Obama laments ‘broken’ politics in stumping for Ohio Democrats

"When you vote you have the power to make sure a family keeps their health insurance, you can save somebody's life, that power is in your hands", Obama urged the crowd. Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich is term-limited.

Obama drew a contrast between Cordray's polite - some say boring - style and the president's. Sherrod Brown, who faces a challenge from Republican Jim Renacci (reh-NAY'-see), a congressman from Wadsworth.

A Democrat hasn't won a statewide race in OH since 2012.

Obama selected Cordray as the first director of the CFPB, established after the 2008 financial crisis to police mortgages, credit cards and other products. "He just did it", Obama said.

Key to statewide victory in 2018 will be boosting turnout in northeast OH and the Cleveland area, Democratic strongholds with a large African-American population that helped carry Obama to victory in the state.

"Cordray will destroy your state", Trump said during the August 24 Ohio Republican Party state dinner in Columbus. But he's not just coming to OH, he's not just coming to Cleveland, he's coming to East Cleveland.

Hillary Clinton's margin of victory dipped voter turnout in Cuyahoga County, where Cleveland is located, from just over 670,000 to under 620,000, according to data from the Ohio Secretary of State's office.

George Conway's tweet was in response to President Trump's mocking of Obama mistakenly saying he had been to "57 states" in a country that has just 50 states - something he decried going underreported on by the "fake news media".

CLEVELAND -The race for OH governor received some high-profile support Thursday. "We can flip the balance of power back to the American people because you are the only check on bad policy; you are the only real check on abuses of power".

National Democrats are optimistic that the mild-mannered Cordray can do just that. "They don't think their voices are heard or respected in Columbus and they say nobody is fighting on their behalf and they're right; we've made progress, but we need more and we need an economy that works out not just for some of us, but for all of us", Cordray said.

Former President Barack Obama is visiting closely divided OH to campaign for gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray and other Democrats.

"The recovery started under Barack Obama", he continued.
