More Northeast Ohioans believe this summer’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland will have a long-term positive impact on the city. But at the same time fewer of them are excited about the event.  Those are the findings of a second Baldwin Wallace University survey on the RNC.

Gov. John Kasich’s exit from the Republican presidential campaign raises a lot of questions about his future and the future of his party.

When Gov. John Kasich dropped out of the race, he thanked everyone, including Ohioans.

“The people of Ohio have given me the greatest professional experience of my lifetime,” Kasich said.

Ohio’s auditor is repeating his strident criticism of his party’s apparent presidential nominee – though he’s hedging ever-so-slightly on his pledge to NEVER vote for Donald Trump under any circumstances. Auditor David Yost raised a stir in February when he declared on Facebook he would not campaign or vote for Donald Trump or even attend the RNC convention in Cleveland if Trump were the GOP nominee.

His latest Facebook post underscores why he felt that way then – and now. He wrote, in part, “My concern has never been just the Trump positions I disagree with -- that's part of politics -- it's the evidence that points to an utter lack of principled convictions.”
