Q. What serious issue in your state would you like the next president to address?

The issues that are of concern to Ohio are the issues that are of concern to most citizens and delegates of all the states, particularly energy, national security and the economy. Those are things that affect everybody, whether it's Ohio or Minnesota or California or New York . There might be one exception, and that relates to coal energy. Ohio is a big energy-producing state, but that's just part of the energy package which everyone's concerned about.
