This past weekend Springfield played host to a debate between economic advisors for both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

The debate featured Peter Navarro, a Trump campaign economic advisor and Austan Goolsbee, former senior economic policy advisor for Barack Obama and current Clinton campaign consultant.   Both men presented their candidate’s economic platforms including plans to bring jobs and prosperity back to the region.

LeBron James has given Hillary Clinton an assist.

The NBA superstar, who helped end Cleveland's championship drought earlier this summer by winning a title with the Cavaliers, is backing Clinton for president. James believes Clinton can do more to help at-risk kids like he once was, saying she's the only candidate who "truly understands the struggles of an Akron child born into poverty."

Just hours after she was named the first female presidential nominee of a major political party, Democrat Hillary Clinton took a bus tour through Pennsylvania and Ohio.  Yesterday, she stopped in Columbus. 

A few thousand people stood in the blazing hot sun for more than three hours to hear Clinton and her new Vice Presidential pick, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine.

Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine will head out of Philadelphia Friday and toward the key swing-state of Ohio officially beginning of the general election campaign.

After a rally in Philadelphia, Clinton is heading to Harrisburg, Pittsburgh and then onto Youngstown and Columbus over the weekend.

As the DNC was wrapping up, Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper said that the stop in Youngstown is key.

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton brought her campaign back to Ohio today with a stop at Cincinnati's Union Terminal.  

Some 26-hundred people packed the Museum Center rotunda to hear Hillary Clinton talk about her newly released economic plan. Maria Schade of Cincinnati especially likes Clinton's goal of making debt-free college available to everyone.

“I have two daughters, one who’s twelve and one who’s fifteen so, they’re heading in that direction. I was really excited about that,” She said. “I was also excited that she’s looking out for families.”

The likely Democratic presidential nominee, former Secretary of State, New York Senator and first lady was in Columbus earlier today/yesterday talking about business and economics.

The nearly 90 degree heat didn’t keep supporters of Hillary Clinton from filling a building at a Columbus area high school. The room didn’t have air conditioning but that didn’t stop some repeat Hillary attendees such as retired teacher Jane Boyer of Upper Arlington.

Hillary Clinton has won the Democratic presidential primary in Ohio, earning her third win in Tuesday's quintet of contests.

Clinton already scored victories in Florida and North Carolina, earning 175 additional delegates before winning Ohio.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich has scored his first win of the presidential nomination contest, grabbing all 66 delegates in the Ohio primary, in what could ultimately stall Donald Trump's decisive dash to the nomination.

The Democratic candidates battling for the party’s nomination have made it clear that Ohio is the state to win in Tuesday's next set of primaries. Ohio Public Radio’s Andy Chow reports on the huge push both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are making in the state.

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders and Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton laid out their case to Ohio voters in a blitz of events around the state. And both candidates had a chance to tap into the center of the party by speaking to its most faithful supporters during the Ohio Democratic Party’s Legacy dinner.

Most superdelegates in the Ohio Democratic party have already pledged to support Hillary Clinton at the party’s convention. But a few say they’ll wait until after the Ohio primary on March 15 to decide.

Ohio has 143 delegates to dole out through the Democratic primary, plus 16 superdelegates who can choose whom they'll support.

Presidential candidates are making a big push to win Ohio and its large share of delegates—and Vermont Senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders faces a tough battle in the state. His rival Hillary Clinton is ahead in the overall delegate count, and polls show she could win the Ohio Democratic primary again, as she did in 2008. Sanders won narrowly in Michigan's March 8 primary, while Clinton took the overwhelming majority of Mississippi delegates.

But Sanders says his strategy to crack down on trade deals that send jobs out of the country will resonate with Ohio voters.
