Ohio Republicans try to regroup in crucial state for Trump

CINCINNATI (AP) - Complications pummeled Ohio Republicans this week as they sought to put up a united front headed into the GOP's national convention.

One of their best-known politicians threw his support behind Democrat Joe Biden, their Republican state attorney general challenged the Trump administration, and President Donald Trump himself took on an iconic Ohio company in an area of the state where loyalties to job security ran higher than loyalties to party four years ago.

With early voting set to begin in less than seven weeks, Democrats are enthused about their possibilities in a state crucial to Trump, one he carried by 8 points over Hillary Clinton in 2016.

It's a striking turnaround for a party that just last year was wondering if the one-time swing state - with 18 electoral votes - had moved out of its reach.

Since Trump faced Clinton, Democrats have seen progress in the 2018 midterm and 2019 local elections, including in key suburban areas.
Trump's call Wednesday to boycott the Akron-based Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, while inaccurately claiming the company had announced a ban of Make America Great Again hats, gives the party new material as it tries to return struggling blue-collar workers to the fold.

Jane Timken, the Republican Party chair who ousted an ally of former Gov.

John Kasich from that job, was dismissive of Kasich's speech endorsing Biden at the Democratic National Convention and expects Trump's momentum to build.

"I feel pretty good," she told The Associated Press. "The president has a 95% approval rating among Republicans and, aside from folks like John Kasich, who was a never-Trumper, I think the rest of the party is very united and excited about re-electing President Trump."
