There is something intriguing about the state of Ohio in relation to the US presidential elections. The state's vote concurs with the result of the national elections more often than any other state in the country.
Win the Ohio state and more than 90 percent of the time, the candidate is assured of the presidency. And, this is why the swing state with its 18 electoral votes is nothing to sneeze at.
Just recently, one of Ohio's most popular and beloved figures in LeBron James endorsed Hillary Clinton for the White House seat. And, this could help bolster the Democrat's bid to win the state. more >>

In an accompanying column Eric Sapp makes the rather startling assertion that "Hillary Clinton Is the Best Choice for Voters Against Abortion."
He then seeks to manipulate the argument by using inflammatory, controversial language.
