Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated Sanders would physically be in Cincinnati. He will, in fact, be live-streaming the event to multiple venues nationwide. 

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will bring his campaign to Cincinnati Wednesday, July 29, when he live-streams a message to supporters at the Woodward Theater in Over-the-Rhine.

  Ohio Governor John Kasich announces his presidential candidacy today, his second bid for the White House.  He enters an already-crowded field, becoming the 16th candidate to officially jump into the race. 

WVXU politics reporter Howard Wilkinson talked with Ann Thompson Monday morning about Ohio Gov. John Kasich jumping into the fight for the Republican presidential nomination and his chances of coming out on top. 

Howard Wilkinson has been on vacation so there's no Politically Speaking column Sunday.

Not to worry though, his column returns next week.

NPR Live Coverage of President Obama's Press Conference

Jul 15, 2015

We will bring you NPR's live coverage and analysis of President Obama's press conference this afternoon at 1:00. The President is expected to discuss the nuclear agreement with Iran, the situation in Greece and other topics.

  So who would have guessed it?

Somebody among the small army of Republican presidential candidates was going to be the first to go on the air with a TV ad buy in New Hampshire, the state with the first-in-the-nation primary.

Not many people thought it would be Ohio’s own John Kasich.

But indeed it was.

Now that Ohio Gov. John Kasich has announced he will officially launch his presidential campaign in a few weeks, there may be new attention on another Republican statewide officeholder.

You don’t have to be a fan of cable news shows to know liberals and conservatives have very different ways of looking at the world. Now findings from three separate studies link a person’s political ideology and their self-control performance, with conservatives demonstrating greater self-control than liberals. 

WVXU politics reporter Howard Wilkinson talked with news director Maryanne Zeleznik Monday morning about next year's battle for two Hamilton County commission seats; and the Cincinnati Reds' Todd Frazier's come-from-behind win the the All-Star Game vote. 

  Most people assume that next year is the year when the presidential campaign and the U.S. Senate race suck all of the air out of the room in Ohio.

You won’t hear about anything else, especially in Hamilton County, which will end up being one of the most sought-after prizes in the Buckeye State by the presidential campaigns, and by both U.S. Senate candidates.

But they won’t suck quite all of the air out of the room in Hamilton County.
