The battle for Ohio

Updated

With 42 days until the election and 7 days until the first debate the news networks are gearing up for what is sure to be a battle to the finish. To add to the pressure of winning an election is the fact that no Republican has won the Oval Office without winning Ohio, and no Democrat has done it since JFK in 1960. Thus, President Obama and Romney are full force ahead when it comes to the battleground state of Ohio, which according to latest polls has President Obama ahead by a small margin. Yesterday, Paul Ryan launched his 3 day 5 city bus tour through Ohio and today Mitt Romney is joining him at a rally in Vandalia, Ohio. Tomorrow, President Obama will fly to Ohio to campaign.  

Today President Obama took the world stage at the U.N. General Assembly as he addressed many issues including the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, the Muslim World unrest, the crisis in Syria, threats from Iran and nuclear weapons, and the fact that everyone is entitled to free speech.  While President Obama addresses the world Mitt Romney is focusing on the President’s 60 Minute interview where he called the Middle East uprising “bumps in the road”.

So as the two go into their final stretches of campaigning we are sure to hear about both of their Foreign Policy views. 

Amie Parnes from The Hill will be joining the conversation at 3pm to help us dissect the campaigns and foreign policy. Be sure to tune in.
