Donald Trump has been beating the drum against migrants from Central America. I feel confident about women, and many men, who say 'My daughter can now do this and that and this because of you.' I don't spend too much time thinking about it ... "It's all fragile", he said.
Trump heaped praise on Mike DeWine, the state's current attorney general and Republican candidate for governor, who is deadlocked in a neck-and-neck race with Democrat Rich Cordray, the former director of President Obama's Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This is to say nothing of all the things - violence, hatred, anxiety, long-term negative economic trends - for which politicians have some responsibility but about which no one much expected them to do anything.
Federal and state officials have been working for almost two years to shore up the nation's election infrastructure from cyberattacks by Russians or others seeking to disrupt the voting process.
