LaTourette: Growing sense in GOP that Obama 'has won this round'

(CNN) – Republican Rep. Steve LaTourette of Ohio said Thursday he's starting to see more openness among House Republicans for the president's pitch to raise tax rates on the top 2% of income earners.

The nine-term congressman, who's retiring in January, said he noticed a turning point on Wednesday when Republicans held their weekly meeting with House Speaker John Boehner–but he added Democrats need to meet them in the middle, too.

LaTourette: Tea party response to Romney loss is 'crap'

(CNN) – After some tea party leaders blamed Mitt Romney's loss in the presidential election on his lack of conservatism, Rep. Steve LaTourette of Ohio, a moderate Republican who announced his retirement in July, offered sharp criticism to their reaction.

"There's a one-word phrase we use in Ohio for that: Crap. That's nonsense," LaTourette said Thursday on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien."

Brown defeats Mandel in contentious Ohio Senate race

Washington (CNN) - CNN projects Democratic incumbent Sen. Sherrod Brown has won a second term by defeating Republican Treasurer Josh Mandel in Ohio, a state that was closely tied to the presidential race.

Primarily because of those frequent trips from President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney, the contest between Brown and Mandel played out in Ohio against the backdrop of the presidential election.

Romney breaks tradition with Election Day campaigning

Columbus, Ohio (CNN) – Mitt Romney will not spend the final hours of the presidential race in his hometown, as is traditional for a candidate, but instead will embark upon a last-minute push for votes in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The two Election Day campaign stops, which were added to the schedule Monday afternoon, cap off a campaign season of upheaval, unconventional moves and late-in-the-game surges that make Tuesday's outcome difficult to predict.

Ohio secretary of state defends election decisions

Washington (CNN) - As the eyes of the nation look at Ohio, the state's chief elections official is defending some of his decisions, which have been met with criticism. One of the moves Jon Husted made was to send all 7 million registered voters in the state an application for an absentee ballot instead of waiting for those who wanted one to ask.

The letter sent on August 31 said, "Most voters will choose to cast their ballots in the way Ohioans have done it for more than 200 years – visiting their local polling place on Election Day. As a registered voter, you also have the opportunity to vote through the mail from the privacy of your own home."
