Donald Trump is no Grover Cleveland

A version of this story appears in CNN’s What Matters newsletter. To get it in your inbox, sign up for free here. CNN  —  Former President Donald Trump wants to do a full Grover Cleveland and match the only US president to lose a presidential election and then rise from the ashes to regain the White House four years later. Other examples of former presidents trying to regain power have gone poorly. Theodore Roosevelt’s progressive rebellion split open a schism in the GOP; neither Herbert Hoover nor Martin Van Buren could get the Republican nomination after previous losses. So if Trump does indeed announce his third White House run, he’ll be trying to emulate Cleveland, who won, lost and then w...

Politics in Air as Biden Visits Future Intel Plant in Ohio

By AAMER MADHANI, JOSH BOAK and ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS, Associated PressNEW ALBANY, Ohio (AP) — President Joe Biden steered clear of partisan politics at Friday's groundbreaking celebration for a huge new computer chip facility in Ohio — as a tough Senate contest in that state and a Democratic candidate seeking to distance himself from Biden reflected the challenge of translating White House policy wins into political gains.Biden, a major force behind the legislation that helped lure Intel, went to suburban Columbus to take a victory lap just as voters in the state are starting to tune in to the Senate race between Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan and Republican author and venture capital executive JD Vance. They're competing in a former swing state that has trended Republican over the past decade.R...

Women Race Political Clock, Cross State Lines for Abortions

By LINDSEY TANNER AND PATRICK ORSAGOS, Associated PressDAYTON, OHIO (AP) — In the dim light of a clinic ultrasound room, Monica Eberhart reclines on an exam table as a nurse moves a probe across her belly. Waves of fetal cardiac activity ripple across the screen.“The heartbeat,” the nurse says. “About 10 weeks and two days.”Eberhart exhales. It’s good news. “That means I’m just under,” she says, raising her hands and crossing her fingers.The 23-year-old mother of three is racing a political clock. When she learned she was pregnant again, she decided abortion was her best choice — even if meant navigating a patchwork of state laws enacted since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.Political CartoonsHours after the ruling in late June, Ohio imposed a ban on abortions once cardiac activit...

Ohio Democratic rematch draws last-minute endorsements as candidates clash over progressive credentials

If Democratic voters feel a sense of deja vu Tuesday, it's for good reason. For the second time in less than a year, residents of Ohio's 11th Congressional District headed to the polls to decide between challenger Nina Turner and now-incumbent Rep. Shontel Brown. "Phone banking, text banking, door knocking, we're doing everything we can to call and make sure people are aware this election is happening," Brown told CBS News. The freshman lawmaker is defending her seat after defeating Turner by roughly six percentage points in a special election last November. Turner, a former state senator who also served as the co-chair of Sen. Bernie Sanders' 2020 presidential campaign, is also pulling out all the stops. She described herself as "unbought and unbossed" in the mold of the pioneerin...

J.D. Vance wins Republican Senate race after Trump endorsement

CBS News has projected J.D. Vance has won the Republican nomination for Senate in Ohio, after he soared to the lead when former President Donald Trump endorsed him. Most of the Republicans vying for the nomination for the open Senate seat sought Trump's endorsement, including former state Treasurer Josh Mandel, who ran as a pro-Trump politician. Ohio has long been seen as the perennial swing state. But Trump won the state by 8 points, and once  Vance won the former president's endorsement, his popularity  soared. A Fox News poll released last week, conducted after Trump endorsed,, showed Vance leading with 23%, over twice the 11% he had registered in a Fox News poll from early March. Vance was once a Trump critic, but earned the former president's endorsement by embracing Trump's views on ...

Trump’s endorsement power could be tested in Senate race

Ohio voters are going to the polls Tuesday in primaries for Senate, governor and some House seats, including a rematch between Rep. Shontel Brown and Nina Turner in Ohio's 11th district. The GOP Senate race looks to be a test of how much influence former President Trump's endorsement has on the party. Trump endorsed author and venture capitalist J.D. Vance in the Senate race over former state treasurer Josh Mandel, who had also sought his endorsement. Ohio had long been seen as the perennial swing state. But Trump won the state by 8 points, and Trump's endorsement of Vance caused his popularity to soar. A Fox News poll released last week, conducted after Trump's endorsement, showed Vance leading with 23%, up from 11% in a Fox News poll from early March. Vance was followed by Mandel (18%), ...
