Browns GM: Team not discussed Condoleezza Rice as coach

Channel 10 news - Sun, 11/18/2018 - 15:24

CLEVELAND — The Browns' coaching search isn't quite ready to cross gender or diplomatic lines.

General manager John Dorsey, who opened the possibility of hiring a woman to be Cleveland's next coach, said Sunday that the team has not discussed former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as a candidate to become the club's ninth coach since 1999.

ESPN, citing an anonymous league source, reported that the team would like to interview Rice, an ardent Browns fan since childhood, for its coaching job.

However, Dorsey said she is not on the team's current list of candidates.

"Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is a great leader, possesses the highest possible character and also happens to be a Browns fan," Dorsey said.

"I have the utmost respect and admiration for all she's accomplished and was honored to meet her for the first time earlier this season. Our coaching search will be thorough and deliberate, but we are still in the process of composing the list of candidates and Secretary Rice has not been discussed."

Earlier this week, Dorsey said he would consider a wide-range of candidates.

"I just want the best possible head coach to move this thing forward regardless of age," he said. "It could be a woman, too. I am serious. Who knows?"

The 64-year-old Rice would be an historic and outside-the-box candidate for the Browns, who fired Hue Jackson last month after he won just three games in two-plus seasons and went 0-16 in 2017.

There has never been a woman interviewed for a head coaching job in the NFL.

On her Facebook page, Rice professed her deep love for the Browns and said confidently, "I know they will hire an experienced coach to take us to the next level."

"On a more serious note, I do hope that the NFL will start to bring women into the coaching profession as position coaches and eventually coordinators and head coaches," she wrote. "One doesn't have to play the game to understand it and motivate players. But experience counts — and it is time to develop a pool of experienced women coaches.

"BTW — I'm not ready to coach but I would like to call a play or two next season if the Browns need ideas! And at no time will I call for a "prevent defense."

Rice's last reference is common among die-hard Browns fans, who still bemoan then-coach Marty Schottenheimer's decision to play soft coverage in the 1986 AFC championship game when Denver quarterback John Elway drove the Broncos 98 yards to a game-tying touchdown in the final seconds. "The Drive" as it's known helped the Broncos beat the Browns 23-20 in overtime, denying Cleveland a trip to the Super Bowl.

Rice discussed her love for the team during a visit to the Browns' headquarters in 2010. Her passion for the Browns dates to her early years in Alabama, where she and her father watched games together and cheered for Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown on teams coached by Paul Brown.

Rice has become increasingly involved in sports, serving on the College Football Playoff selection committee and chairing a commission on college basketball.

She served as secretary of state under President George W. Bush from 2005-09.

Dorsey said interim coach Gregg Williams will be interviewed for the full-time position following the season.

The Browns have a bye this week and will face Cincinnati next Sunday, when they'll have a reunion sorts with Jackson, who was hired by the Bengals as a special assistant to coach Marvin Lewis.

Ravens keep it on the ground, beat Bengals 24-21

Channel 10 news - Sun, 11/18/2018 - 14:54

BALTIMORE (AP) — Rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson juked and sprinted for 117 yards in his first NFL start, Gus Edwards ran for 115 and the Baltimore Ravens ground out a 24-21 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday to end a three-game losing streak.

Flashing the moves that enabled him to win the 2016 Heisman Trophy at Louisville, Jackson zipped in and out of the pocket for 27 carries. Though the Ravens (5-5) relied heavily on the run, Jackson also completed 13 of 19 passes for 150 yards with an interception.

"We came out with a win, so it was pretty good, I guess," Jackson said. "I had butterflies before the first tackle, but after the first tackle it was game on."

Ravens starting quarterback Joe Flacco did not practice all week and was inactive with a right hip injury. That created an opening for Jackson, the 32nd overall pick in the NFL draft.

"I thought he played spectacular," coach John Harbaugh said. "I thought he played winning football."

Before Sunday, the former Louisville star occasionally took snaps in running situations and replaced Flacco in the fourth quarter of two blowouts. Having to carry the load by himself, Jackson responded with a solid performance in a game the Ravens had to win.

"We weren't able to get him stopped enough," said Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, who took the reins of the defense after firing coordinator Teryl Austin on Monday.

Down 21-13 in the second half, Baltimore rallied to hand the sinking Bengals (5-5) their fourth loss in five games.

Edwards, an undrafted rookie free agent, scored on an 11-yard run and barreled in for the conversion late in the third quarter. Jackson then directed a 55-yard drive that ended with a field goal by Justin Tucker with 8:12 remaining.

"My teammates had my backs, and I had theirs," Jackson said.

Cincinnati's Randy Bullock missed a potential tying 52-yard field goal with 3:59 left, and Andy Dalton's fourth-down pass from the Baltimore 37 with 1:42 to go was knocked away by Marlon Humphrey.

This was a tough defeat for the Bengals, who were soaring at 4-1 in October but now stand at .500 for the first time.

"I thought they played hard. I though they played better and did a good job on assignments," Lewis said.

After Cincinnati allowed 500 yards in three straight games, an NFL record in the Super Bowl era, Lewis took control of the unit. The Bengals were much better this time around, although success came at the expense of an inexperienced quarterback who had thrown 12 passes in the NFL before Sunday.

Jackson ran 10 times for 64 yards and five first downs, Alex Collins scored on a 7-yard run to cap the opening drive, and the Ravens took a 13-7 halftime lead when Tucker drilled a 56-yard field goal.

It all came apart for Baltimore in the third quarter. Jackson threw his first NFL interception, a pick by Shawn Williams, whose 22-yard return set up a 4-yard touchdown pass to tight end Matt Lengel for a 14-13 lead.

On the next series, Jackson was stuffed on a fourth-and-1 from the Baltimore 45. Dalton turned the gamble into a touchdown, hitting John Ross on the right side of the end zone for a 22-yard score.

But the Ravens rallied.


Also on Sunday, Robert Griffin III made his debut with Baltimore after being on the inactive list for the first nine weeks. Griffin lined up as a receiver in the second quarter but did not touch the ball.


The Ravens improved to 9-2 after a bye under Harbaugh, and they're 14-3 since 2002 following an extra week off.


Bengals: WR A.J. Green (toe) was inactive after dressing for warmups.

Ravens: OT James Hurst (back) was inactive for a fourth straight week. ... OT Ronnie Stanley twice limped off the field. He's had ankle issues lately.


Bengals: A matchup next Sunday against visiting Cleveland should be particularly meaningful for former Browns coach Hue Jackson, hired as an assistant by Cincinnati on Tuesday.

Ravens: A three-game homestand concludes for Baltimore against the struggling Oakland Raiders.

Ohio State moves down to No. 10 in latest AP college football poll

Channel 10 news - Sun, 11/18/2018 - 11:22

Army is ranked for the first time since 1996, moving into The Associated Press college football poll at No. 23 as it begins preparations to face rival Navy on Dec. 8.

The Black Knights (9-2) have been edging toward the Top 25 in recent weeks, and they finally broke through on Sunday. The rankings were mostly unchanged after a weekend with few big games or surprising results.

Led by unanimous No. 1 Alabama, the top six stayed the same as last week. Clemson was No. 2, followed by Notre Dame, Michigan, Georgia and Oklahoma.

Washington State moved up a spot to No. 7 and UCF jumped three spots to No. 8, season highs for both schools. LSU tied Central Florida at No. 8 and Ohio State was 10th.

Also debuting in the Top 25 this season is Pittsburgh at No. 24.

Army being ranked has been a rarity since the early 1960s. From 1963-2017, there have been only two seasons in which the Black Knights appeared in the AP Top 25. In 1985, Army was No. 19 for one week on its way to a 9-3 season. In 1996, Army went 10-2 and was ranked in four of the final five polls of the season. The Cadets finished 25th that season.

Army managed just one winning record from 1997-2015. But under coach Jeff Monken, who took over in 2014, Army has had three straight winning seasons. The Black Knights head into the Navy game looking for a third straight victory against the Midshipmen and a second consecutive 10-win season.

The Cadets are on a seven-game winning streak since losing in overtime at Oklahoma on Sept. 22.


Army and Pitt became the 52nd and 53rd teams to be ranked this season, setting a record for the most ranked teams since the poll expanded to 25 in 1989. The previous high was 51 teams ranked in 2008.

The Panthers, who were 3-4 and 0-3 vs. ranked teams on Oct. 7, are ranked for the first time since Dec. 4, 2016. They have won four straight to win the Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division and earn a trip to the league championship game for the first time.

The Top 25 teams in The Associated Press college football poll, with first-place votes in parentheses, records through Nov. 17, total points based on 25 points for a first-place vote through one point for a 25th-place vote, and previous ranking:

The collaboration is part of "Mickey the True Original," a global celebration of Mickey's heritage, personality and status as a pop-culture icon.

Since his big-screen debut in Steamboat Willie on November 18, 1928, Mickey continues to serve as the global ambassador for The Walt Disney Company. From the beloved Mickey Mouse Club to today's Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts, the character's optimistic outlook and endearing personality continue to delight fans around the world.

"Shinola is a company that believes in celebrating American success stories," said Shannon Washburn, President of Shinola. "We are proud to join Disney in honoring the magic of Mickey Mouse while also commemorating the five-year anniversary of our flagship watch, the Runwell."

Mickey Classics is a collection of limited-edition and special-edition Shinola Runwell timepieces, leather goods, audio equipment, wall clocks and journals showcasing Mickey Mouse.

We are offering five limited-edition Runwell timepieces featuring illustrations by Disney's character artist, Jeff Shelly. Each illustration is drawn specifically for these five Shinola watches, inspired by iconic Mickey Mouse moments such as the character's appearance in Plane Crazy and Steamboat Willie. Limited to 90 timepieces per style in honor of Mickey Mouse's 90th Anniversary, each Runwell comes with one of five framed original sketches of Mickey Mouse, as well as a special-edition Shinola sketchbook with a "How to Draw Mickey" instructional booklet.

Additionally, both the leather Runwell backpack—which includes a hand-stitched leather appliqué of Steamboat Willie—and the leather tech portfolio are lined with a "How to Draw Mickey" illustration.

The Mickey Classics journals feature a flip book that animates a scene from The Nifty Nineties (1941) created by Disney legend Fred (Freddie) Moore, whose design and animation of the spunky little star is considered seminal in Mickey's career.

The Shinola x Disney Mickey Classics collection will be available on November 16, at Shinola.com and in Shinola stores, Disney stores, and select specialty retailers. Prices range from $28 for a journal to $2,500 for a Shinola Runwell Turntable.

Channel 10 news - Sun, 11/18/2018 - 06:39

WILMINGTON, Del. — Former Vice President Joe Biden has a new four-legged family member.

The Delaware Humane Association said Saturday that Biden and his wife, Jill, have adopted a 10-month-old German Shepherd named Major.

Director of Animal Care Kerry Bruni said the Bidens had been providing foster care for the dog in their home for several months and were ready to make the adoption official.

Two dead after being hit by Christmas-themed train in Massachusetts, officials say

Channel 10 news - Sun, 11/18/2018 - 03:48

WAREHAM, Mass. -- Two people were hit and killed by a Christmas-themed train Saturday night in Wareham, CBS Boston reports. The train is similar to a Polar Express ride that regularly travels through Wareham during the holiday season.

A South Coastal Scenic train hit a man and a woman who investigators believe were on the tracks at the time.

"The train was a scenic train carrying numerous passengers at the time of impact, and originated in Buzzards Bay. No passengers riding on the train were injured," the Plymouth District Attorney's office said.

New Lewis Center Brewery adds to growing local industry

Channel 10 news - Sat, 11/17/2018 - 20:46

LEWIS CENTER, Ohio - What started as an idea between a few friends has contributed to a growing industry in central Ohio.

Olentangy River Brewing Co. is the city’s newest brewery focused on craft beers, joining nearly 50 others in the area.

“We are really focused on community,” co-founder Ryan Wilkins said.

“What we are hoping that we can do is create a space that people in Lewis Center and in all of central Ohio can gather and feel like it’s their home.”

It is the growing thirst for what’s on tap - be it a sweet American amber ale or a double IPA – that has this business owner confident about his new endeavor.

“It was interesting to see how all the other breweries welcomed us to town.”

“They said 'Come check out our place, we want to share recipes with you, we want to talk about ideas and how we get things done,' ” Wilkins said.

Based on the data, Ohioans have the craft beer industry down to a science.

The Brewers Association, a national organization representing craft brewers, ranks Ohio at 11 for its number of craft breweries.

The association counted 225 breweries in 2017. The economic impact of the business is on the rise. In 2017 breweries brought more than $3.2 billion to the state.

“There have been a few different waves of beer growth," Wilkins said. "I mean it just continues to grow pretty much exponentially."

Wilkins is hopeful his new business, which offers a warm family atmosphere as well as coffee for those early birds, will be one of the success stories in a competitive field.​

Olentangy River Brewing Co. is located at 303 Green Meadows Dr. in Lewis Center, near the Nationwide Conference Center

76 people killed, nearly 1,300 unaccounted for in California wildfires

Channel 10 news - Sat, 11/17/2018 - 19:49

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea says emergency responders have made progress in finding people who had been reported missing in the wildfires but the list of those unaccounted for is now nearly 1,300.

Honea pleaded Saturday with the public to check out the list and to call in if they are safe. Honea says the list is growing because authorities continue to cull names from phone calls, emails and reports that came in in the early hours of the wildfire that started Nov. 8.

Authorities also say they found five more bodies Saturday in Northern California's Camp Fire, bringing the death toll to 76.

The Camp Fire in Butte County is the deadliest in the country in at least a century. Honea says authorities have tentatively identified 63 of the 76 dead.

Four bodies were found in the devastated town of Paradise, population 27,000, and one in nearby Concow.

Democrat Andrew Gillum officially ends bid for Florida governor

Channel 10 news - Sat, 11/17/2018 - 15:47

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Democrat Andrew Gillum ended his hard-fought campaign for Florida governor on Saturday, just hours before counties must turn in their official results following days of recounting ballots.

Gillum, in a video that he posted on Facebook, congratulated Republican Ron DeSantis but vowed to remain politically active although he gave no clues as his future plans. His term as Tallahassee mayor ends next week.

"This has been the journey of our lives," said Gillum, who appeared in the video with his wife, R. Jai Gillum. "Although nobody wanted to be governor more than me, this was not just about an election cycle. This was about creating the kind of change in this state that really allows the voices of everyday people to show up again in our government."

Gillum's announcement came as most Florida counties were winding down their hand recount in the state's contentious U.S. Senate race.

The smattering of results publicly posted on Saturday showed that Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson was only gaining a few hundred votes in his bitter contest with outgoing Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican.

State officials ordered a manual recount earlier in the week after a legally required machine recount showed that Scott led incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson by about 12,600 votes. More than 8 million voters cast ballots in the race.

Florida's high-profile race for governor was close as well, but not enough to trigger a hand recount.

Counties have until noon on Sunday to file their official results, but it appears the gap is too far for Nelson to close. Nelson's campaign has remained quiet as the final count has gotten closer.

Nelson and Democrats filed several lawsuits following the close election, challenging everything from the state's signature mismatch law to deadlines for mail-in ballots.

The Nelson campaign managed to secure only one victory in court. U.S. District Judge Mark Walker gave voters until 5 p.m. Saturday to fix their ballots if they haven't been counted because of mismatched signatures. Nearly 5,700 ballots were rejected because signatures on ballot envelopes did not match signatures kept on file by election officials.

But Walker rejected additional lawsuits, including one that sought to change the rules used while inspecting hand ballots.

If the 76-year-old Nelson loses, it would likely spell an end to a lengthy political career that stretches back four decades. Nelson was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 2000. A win for Scott would mark his third victory since the multimillionaire businessman launched his political career in 2010. In each race, Scott has barely edged his Democratic opponent.

State law requires a machine recount in races where the margin is 0.5 percentage points or less. Once that recount was complete, if the differences in any of the races are 0.25 percentage points or less, a hand recount is ordered. Local canvassing boards only review ballots where a vote was not recorded by voting machines.

Back in 2000, the state became the target of ridicule during the chaotic recount of the presidential election that was ultimately won by George W. Bush by 537 votes.

The stakes aren't quite as high this time around, but there have been plenty of problems, especially in two Democratic strongholds in South Florida

On Saturday, the top elections official in Broward County acknowledged publicly that her office had misplaced more than 2,000 ballots.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel posted video where Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said that 2,040 ballots had been "misfiled."

"The ballots are in the building," Snipes tells members of the canvassing board responsible for doing the hand recount.

It was another snag for Snipes, who has already been under fire for the way her office has handled the election and recount. Some Republicans have been calling for Gov. Scott to remove her from office.

Ohio State survives in OT, beating Maryland 52-51

Channel 10 news - Sat, 11/17/2018 - 14:42

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Ohio State went to overtime to avoid one of the most stunning upsets in this college football season, defeating Maryland 52-51 Saturday when the Terrapins failed to convert a 2-point conversion after the potential game-tying touchdown.

Favored by 14½ points, Ohio State (10-1, 7-1 Big Ten, No. 10 CFP) trailed by two touchdowns in the third quarter and 45-38 with under two minutes left before rallying to a pivotal victory.

After a 5-yard touchdown run by Dwayne Haskins gave the Buckeyes the lead to start overtime, Tayon Fleet-Davis scored to get the Terrapins within a point. Interim coach Matt Canada decided to end it right there, going for 2, but Tyrrell Pigrome's pass to Jeshaun Jones was off target.

The victory kept the Buckeyes in the hunt for the Big Ten title and a spot in the College Football Playoff. Ohio State concludes the regular season next week in a game against Michigan that will decide the Big Ten East winner.

The Buckeyes never led until overtime against the upstart Terrapins (5-6, 3-5). Haskins ran for three touchdowns and was 28 for 38 for 405 yards and three TDs.

Ohio State finished with a whopping 688 yards, including 203 on the ground by J.K. Dobbins, but the defense allowed 535 yards and seven touchdowns.

Maryland freshman Anthony McFarland had touchdown runs of 81 and 75 yards in the first quarter and finished with 298 yards rushing — seven short of the school's single-game record.

The Terps took a 45-38 lead when Chigoziem Okonkwo recovered a fumble by McFarland in the end zone with 1:41 left. Haskins then orchestrated a 50-yard, beat-the-clock drive that ended with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Binjimen Victory with 40 seconds remaining.

Up 24-17 at halftime, the Terrapins garnered further momentum on Ohio State's first drive of the second half when RaVon Davis picked off a deflected pass and took it 37 yards for a score.

The Buckeyes answered with a 73-yard scoring drive that featured a pair of penalties against Maryland, including a pass interference call on a third-and-7. After Ohio State pulled even in the fourth quarter, Maryland moved back in front on a 27-yard touchdown pass by Pigrome, who was making his first start of the season after Kasim Hill sustained a season-ending knee injury last week.

Pigrome went 6 for 13 for 181 yards.


Ohio State: It goes without saying that the Buckeyes must play much, much better next week to beat Michigan. The offense had no trouble moving the ball, but three turnovers proved costly. The defense, needless to say, was awful against a one-dimensional team that repeatedly peeled off huge runs.

Maryland: Despite putting forth a great effort against a Top-10 team on Senior Day, the Terrapins still can't seem to get the offense and defense working in sync. Last week, four turnovers were too much to overcome in a loss to Indiana. In this game, the defense couldn't back a strong outing by a big-play offense that gave the Buckeyes headaches all afternoon.


The Terrapins had scored on all 25 trips to the red zone this season, and Maryland freshman Joseph Petrino was the only kicker in the nation without a miss on a field-goal try (10 for 10) before both streaks ended in the second quarter. After reaching the Ohio State 18, the Terrapins lost ground before Petrino misfired on a 49-yard attempt.


Ohio State: The stakes couldn't be much bigger when the Buckeyes look to beat Michigan for a seventh straight time next week.

Maryland: With one last chance to become bowl eligible, the Terrapins travel to Penn State next Saturday.

Mother in migrant caravan makes appeal to Trump: "Open the doors for us, I beg you"

Channel 10 news - Sat, 11/17/2018 - 14:13

With each passing day, more migrants make it to Mexico's side of the U.S.-Mexico border. But for those who make it across, another difficult journey through the American asylum process, which requires them to prove they've fled persecution at home, awaits.

More than 75 percent of asylum cases from Central America were denied from 2012 to 2017, CBS News' Adriana Diaz reports.

Those odds aren't deterring a Nicaraguan family that Diaz met in Mexico. They hope to receive political asylum in the U.S.

When asked why, Idenia Molina Rocha held up a newspaper. She said it shows her family on the front page, along with a photo of their home. They support those who are against their president, and they're being persecuted for those beliefs.

Rocha claims that pro-government forces opened fire on her 14-year-old son in July and detonated a homemade bomb that lodged shrapnel in his leg, forcing him to hobble on crutches along the caravan route. Rocha's son said he was with a friend when they were shot at. He said his friend pushed him down and was killed. When they retreated to the mountains, he said people helped take the shrapnel out with nail clippers, but he thinks there are still pieces in his leg.

Rocha said "wanted" signs for her family were posted in town, so they left Nicaragua, traversed Guatemala and eventually made it to southern Mexico. They stayed there a month and then word spread about a caravan approaching.

Rocha, appealing directly to President Trump, said, "I would get on my knees and beg."

"Don't send us back," she said. "We're walking and scared. You say you will militarize the border but I pray to God that with our evidence of persecution you won't send us back. I fear for my family's life. Please Mr. Trump, open the doors for us, I beg you."

After using the issue of migrant caravans as an election campaign issue, Mr. Trump has once again focused on it. In a series of tweets Friday, he questioned the motive of migrants who are planning to seek asylum in the U.S., calling it a "BIG CON."

One woman told CBS News' Diaz she won't cross illegally but will instead seek asylum at an official port of entry. She's part of a group of LGBT migrants that is among the early arrivals at the U.S.-Mexico border. Many said they were persecuted in their home countries because of their sexual orientation and gender identity.

Earlier in the journey in southern Mexico, Diaz met a transgender woman who claims she was targeted in Honduras by gang members and was attacked by more than a dozen armed men who broke into her home. She said she's been beaten up and has a scar from the attack but doesn't like to show it because it traumatizes her more. She fears for her life in Honduras since the gang members know where she lives and have a photo of her.

Still, if she makes it to the U.S. border and presents her asylum case, the odds are against her.

Columbus woman arrested on Live PD Friday night

Channel 10 news - Sat, 11/17/2018 - 12:47

COLUMBUS - A Columbus woman was arrested on live television Friday night by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.

The sheriff's office was featured on A&E's 'Live PD', a show that follows law enforcement agencies across the country during their shifts.

During the show, deputies served a warrant for 23-year-old Storm Wisener.

According to court records, she was wanted on several warrants related to misdemeanor theft charges in Franklin County.

A warrant was also issued for her arrest out of Delaware County where she was indicted on felony charges of breaking and entering and possessing criminal tools and another misdemeanor theft charge.

Deputies searched the house for several minutes before Wisener was located hiding behind boxes.

After she was found, deputies suggested she get dressed before they took her outside. While that was happening, sounds of a pornographic video played in the background.

The sheriff's office then tweeted "Cover your eyes children... I don't think Storm was watching." Wisener is scheduled for arraignment on Monday at 9 a.m. at the Franklin County Municipal Court.

Live PD airs again on Saturday at 9 p.m. on A&E.

Eyes on 2020? Ohio GOP governor, Democratic senator mulling

Channel 10 news - Sat, 11/17/2018 - 11:12

CINCINNATI — An all-Ohio presidential election in 2020?

You would get very long odds in Vegas against that happening. It is possible, though, with two of the state's most popular politicians considering runs.

Republican Gov. John Kasich says he hasn't decided about 2020, but he has probably had more Sunday morning TV airtime the past couple years than most televangelists. He's well-acquainted with the early primary state of New Hampshire, where he returned Thursday for a series of public appearances.

After comfortably winning re-election Nov. 6 for his third term in the U.S. Senate, Democrat Sherrod Brown acknowledged Monday he has gotten a lot of encouragement and is now "seriously looking" at running for president.

With insights from Josh Pasek, a political scientist who's just to the north at the University of Michigan, here are reasons why such a 2020 showdown might happen. And why it probably won't.


Since joining the 2016 Republican presidential race more than three years ago, Kasich has presented himself as the contrast to Donald Trump. He has rebuked Trump for divisiveness. He has trolled him back on Twitter about links to Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

Kasich has said the Trump-era Republican Party has moved away from traditional GOP principles. He has shown willingness to break with his party by expanding Medicaid in Ohio through Democratic President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

If the special counsel probe, new investigations looming from a Democratic-majority House and-or Trump's combative style causes Republicans to seek an alternative, well, Kasich's standing right over there.


In 2016, Kasich defeated Trump in only one primary — Ohio's.

Short of impeachment, an economic plunge or other crisis, it's extremely unlikely that Republicans would give up on a sitting president, especially one who has shown political resilience.

Pasek said the Kasich-Trump rivalry "really is a battle for what the future of the Republican Party is" and there were signs this month that some suburban voters have Trump fatigue. But Trump still has the upper hand.

Kasich keeps flirting publicly with an independent or third-party run. History is against him there.


Trump knocked down the "Blue Wall" states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania in 2016 while decisively winning Brown's home state, traditionally a swing state. Brown, a former congressman whose won his first Ohio election in 1974, has shown the kind of populist, blue-collar appeal that Trump garnered in those states. He also has a long liberal record to please the party's traditional base.

Brown has proven ability to attract big-time special-interest campaign donations. He has withstood negative ad barrages in recent campaigns. While Republicans swept the other partisan statewide offices on Election Day, Brown got more votes than any of them and had 53 percent of the total.

Pasek says Brown isn't familiar to many rank-and-file Democrats outside of Ohio, but he added that's not necessarily a bad thing. Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama are among other Democrats who weren't well-known nationally at this stage of their presidential campaign cycles.


After an election remarkable for the successes of Democratic candidates of diverse gender, race and sexuality, a 66-year-old white guy from Ohio might not excite people. Pasek says there are "a lot of competing visions" in the Democratic Party at this point, and it's not clear yet where Brown fits in.

There's also the question of whether Brown has the "fire in the belly" to pursue the presidency. Running means many very long days of retail campaigning, many nights on the road in Iowa and New Hampshire. Brown has joked that rather than being president, his life's dream was to be centerfielder for the Cleveland Indians.


It's happened. Republican Sen. Warren G. Harding, from the community of Blooming Grove some 60 miles (96 kilometers) north of Columbus, defeated Democratic Gov. James Cox , from the village of Jacksonburg, nearly 30 miles (48 kilometers) southwest of Dayton. The 100th anniversary of that election will be in 2020.
