Good morning! Here’s what you missed while you were entertaining your parents.
The Lead Story: I’m sure you’ve heard of battleground states, but what about battleground counties? According to a new analysis by the Associated Press, what may decide the election are the 106 counties that voted for President Bush in 2004 and switched to President Obama in ’08. Though Knox County is not one of the 106 (it went to McCain and Bush before that), Ohio is still a winner take all state! So your vote is still more important than most Americans’, just not as important as the people living in Hamilton County (outside Cincinnati).
