(Cleveland) - iHeartMedia Cleveland presented, "Ohio: The Heart of 2020". An examination of our state's role in the upcoming Presidential Election.
It was hosted by Geraldo Rivera, Fox News correspondent-at-large, and Newsradio WTAM 1100 on-air personality.
The event was held at Windows on the River in downtown Cleveland Tuesday afternoon, and was sponsored by Meritech.
Rivera was joined by Shontel Brown, chairperson for the Democratic Party of Cuyahoga County; Tom Beres former WKYC-TV3 Senior Political Correspondent; Rob Frost, chairman for the Republican Party of Cuyahoga County; Bill Wills, host of “Cleveland’s Morning News with Wills and Snyder”on WTAM 1100; and Ohio Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted.
Husted said it's a little early to determine if Ohio will go red or blue in 2020, but right now it seems the Republicans have an advantage, because of an older population that's less diverse than many parts of the nation.
Brown contended that Democrats have had a difficult time winning Ohio because of Republican gerrymandering and voter suppression, but believes the President's negative behavior will help them attract independent voters
Frost said he expects President Trump to win re-election because of what he called, the Democrat's socialist agenda.
The entire presentation is expected to be broadcast on WTAM at a later date.
