Presidential candidates look to red states and blue states for their voting base, but it's the purple states, or swing states, that decide the election.

Last week, NPR's Tony Cox spoke with Democratic delegates from battleground states about the issues they thought would influence voters where they live.

Today, he's joined by three Republican delegates: Linda Lee Tarver, a delegate from Michigan; Dan Williams of Minnesota; and Shaker Heights Councilman Jim Brady, who is a Republican delegate from Ohio.
