Sample Book Insights:
#1 I was not being cute when I said I was from the Midwest. I meant it. The Midwest is a bunch of smaller states further west and north. Ohio is not just one major city, but a host of them, and countless mid-sized cities to go with them.
#2 Ohio was the center of it all, as it was the state whose combination of big cities and small towns and farmland approximated the mix found in the nation more than any other state.
#3 Ohio was a swing state, and it was often the final state that decided which candidate would become president. It was a balance of big city, small town, suburban, and rural areas, which meant that the candidates had to appeal to a diverse set of voters.
#4 As an Ohioan on the East Coast, I learned that everyone had some connection to Ohio. It made Ohio feel more central.
