Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), is kicking off a multi-state bus tour in Finneytown Friday - a tour aimed in Ohio at touting the re-election of President Obama and U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown.
The AFT - which represents about 1.5 million teachers nationwide - is one of the most active labor unions supporting the re-election of President Obama.
In the pantheon of campaign surrogates for the Obama-Biden campaign, few can claim more star power than former president Bill Clinton.
But, Thursday in Parma, a Cleveland suburb, the 42nd President of the United States may have met his match and then some in the "star power" category when he attends a get-out-the-vote rally at Cuyahoga Community College with rock legend Bruce Springsteen.
For decades now, Democratic candidates running in Ohio - from president to mayor - have turned to one man for help, the one man who is probably the most popular Democrat in the Buckeye State - former senator and astronaut John Glenn.
