Here’s some coverage of the Ohio delegation from the Toledo Blade:
In yet another sign that Ohio is considered the chief battleground state in this year’s presidential campaign, Minnesota’s convention delegates gave their voting turn to Ohio’s delegation to allow it the honor of putting Mr. Kerry over the magic number of 2,162 delegates – the number needed to hand him the Democratic nomination for president.
“Ohio takes great pride tonight in being the state to put this voting over the top and making John Kerry’s candidacy official, as we cast 159 votes for the next president of the United States, John Kerry!” shouted former astronaut and U.S. Senator John Glenn.
I’m sure glad that someone I know – my mom – was in that delegation…it makes her a part of history.
