An Ohio legislative panel has delayed a vote on repealing a contentious new election law that shrinks early voting and makes other changes in the presidential battleground state.
Backed by Republicans, the Senate bill would scrap the new law and leave in place the old rules governing Ohio elections - including a separate change made last year that cuts off in-person early voting on the Friday before Election Day.

The following audio contains addresses from Mandel and Rubio to a crowd of 300 in the Berry Room located at Wright State University's Nutter Center.
