Two African American state representatives recently raised concerns they have been stopped unnecessarily by security at Columbus' Capitol Square. Rep. Emilia Sykes, one of the elected officials, said that she observed her White counterparts being allowed to pass, while she was not. 

There's a slim margin between Democratic candidate former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray and Republican State Attorney General Mike DeWine. Cordray, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll, is three percentage points ahead of DeWine. 

We'll also talk about Pharmacy Benefit Managers, middlemen who end up costing consumers. We'll explore what Ohio is doing following a story from the Columbus Dispatch.
