The special election in Ohio featuring candidates Nina Turner and Shontel Brown has become a reportedly „acrimonious and bitter“ battle between the progressive and establishment wings of the Democratic party, as these factions go all out to support their preferred candidate. Journalists Eugene Robinson and Jeremy W. Peters join The ReidOut with their analysis.
South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, the third-ranking Democrat in the House, told CNN recently that Biden needed all the allies he could get in the House, a clear shot at Turner’s past negative comments about the 46th President.
Third Way, a centrist Democratic group, is spending $500,000 on a series of ads driving that same message.

With about 240,000 ballots mailed, that meant one in five voters received a wrong ballot. The error happened Saturday afternoon when someone changed a setting on a machine that places absentee ballots into mailing envelopes, Franklin County elections officials said Thursday.
Neither Biden or Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris have campaigned in person in Ohio during the general election. That’s a factor the president zeroed in on as he also slammed the latest polling in the state.
“I just saw that we’re tied in Ohio. I don’t think so,” Trump said Monday at a rally in the Toledo suburb of Swanton. “They’re not even campaigning in Ohio, come to think of it. Now, they’re fake polls. They’re almost as fake as the writers themselves. They’re all fake.”

The Ohio governor’s office said in a statement that the second test was a PCR test, which the office described as „extremely sensitive, as well as specific, for the virus.“ When DeWine was tested earlier in the day, an antigen test was used.
The PCR tests for both the governor and his wife were run twice, and came back negative both times, the office said.
While speaking with CNN, Jones said he has regularly worn a mask amid the pandemic. But he stressed that it „should be a choice“ and that law enforcement would not be involved in the new order’s enforcement.
„You shouldn’t have to wear a mask if you don’t want to. If you’re sick, that’s one thing,“ he said.

(10.3.2018) On „Fox & Friends“ on Saturday morning, Kucinich, who’s running for governor in Ohio, explained that steel has a $7.2 billion impact on The Buckeye State’s economy, with 100,000 jobs directly or indirectly connected to steel production.
„This is an important moment,“ Kucinich said. „Ohio’s lost so many jobs because of these bad trade agreements. Finally, we’re seeing a correction here.”
The results indicate Cordray may be struggling to catch on after a strong start both in fundraising and endorsements from figures around the state, while the upstart Kucinich’s aggressive campaign schedule and progressive views may be clicking with Democratic voters.
