Ex-Ohio governor Strickland to campaign in NH for Obama
MANCHESTER — Democratic former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland will campaign in New Hampshire for President Barack Obama on Monday and Tuesday, the campaign said Friday.
Strickland had been scheduled to appear in Manchester on July 20, but the event was cancelled due to the movie theater shootings in Colorado.
The campaign says Strickland will speak at events as part of the campaign’s “Make it in America” tour.
He will be making campaign stops in Concord, Somersworth, Rochester, Manchester, Keene and Claremont, among other towns across the state.
Details of individual stops will be announced soon, the campaign said.
“Governor Strickland will discuss the President’s commitment to small businesses and his focus on growing an economy with a strong middle class,” according to the campaign.
Strickland served as governor of Ohio from 2007 to 2011 and is a national co-chair of the Obama campaign.
He will visit manufacturing businesses and speak at grassroots events.
