Why is tonight's debate being held in Ohio?

We will not come within five points of winning the state next year. We are not going to flip any House seats nor will it have any impact on the neighboring states of IN, KY and WV. This is a waste of time and money for Democrats and the DNC. OH is a lost cause.

Instead, this debate should be held someplace where it will benefit us such as AZ or FL or GA or NC or PA.

7. "Democrats fight to keep Ohio a 2020 battleground"

 

As a dozen Democratic presidential candidates descend on Ohio for their debate on Tuesday, a larger political question looms: Is Ohio still a winnable swing state worth fighting for in the general election?

Donald Trump carried the state by 8 percentage points in 2016, a Republican victory so resounding that some Democrats were left wondering whether Ohio had lost its storied role as a pivotal battleground.

Yet the prospect of abandoning Ohio, which Barack Obama won twice, is deeply offensive and wrong-headed to party leaders here.

"It's absolutely a mistake to write it off," Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown told CNN. "It's always gone with the winner and it will again next year."
