COLUMBUS, OH –– Today, Ted Strickland campaigned across Central Ohio, participating in a roundtable discussion on economic issues, visiting an Ohio Together coordinated campaign office, touring Columbus Oktoberfest, and addressing the Ohio Democratic Party’s state convention.
At a roundtable discussion in Pickerington, Strickland discussed his Ohio Families First plan to restore economic fairness for the middle class. Strickland’s plan includes a $1,000 tax cut for middle class Ohioans, increasing wages and overtime protections for workers, and cracking down on unfair trade deals like those championed by Senator Portman that have cost Ohio over 300,000 jobs to places like China and Mexico.
Strickland visited volunteers and organizers at an Ohio Together coordinated campaign office in Columbus, thanking them for their hard work and highlighting the stakes of this election.
Strickland stopped by the Ohio Democratic Party’s state convention and addressed the assembled delegates, contrasting how he’ll fight for working families with Senator Portman’s record of pushing the agenda of the rich and the powerful.
Finally, Strickland capped off the day by joining State Representative Kristin Boggs and greeting voters at Columbus Oktoberfest.
Tomorrow, Strickland will visit the Ohio Together coordinated campaign office in Cheviot, Ohio. Media wishing to cover the event can RSVP to Avery Jaffe, firstname.lastname@example.org.
