For the first time in its history, the Ohio Legislative Black Caucus will be holding its convention in Cincinnati.  

The group has a convention every four years.

The group will be meeting at the Westin Hotel and other sites from July 15 to July 17.  Those meetings will overlap with the national NAACP convention being held at the Duke Energy Center starting July 16.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will speak Monday, July 18 to the 107th annual national convention of the NAACP at the Duke Energy Convention Center.

WVXU politics reporter Howard Wilkinson spoke with news director Maryanne Zeleznik Monday morning about growing calls for Hillary Clinton to consider former Ohio attorney general and state treasurer Richard Cordray as her running mate. It's a long shot, but Cordray is likely to get consideration.

A Black Lives Matter demonstration and march through Downtown and Over-the-Rhine ended peacefully Sunday. The protest was held after the deaths of black men and women in police custody or in contact with police.  It was organized Thursday just before five Dallas Police officers were killed at a similar rally.

Suddenly, there is a major buzz going on – and not just in the Buckeye State – about an Ohioan possibly joining Hillary Clinton on the Democratic ticket as the vice presidential candidate.

You may well have read the above paragraph and assumed we were talking about the senior senator from Ohio, Sherrod Brown, who has been the subject of much veepship speculation.

Well, we're not talking about Sherrod Brown.

Extra Cincinnati police officers will be on hand for a planned protest rally Sunday following the shooting at a peaceful protest in Dallas Thursday night that left five police officers dead.
