2016 election county mapA tea party leader is encouraged by a Democratic super PAC that has decided it won’t compete in Ohio for the 2020 presidential election.

Priorities USA spent $133 million in 2016 supporting Hillary Clinton but the far-left PAC stated in a memo it no longer considers Ohio a target state. 

A report from Priorities USA “significantly downgrades” The Buckeye State as a battleground for Electoral College votes, The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported.

Trump carried Ohio by eight points in 2016.

Tom Zawistowski, executive director of the Portage County Tea Party, says the tea party group seconds the decision to write off the state.

MSNBC reacts to Trump win“The president has been popular here since before he won election and that hasn't wavered,” Zawistowski insists. “If anything, it's grown stronger.”

The newspaper story stated Ohio is listed as “GOP Watch” along with Texas and Iowa, while states Florida, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina are considered worthy of investing Democratic money.

Ohio is also absent from a $100 million “early engagement program” that is targeting other vital states such as Wisconsin and Michigan.

Zawistowski points out the presidential election is not just about Ohio, however, which concerns him. 

“What's unsettling is the other part of that story,” says the tea party leader, “which talks about the fact that they think that they can get the 270 electoral votes from other states and that they wouldn't even need Ohio.”
