Think everyone who marched on Saturday was a liberal coastal elite? Think again.

Retired educator Linda Houston helped organize a march in her hometown of Wooster, Ohio — population 26,384.

Houston, a longtime Democratic activist and former local officeholder, was surprised at the turnout in a town she describes as leaning red.

Democratic Inquiry MLK 2017

The Martin Luther King Ceremony at the Presbyterian Church on Bowman. Dinner is at 5, and the ceremony begins at 7. Show your support for King, the local NAACP, and Civil Rights! The food is always good, the choir sounds great (and Shades of Gold from the College of Wooster sound so professional!) the speeches inspirational.

Hope …

Medicaid expansion credited for getting record number of kids insurance in Ohio (This is Obamacare at Work)

More than 95 percent of Ohio children have health coverage as the uninsured rate fell to historic lows in the wake of Obamacare.

The state’s rate of uninsured children during that time fell to 4.4 percent, down …

Rob Portman Disqualifies Himself From Senate Race – Local Commentary

Rob Portman Disqualifies Himself From Senate Race – Local Commentary
