Vice President Joe Biden campaigned for Hillary Clinton today in Ohio. He made a surprise stop in Cleveland where he spoke with volunteers before heading off to his first event in Toledo. In Toledo, he spoke about the importance of defeating Donald Trump and electing Clinton president. He outlined a number of her policy points and her focus on the middle class. Biden also spoke about the importance of electing down ballot Democrats and ensuring that Clinton had good Senators and Representatives to work with in Congress. Biden campaigned with Senate Democratic candidate Ted Strickland, who is hoping to unseat Republican Senator Rob Portman. Watch a video from the Toledo event on C-SPAN.
Biden then traveled to Dayton where he spoke to a crowd of supporters about the presidential election and how Trump has made the election less about issues and more about personalities. “Trump has so dumbed-down this election. It’s been so outrageous we’ve not covered any of the issues basically. That’s what elections are all about.” Speaking at Sinclair Community College, Biden encouraged everyone to get out and vote on November 8th. A video from the event will be added when/if available.
