Tomorrow is the big day: Super Tuesday, when ten states will hold simultaneous primary elections. There are over 400 delegates at stake on the busiest day of the of the election campaign, enough to tip the political scales in any candidate's favor.  But what's interesting is that each campaign has their eyes set on the 66 delegates that come from Ohio. That's because the Buckeye State is one of the most crucial states in this, or any, Republican primary election. Coincidence or not, no Republican has ever won the presidential nomination without first winning in Ohio.

Well who is that winner going to be?  To get a sense of how things are shaping up in Ohio we speak with Mike DeWine, Ohio’s Attorney General. Connie Schultz is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist with Creators Syndicate.

Why is it, that every time a producer from The Takeaway seeks out a journalist or a newspaper columnist, they get a liberal?

I feel very much like someone who is dissatisfied with Rush Limbaugh, and wants Limbaugh's supporters/advertisers to cut him off. The big difference is that NPR, PRI and The Takeaway claim to have no "advertisers." But they do have supporters, among them the federal government, and state governments that support individual radio stations that provide outlets for programming and who purchase The Takeaway. I'd say that "state action" by governments at all levels gives people like me a particularly good reason to demand a cutoff, until there is more fairness on the public radio airwaves.
