Ohio, referred to as a critically important swing state in a presidential election, announced its largest newspaper, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, endorsed President Barack Obama’s reelection.
The Plain Dealer Editorial Board writes:
Today, we recommend President Obama’s re-election. He has led the nation back from the brink of depression. Ohio in particular has benefited from his bold decision to revive the domestic auto industry. Because of his determination to fulfill a decades-old dream of Democrats, 30 million more Americans will soon have health insurance. His Race to the Top initiative seeded many of the education reforms embodied in Cleveland’s Transformation Plan. He ended the war in Iraq and refocused the battle to disrupt Al Qaeda and its terrorist allies. He ordered the risky attack inside Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden.
If the newspaper endorsement of a candidate in a presidential race still holds water then please let it be true in Ohio because no Republican candidate has ever won the presidency without winning Ohio.
