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.

Office of Governor John Kasich

WASHINGTON (AP) — John Kasich is criticizing Hillary Clinton for saying Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder should resign over the lead-contaminated water in Flint, Michigan.

Campaigning in Snyder's state, Kasich says Clinton's remarks in Sunday's Democratic debate that Snyder should resign or be recalled are "the definition of gall." He's suggesting Clinton is hypocritical without offering specifics.

"Of all the people in the world to call on someone to resign," Kasich says, adding, "we'll get to that in the fall."

Ohio Delegate Discusses Convention Prep Process

Aug 21, 2008

First-time Democratic delegate Jerry Sutton started his journey to Denver back in January of 2008. He participated in a congressional district caucus in the 7th District of Ohio.

"Historically, our perception about what goes on at national conventions is viewed through the soda straw of the TV set, and the commentary that goes along with it. So I wanted to get involved," Sutton said.

Sutton was voted into his position at the caucus in January as a pledged delegate for Hillary Clinton. Each candidate for president receives several delegates, according to Sutton.
