Officials in Dayton are aiming to capitalize on backlash against a religious-objections law in neighboring Indiana that critics say could permit discrimination against gays and lesbians.
Vice President Joe Biden Returns To Central Ohio
Vice President Joe Biden is making a second visit to the political bellwether state in less than a month.
The Democrat is scheduled to speak Thursday at the Ohio Newspaper Association’s convention in Columbus. Biden was in the Columbus area last month to talk about college affordability.
His trip comes just weeks before the Republican presidential candidates face off in the state’s March 6 primary. The GOP contenders are also expected to step up their appearances in Ohio.
President Barack Obama carried the state in 2008, and it is expected to be an important swing state again in November.
