention.

Ohio Dems Win Big in 2013

The 2013 election can be summed up in five words: “Overwhelming losses for Kasich’s friends.” Ohio voters punished Republicans at the local level for their recent attacks on workers, women, and push to shift the tax burden onto the middle class.
