CNN has an interesting article today on the bellwether Ohio town of Chillicothe. The town is still collectively on the fence regarding the McCain/Obama question, and may serve as a microcosm of many similar areas throughout the Midwest:
No Republican has ever won the White House without winning Ohio, a state that has received more visits from the candidates and their running mates this year than any other.
Inside the bellwether state is the bellwether town of Chillicothe, a town that often mirrors the state’s election results.
Voters there are divided.
With less than a month to go until the election, it’s concerns about the financial markets and the economy that dominate the airwaves at the town’s radio station.
"The only other people that’ve experienced something like what we’re experiencing now are our grandparents or our great-grandparents," host Dan Ramey said on his radio show on WBEX-AM.
