Ohio held its first primary in 1912. On the Democratic side, Ohio Gov. Judso
n Harmon beat New Jersey Gov. Woodrow Wilson. But Wilson won the presidency,
disproving the Clinton theory of Ohio politics almost a century before she
came up with it.
Fast-forward to May 1932. Favorite son George White wins the Democratic prim
ary with the expectation that he will support former secretary of war Newton
Baker, but Franklin D. Roosevelt goes on to become president.
Ohio historian (and Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist) Thomas Suddes also poi
nted to the May 1952 Ohio primary when the GOP at-large delegates were all p
ledged to Ohio Sen. Robert A. Taft. Dwight D. Eisenhower, who eventually won
the presidency, was not on the ballot.
In 1960, Ohio's Democratic primary was won by a favorite son, Gov. Michael D
iSalle, who eventually pledged his delegates to Kennedy after arm-twisting f
rom the Kennedy brothers. Favorite sons also won both parties' 1964 and 1968
In 1968, for example, Gov. James A. Rhodes controlled all 58 delegates to th
e GOP convention, withholding his votes until it became apparent that Richar
d M. Nixon would win the nomination. Rhodes later achieved a degree of notor
iety by ordering the National Guard to suppress antiwar protests at Kent Sta
te in 1970.
Clinton "has taken a little bit of a liberty here," said Herb Asher, a profe
ssor of political science at Ohio State University. "Maybe what she meant to
say was as far back as she can remember."
