Ohio GOP Chair Says Trump Will Run On The Economy

Supporters of President Trump are canvassing Ohio during the Republican National Convention, trying to rally support for November's election. Although 2020 has been upended by the coronavirus pandemic, the Republican party says a main message is the impact Trump has had on the economy. Ohio Public Radio's Andy Chow reports. 

Ohio Republican Party Chair Jane Timken is among the many party leaders stumping for Trump during the Republican National Convention, which is now composed of smaller meetups around the state instead of the larger fanfare of an in-person convention. 

 

Timken says Trump delivered a successful economy before the pandemic, and that the country is already seeing recovery. 

 

Timken Bite 1: "If there's anyone who's going to lead us out of a pandemic, recession, and shut down it's the president. He's proven that his strategies work." 

 

Democrats argue Trump mishandled the country's response to the pandemic by making cuts to global health security programs and not taking the virus more seriously when it started to spread.
