Trump-GOP divisions persist in swing-state Ohio

CINCINNATI (AP) — So much for post-convention unity for Ohio Republicans.

In a state that history shows is crucial for the GOP presidential nominee, there’s been a new round of divisions over Donald Trump.

Since leaving Cleveland, the brash businessman has stoked his war of words with Ohio’s popular Republican governor, drawn indirect policy criticism from a former GOP president visiting Ohio, driven a former Republican state official to denounce him, and alienated some Ohio parents of slain soldiers with his criticism of another Gold Star family.

It’s been frustrating for some who want Democrat Hillary Clinton’s defeat.

But veteran Republican politician Greg Hartmann of Cincinnati adds that there is still plenty of time for Trump to get back on track to win the swing state.
