WKSU is co-sponsoring a live edition of the NPR Politics Podcast this Friday in Cleveland.
It features NPR White House correspondent Tamara Keith, along with podcast partner Scott Detrow, political reporter Asma Khalid, and editor Domenico Montanaro.
Keith has an Ohio connection. She was a reporter at WOSU in Columbus providing local coverage of the 2004 presidential election.
Keith says, while not every contest hinges on Ohio, we're still an important battleground state.
