Strickland Holds Obama Rally
(2008-07-09)
(WOUB) - Republican John McCain is returning to Ohio, bringing his presidential campaign to the southern part of the state.

His town hall meeting today in the Portsmouth High School gym comes less than two weeks after the candidate's last trip to Ohio, when he held events in Cincinnati and Youngstown.

Ahead of the McCain appearance, Governor Strickland hosted a rally for Democrat Barack Obama this morning at a Portsmouth union hall across the street from the high school.

Strickland called on those in the military to support Barack Obama.

The governor told the Portsmouth audience their vote will be important on election day.

Obama came to the state last week to campaign in Zanesville, in eastern Ohio.
