Sending Trump to Ohio Might Be a Gift to the Dems

Get out to the polls and vote - for people who aren't even on the ballot. That's the clear message our current POTUS is spreading far and wide with a series of new tweets.

Trump is urging Ohio voters to support Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Ohio) in the state's upcoming special election. The main issue here is that Stivers is not even a candidate in the special election. Go figure.

"Congressman Steve Stivers of Ohio has done a fantastic job as chair of the [National Republican Congressional Committee]," Trump wrote in the since-deleted tweet. "Go out and vote for Steve on Aug 7."

The GOP is sending Trump to Ohio this weekend in an effort to secure the votes that will be a game-changer for the 2018 midterms. However, Trump's not the brightest bulb in the box, as his recent tweets reinforced.

Once the Stivers tweet was deleted, Trump posted a new message minutes later backing GOP state senator Troy Balderson. He won a 10-way GOP primary and will square off with Democrat Danny O'Connor on Tuesday.

Trump tweeted: "Looking forward to being in the Great State of Ohio on Saturday night where I will be campaigning hard for a truly talented future Congressman, @Troy_Balderson. See you all then!"

Balderson's district has been staunchly GOP-led since 1980. But if all else fails, Trump can just send in his wanna be bride daughter Ivanka to "fix" things.

Let's state the obvious: a 50% approval rating is not something to tweet happily about by any means. But thanks for playing!
