Share Tweet Share Email Comments Print ADVERTISEMENT THE DEMOCRATIC nominee for governor, Richard Cordray, has upped his game in the last two weeks with a flurry of issue attacks on the Republican nominee. Whether Mr. Cordray has created the kind of momentum that could carry him through to victory on Nov. 6 over Republican Mike DeWine isn’t indicated by polling so far. The key event that has changed the intensity of the campaign was the debate last week at the University of Dayton. Ohio Democratic gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray has upped his game following last week’s debate, but will it be enough to bring a blue wave to Ohio? Associated Press Enlarge In that debate, and since then, Mr. Cordray has moved away from the lovable nerd image he has created, mostly in social media, and has gone after Mr. DeWine with more targeted attacks. Those are over Mr. DeWine’s record in fighting the opioid epidemic, and whether he has gone too … [Read more...] about Tom Troy: New Richard Cordray making Ohio’s governors race close

Ask any candidate for Congress in Minnesota this year about health care, and they’re almost certain to tell you it’s one of the most important issues in their districts — if not the single most important issue. Opinion polling backs that up: a recent CBS News poll found that 70 percent of Americans think health care is a very important issue, a larger share than any other top issue. A similar conclusion has been reached by plenty of other polls conducted over the last few months, which also find that health care is foremost in voters’ minds, even above the economy and headline-grabbing topics like immigration. Just because seemingly everyone agrees health care should be a top focus, though, doesn’t mean they agree on what parts of the issue to focus on: for the most part, Democratic and Republican candidates are telling voters very different stories when it comes to the politics of health care. In Minnesota and elsewhere, Democrats are making health care a … [Read more...] about Voters consistently rank health care as their top political concern. What does that mean for Minnesota’s House races?
Don Siegelman might have only been half-joking when he said Wednesday that he was "banned" from his son's campaign for Alabama Attorney General. "Joseph wants to do this on his own," said Siegelman, 72, who was the last Democrat to win a governor's race in Alabama in 1998. "Most of my ideas and all of the techniques I used to get elected are, like, passe," said Siegelman, who was with his son during a campaign event Wednesday inside a jazz and blues club south of Fairhope. "This younger generation, they have this grassroots movement flowing through digital media and all these different (tools) such as Snapchat and Twitter to reach people." He added, "I have tried to offer advice when I thought it was helpful. But I mostly stay out of the way." Said Joseph Siegelman, "I love my father. I'm proud to be his son. As an unofficial adviser, he's great. I give him a hard time that he has a bad habit of following me around the campaign trail. But it's great to be around him on occasions." … [Read more...] about Don Siegelman stumps for son in attorney general’s race
