1.  The results are in for the Ohio Primary.  Who do you think will be our next governor?

 

2.    Will Sherrod Brown be able to hold his Senate seat?

 

3.      President Trump is withdrawing the U.S. from the Iran nuclear deal. The agreement between Iran and six world powers lifted sanctions that crippled Iran's economy in return for tight limits on the Islamic Republic's nuclear energy program.  Making the announcement from the White House, President Trump said the current deal allows Iran to continue to enrich uranium and gave the regime billions of dollars. The president also called the current deal "defective at its core."  Does Trump speak loudly and carry a big stick?

 

4.       Pier W has the best brunch in Cleveland according to Open Table, a restaurant reservation site.  The restaurant on the Gold Coast in Lakewood make the list of the top 100 Best Brunch Restaurants in America and is one of just two Ohio restaurants to make the list, the other is Lindey’s in Columbus.   Have you had brunch at Pier W?  Who do you think has the best brunch in Cleveland?

 

5.      Police say a couple from the state of New York pretended their 9-year-old son had blood cancer in order to solicit money for a GoFundMe account from sympathetic donors. Their son even received an invite to Syracuse University football practice as a result of the fraudulent scheme.  Martin and Jolene LaFrance were charged with a felony, endangering the welfare of a child.  The couple faked the story of their son having Hodgkin lymphoma and set up a GoFundMe page that raised over $3,000 in donations. What would be a just punishment for the parents?

 

6.      Hyundai announced that its setting up a task force to prepare for the potential restarting of economic projects in North Korea. Hyundai, one of the biggest names in South Korean business, will also be closely monitoring the planned summit between Kim Jong Un and President Trump. The company's ties to North Korea actually go back to Hyundai's late founder, Chung Ju-young, who was born there.  Do you see free trade opening up in North Korea? Do you expect the United States to export goods and services there?

 

7.      Bloomberg is reporting that Obamacare plans next year will increase and in some cases, insurers are seeking double-digit percentage increases. Virginia and Maryland are the first states where 2019 rate requests have been made public with CareFirst wanting to nearly double the amount it charges on average for one coverage option in Maryland, and raise the cost of another in Virginia by 64%.   Do you think we will see a bill pass in Congress updating Obamacare?

 

8.      Multiple reports suggest that Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and retired NFL player Herschel Walker will soon join President Trump’s Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition.

9.      Warren Buffett seems to have a lot of faith in Apple and it shows in the 75 million shares he purchased in the first quarter. That's in addition to the 165.3 million shares Berkshire Hathaway already owned at the end of 2017. Buffett calls Apple an unbelievable company and said: "If you look at Apple, I think it earns almost twice as much as the second most profitable company in the United States." Do you share the same confidence in Apple as Warren Buffett? 

 

10.   President Trump has asked the Pentagon to look into reducing American troops in South Korea.  Should we pull all troops out of South Korea after the Kim Jong-un meeting?
