Poll: Obama flirts with all-time low approval in Ohio as Clinton remains strong

(CNN) – Ohio voters have soured on President Barack Obama, according to a new survey, but are still upbeat about Hillary Clinton, his possible Democratic successor.

Thirty-six percent of Ohio voters approve of the way Obama is handing his job as president, according to the Quinnipiac University poll, a number that is only three percentage points above the President's Buckeye State low point of 34% in November 2013. Fifty-nine percent of Ohio voters disapprove of how the President's handling his duties.

Ohio ban on recognizing out-of-state gay marriages to fall

Updated 4:06 p.m. ET, 4/4/2014

(An earlier version of this report stated incorrectly that Ohio's ban on same-sex marriage was to be declared unconstitutional.)

(CNN) - A federal judge signaled Friday that he'll declare unconstitutional Ohio's current refusal to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states - the latest instance in which courts have challenged restrictions on the rights of legally-married gays and lesbians.

A hearing was held Friday where lawyers for several same-sex couples asked the judge to dismiss on equal protection grounds all aspects of the state's voter-approved ban on recognizing gay and lesbian couples who were legally wed elsewhere. The judge– a 2010 appointee of President Barack Obama– announced from the bench he would officially do so in coming days.

For Western cities like Las Vegas, Denver and Phoenix – all of which are vying to hold the party's presidential nomination convention – their pitches could be boiled down to this: We have both the infrastructure and political symbolism you need.

All politics are local: Senator blasts NFL blackout policy before playoff game

Update 3:34 p.m. ET, 1/3/2014: The Bengals ticket office announced Friday that the game is now sold out. The company Procter & Gamble and its brands, including Tide, Gillette, CoverGirl and Bounty, purchased remaining tickets. Kroger will distribute the tickets to military veterans and active duty service members.

Washington (CNN) – With the prospect of their Sunday game against the San Diego Chargers being blacked out of the Cincinnati market, Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio has a message for the FCC: Don’t mess with Ohio’s football.

In a letter to Tom Wheeler, the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, Brown blasts the blackout rule, a decades-old policy that prevents television outlets in the team’s home market from airing the home team game if the stadiums isn’t close to sold out. The rule aimed to prevent football fans from staying home to watch their local team play while seats at the stadium remained empty.
