The landscape is very different four years later.
No Republican has ever won the White House without the Buckeye State, and polls show Ohio is in play.
With just over three weeks to go, President Trump has pulled ad spending in Ohio, while Biden’s team is pushing millions into the state in the last stretch of the campaign.
Democratic candidate former Vice President Joe Biden held a campaign stop in Toledo (which you can see below) Monday afternoon before heading toward Cincinnati, while current Vice President Mike Pence held a rally in Columbus.
Biden delivered the Toledo remarks at the UAW Local 14 Union Hall, touching on his love for the American auto worker and what he would do to make the country a safer place if given the chance to be president.
“Never underestimate the American people. There’s no quit in American, there’s none and America we can do anything that we need to do if we do it together,” Biden said on stage.
His later Cincinnati stop was described as a “voter mobilization” event.
Pence, meanwhile held his rally at concrete contractor, Savko & Sons Monday afternoon. He too told voters what he planned on doing to “make America great again.”
“If you cherish faith, and freedom law and order and life in 22 days we need to reelect President Donald Trump for four more years,” Pence said on stage.
Later this evening, President Trump is scheduled to hold a rally in Sanford, Florida at 7 p.m.
The election is November 3.
