President Trump delivered his third State of the Union address Tuesday night, touting a strong economy, job creation and his immigration policies, but made no mention of the impeachment trial that is expected to come to a close today.

The Ohio primary is set for March 17th this year. In addition to the race for the White House, Democrats and Republicans  will be choosing their respective party’s candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives.  One district to watch this year is the 13th district in Northeast Ohio, a traditionally Democratic district with a Democratic incumbent, where President Donald Trump had a very strong showing in 2016.

U.S. Rep Tim Ryan, a Democrat who represents Ohio's 13th Congressional District in the northeastern part of the state, voted in favor of the resolution establishing rules and procedures for the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. Ryan was joined by all but two Democrats in voting for the resolution on Thursday. It passed by a vote of 232-196, with independent Michigan Congressman Justin Amash joining the Democrats, and two Democrats joining all the Republicans in opposition.

Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan has ended his struggling bid for the Democratic presidential nomination after failing to qualify for the past two primary debates.

"I got into this race in April to really give voice to the forgotten people of our country. I look forward to continuing that fight," Ryan said Thursday in a tweet.

We're still almost two years away from the time when the numbers geeks hired by the political parties in Ohio put on their green eyeshades and load their U.S. Census data into their computers and begin turning out a brand-new congressional district map.

Democratic candidates for president have begun filing their fundraising reports. The deadline to file is July 15.

U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, who represents Akron and the Youngstown area, is running for president, but to say he’s a dark horse might be an understatement.

U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan from Niles in northeast Ohio is well-known in the state's Mahoning Valley, but not so much in southwest Ohio. Or in the rest of the country. WVXU senior political analyst Howard Wilkinson talked with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik Monday after Ryan's decision to join the crowded field of Democratic presidential candidates. Ryan is a long shot, but there are a lot of long shots in that field.

A 23-year-old man shows up in Newport and claims he's Timmothy Pitzen, who disappeared at the age of six in May, 2011 from the Chicago area. DNA test results reveal the hoax. 

Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan is the latest Democrat to join the growing field seeking the 2020 presidential nomination.

Ryan announced his intentions on ABC's The View on Thursday, telling the panel that he is running to be a champion for manufacturing in a country that has been fractured by trade and outsourcing.

"I understand that legacy of job loss. ... I understand where we need to go. The country's so divided right now that we can't get a plan together. The first thing we ought to do is unify," Ryan said.

Ohio’s congressional delegation is concerned that money designated for military projects here could be diverted to the border wall if President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration stands.

WVXU senior political analyst Howard Wilkinson talked with Maryanne Zeleznik Monday about the possibility of U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of northeast Ohio, a centrist Democrat, running for the Democratic presidential nomination. His campaign theme is that Democrats can't succeed by being hostile to business. If you think Sen. Sherrod Brown, who has been traveling in the early caucus and primary states, is a long shot for the nomination, Ryan is even more so. There hasn't been a president elected directly out of the U.S. House since Ohio's James Garfield in 1880.

As Democrats from across the state gathered in Columbus for their annual Legacy Dinner, they were still absorbing the news that Youngstown area Congressman Tim Ryan will not be running for governor next year.

Among the disappointed was state Rep. Bob Hagan.

“I think he could have won," he said. "I think it’s going to be a tough campaign – we needed someone that can shout and can scream and get people up on their feet and I think he can do that. On the other hand, I’m disappointed because, in a selfish way, I was going to run for Congress myself in his seat.”
