CLEVELAND CLINIC

The Cleveland Clinic says it will pull an annual fundraiser from Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort after all.

The Clinic had initially resisted pressure from health professionals and others over the Republican president's support for repealing the Affordable Care Act and cutting federal budget dollars to medical research. It had said the event was not political.

The clinic said this morning it made the decision to pull the event after "careful consideration" of various issues. It did not elaborate.

About 500 people gathered in downtown Akron last  night for a candlelight vigil honoring Heather Heyer and calling her death a potential catalyst for ending racism.

The vigil and rally included the iconic sounds of the civil rights movement and evoked the images of Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. But speakers, including former state senator and Bernie Sanders surrogate Nina Turner, dwelled most on Heather Heyer, the young woman killed last weekend as she protested the gathering of white supremacists and neo-Nazis in Charlottesville.

But as WKSU’s M.L. Schultze reports, the speech itself did not raise the name of Ohio’s Republican standard-bearer, Gov. John Kasich.

Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor’s official announcement last week that she’s running for governor rounds out the GOP field at four. More than the others, though, Taylor is walking a line, praising the progress of Ohio under Gov. John Kasich, while drawing distinctions. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more on what may be shaping up to be a proxy primary battle between Kasich and President Donald Trump
