RE: The Battle of Tiffin, Ohio

From our correspondent in Ohio:

Obama carried Hamilton County 62% to Hillary's 36%. The big story in Ohio is crossover voting. Ohio has an open primary. You can vote either party. Republicans turned out in record numbers for Hillary to disrupt the Democrats. There were widespread shortages of Democratic ballots because of the crossover.

Tiffin is in Seneca County and mirrored the statewide results: My father-in-law called it, "Seneca county isn't ready to vote for a colored man." Seneca County Results:

Hillary Clinton 5400 57.76% to 39.45% (5400 votes)
Barack Obama 39.45% (3688 votes)
John Edwards 2.79% (261 votes)
