GOP Outreach, Cuyahoga County Disparity Study, Taxes

The run for the White House will come down to a few key states and it's no secret that one of those states will be Ohio. Republicans, who will choose their nominee in Cleveland in July, say a GOP return to the White House could hinge on Ohio. And a GOP win in Ohio might hinge on a few more votes from minorities, a demographic that usually swings Democrat.

We'll look at the rationale behind a new push by Cuyahoga County to award more business to companies owned by women and minorities. A new study reveals that these fims got a paltry share of public contracts.

Finally, thoughts from the Tax foundation on Ohio's tax system. In a word: Taxing.
