BOWLING GREEN, OH – Today, Ted Strickland continued his ‘Ohio is Not for Sale’ tour with stops in Grand Rapids, Toledo and Bowling Green. At each stop, Strickland highlighted how he’ll fight for working people in the Senate -- in contrast to Senator Portman who has been propped up by millions of dollars in campaign spending from his rich and powerful friends in exchange for pushing their agenda at the expense of Ohioans who actually work for a living.
This week, Strickland also released a new Medium post, “Ohio is Not for Sale,” and a new television ad, ”$50 Million” -- highlighting Senator Portman’s record of looking out for his wealthy and well-connected campaign backers at the expense of Ohio’s working families. The Ohio Democratic Party has also released a research memo detailing Portman’s record of looking out for his special interest campaign contributors on issues like trade and retirement security.
Strickland spent the morning at the 40th Annual Grand Rapids Applebutter Fest where he greeted Wood County residents and businesses.
In Toledo and Bowling Green, Strickland and activist Gloria Steinem visited volunteers and organizers at Ohio Together coordinated campaign offices to highlight the stakes in this election.
Yesterday, Strickland rallied with steelworkers at United Steelworkers (USW) Local 2 in Akron, joined Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and Americans for Responsible Solutions launch the Ohio leg of its 2016 Vocal Majority bus tour and held a gun safety roundtable in Lakewood, and stopped by the Lorain County Historical Society BBQ.
