COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - President Donald Trump and Ohio Gov. John Kasich are trading jabs on Twitter days after a special congressional election the two Republicans tried to influence too close to call. Trump skewered Kasich on Monday as a "very unpopular" governor who hurt GOP state Sen. Troy Balderson's Aug. 7 race against Democrat Danny O'Connor by "tamping down enthusiasm for an otherwise great candidate."

MASON, Ohio (AP) - Democrats are looking to what once was considered longshot territory for gains in the midterms. In southwest Ohio, Democratic House candidate Aftab Pureval is attracting national attention as he tries to unseat veteran Republican Rep. Steve Chabot, part of the Cincinnati-area political landscape for three decades. Their matchup is among dozens playing out nationally in House districts that have been afterthoughts in recent elections.

CINCINNATI (AP) - Vice President Mike Pence will visit Ohio to promote the Trump administration's tax cuts and attend campaign events for Republican candidates. Pence will speak Tuesday afternoon at a downtown Cincinnati hotel about President Donald Trump's tax reforms and ways the administration says those cuts will benefit Ohio residents and businesses. The event is sponsored by America First Policies, an organization that supports Trump's policies.

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - An Air Force base is creating a formal board to review a chaotic "active shooter" reaction that occurred on the Ohio base after a 911 call to base security. A spokeswoman for Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton says 88th Air Base Wing and installation commander Col. Tom Sherman ordered the board to review the Aug. 2 scare, the response to it and any lessons to be learned. During a search after the 911 call, a security team member shot a locked door during a sweep of the base hospital.
