Ye olde Merriam-Webster online (probably my most-used site -
defines the Midwest as follows:

region N central U.S. including area around Great Lakes & in upper
Mississippi valley from Ohio & sometimes Kentucky on the E to North Dakota,
South Dakota, Nebraska, & Kansas on the W

Now, I wouldn't consider Kentucky to be Midwest (then again, I live less
than 45 miles from KY, so if I'm in the Midwest, I guess they can be, too!).
Of course, if you look at a map, it's hard to imagine that any region that
big could be known by a single name. To a lot of people, I think "Midwest"
really just means "somewhere in the middle of the country."

Just an aside, Tom and someone else are both in Ohio, and they both have
said they
are in the Midwest. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but the Midwest ends at
or so I ALWAYS thought.
