COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio Capitol Journal Reporter Jake Zuckerman reports from Columbus that President Donald Trump supporters are gathering in front of the Ohio Statehouse to protest the election results certification that was scheduled to take place at the U.S. Capitol Wednesday. 

The certification had to be postponed after crowds of the president's supporters marched to the Capitol, breached police barricades and made their way into U.S. Senate chambers.
