Just how all-pervasive is this presidential campaign in Ohio, the swing state of all swing states?
Well, we know that the presidential candidates, President Obama and Mitt Romney, are camping out in the state with regularity – Romney at a rally at Lake Erie College in Painesville Friday; Obama on his way to rallies in Cincinnati and Columbus on Monday – but that is only part of the story.
Both Vice President Biden and the Republican nominee for vice president, Paul Ryan, were in Clermont County within days of each other last week.
For decades now, Democrats running in Ohio - from president to governor to a host of lesser offices - have turned to one man to help give their campaigns a boost - John H. Glenn Jr., the Mercury astronaut who was the first American to orbit the earth.
Glenn, now 90 years old, left the U.S. Senate in 1999 after representing Ohio in the U.S. Senate for 24 years; and he remains one of the most popular figures in Ohio politics - not only for his service in the Senate but for his status as an icon of the U.S. space program.
A release from the Obama Campaign says the President will speak at Seasongood Pavilion in Eden Park, Monday morning you can get in starting at 10:00. The event is free, but you will need a ticket. They'll be available starting at 9:00 AM tomorrow at these locations:
