Republicans bet the farm on Ohio

2569663Washington Examiner:

CLEVELAND — The Republicans dropped anchor in Ohio Thursday, casting their hopes for 2016, and beyond, with the voters of America's ultimate consumer-products test market.


Ohio is the quintessential swing state — one the Republican Party has never lost and still gone on to win the White House.


But choosing this Midwestern metropolis as the site of its first presidential primary debate and 2016 nominating convention is about more than winning the Buckeye State's 18 electoral votes. Reeling from successive presidential defeats and five popular-vote losses in six tries, plus national demographic and cultural shifts toward the Democrats, the GOP figures that, like soap, soda or cereal, if it can fine tune its political product and sell it here, it can sell it anywhere.


"Coming to Cleveland is an indicator that we are going to concentrate on every voter, no matter who they are, what their background is, or where they come from. That is our commitment, and Cleveland is part of it," Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus told the Washington Examiner.Scissors-32x32.png
