Tomorrow is the day that Ohio holds its primary election. Needless to say, I will be voting for Bernie Sanders and hope he does well. The ACLU of Ohio has put out a three-step guide to voting.
The election has turned really ugly with violence breaking out at Donald Trump rallies which he has, as usual, responded to in a variety of ways, saying that they were caused by outside agitators (he fingers Bernie Sanders supporters) and saying that he would pay the legal bills of those of his supporters charged with violence. Sanders and Hillary Clinton have blasted him for the violence and his response, with Sanders calling him a ‘pathological liar’.
Meanwhile, Mitt Romney has been campaigning in the state for John Kasich who is locked in a close race with Trump. Whether this quasi-endorsement by Romney, coupled with the Marco Rubio campaign telling their supporters to vote for Kasich, will give the Kasich a sufficient boost to put him over the top remains to be seen. Kasich is increasingly being seen as the latest in the series of ‘establishment’ choices after the candidacies of Scott Walker, Jeb Bush, and Chris Christie imploded and since Marco Rubio’s star is now fading and he may well lose the primary in his home state of Florida, likely ending his campaign.
