Ohio primary election 2018, Democrats Make Big Shift To Left. We observed since the last 2016 election, the American Electoral is polarizing, dividing, backlash in a country were demagogues and bigots are no longer work in the closet but invest the political arena since the Donald Trump phenomena became the new norms for doing politics and investing public office.
As a result of the American democratic values. It’s in now comparable to a third world country dictatorial regime. Where opinion diversity is no longer acceptable. Bipartisan compromise is now obsolete, lies, tweets, diplomatic. Classified government information leaking on the media often. In the White west wing become the new Broadway play for respective scandals.
The Donald Trump regime is horrible and operates by executive orders and justifications the President and acquaintances misconduct, lies, legal persecution for all kind offenses even harsh money payments to adult film actresses.
Nevertheless, in this chaotic situation, the Republican Party is now in the borderline to implosion. Experienced a lot from they camp even some real congress official preferred chooses retirement as an exit strategy. Instead of addressing strait the problem and defend the country.

Under those circumstances, the nation needs a new line of leadership. Because the population criticizing both side Democrats and Republicans. Even since the last special election, where the Democrats have been able to overcome some important battles in some deep red republicans anchor territories.
That’s maybe over warm them who expecting a big wave in November, and the situation put enormous pressure on the Republicans camps who are anxious about an eventuality to lost the majority in the House and in the Senate in this midterm election.

The former director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Democrat Richard Cordray, and former Democratic congressman and presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, have been snagging most of the headlines and high-profile endorsements in the race as of late.
Cordray threw his name in the ring early on and has enjoyed steadfast support from Massachusetts’s Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who helped form the CFPB and hand-picked Cordray for the job. Warren campaigned for Cordray in Ohio this spring and talked about him as a valued colleague.
“In Ohio, Rich isn’t going on the ballot alone. For this reason ” Warren wrote in a fundraising email for Cordray last fall. “The consumer agency will be there right along with him. There will be a lot of people who take shots at the agency to undermine Rich. I want to make sure he has the resources he needs to fight back and defend the agency.”
To put it another way, Cordray has been quick to pitch ideas for universal pre-k, health care, and clean energy. This primary opponent has dogged him over the issue of gun control.
Campaigning around the state. Kucinich, 71, has been seen wearing an “F” pin on his lapel to signal to voters. His grade from the National Rifle Association. On the trail, he has hit Cordray for being softer on the issue.
Kucinich backs an assault-weapons ban. Cordray has supported more incremental gun safety measures, like universal background checks.
Kucinich has name-recognition in the state and nationwide. And, though he entered the race late. He has steadily has picked up endorsements from progressive groups.

Mary Taylor has battled it out in the Republican primary and largely distanced themselves from Kasich and his policies.

Tax cuts and protecting the Medicaid expansion that Kasich put in place. Pepper argued that the Democratic candidates’ views were middle of the road in the state.
