Ohio has been moving back into Swing State territory and Joe Biden has been advertising more in the Buckeye State:

Former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign unveiled two new television ads on Thursday, including one that features a testimonial from a farmer from western Pennsylvania who voted for Donald Trump in 2016 but now calls that choice a “mistake” he won't make again.

“I voted for Trump in '16, and I'll be the first to tell you I made a mistake,” Rick, a voter and third-generation farmer from Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, said in one of the new ads entitled “Totally Negligent,” that the Biden campaign is rolling out. The ad will run in the battleground states of Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota and, of course, the Keystone State, according to the Biden campaign.

Echoing Biden's language on the COVID-19 crisis, Rick does not pin the existence of the virus on Trump, but says the outsized toll the coronavirus pandemic has taken on the United States is due to the President's mismanagement of the situation.

And more Ohio Republicans are rallying behind Biden:

Former Cincinnati City Council member and Hamilton County Commissioner Phil Heimlich has been active in Republican politics for decades. But this election, he’s jumping the political fence and urging a vote for Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

“We are asking our fellow Republicans to be patriots and not partisans,” Heimlich says.

Heimlich is part of a group known as Operation Grant, named after Ohio-born President Ulysses S. Grant, who this group credits for unifying the country after the Civil War. It's the latest effort among anti-Trump Republicans to target Ohio voters who may be dissatisfied with the president's leadership.

Not to mention we have some very competitive races for the Ohio Supreme Court so we should give Ohio Democrats a boost. Let’s keep up the momentum to flip Ohio Blue. Click below to donate and get involved with Biden and his fellow Ohio Democrats campaigns:
