Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has made his first presidential campaign visit to Ohio. 

The whirlwind trip took the Democratic candidate first to Chillicothe, where he met with the mayor and sat in on a round table about the opioid crisis. Bloomberg said he was struck by the drugs’ broad impact, cutting across racial and socioeconomic lines.
