Obama laments ‘broken’ politics in stumping for Ohio Democrats

In his speech, Obama encouraged support for Cordray from voters, despite their political party, by pointing out that it was under his presidency and Democratic leadership that the economy began to rise.

"By the time I left office, wages were rising, and poverty and uninsured rates were falling", Obama said.

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

Obama won that state in 2008 and again in 2012.

Obama is rallying for the reelection of Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf and Senator Bob Casey, according to a press release from the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. "We can flip the balance of power back to the American people".

"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. Republicans say they welcome Obama's return and say he could energize Republican voters.

Bets for upcoming Southampton vs Arsenal fight
Neither Arsene Wenger nor his players could afford themselves to lose another match if they still want to be in the top four. Arsenal is still keeping the dream to be qualified in Champions League after the victory over Manchester on Sunday.

Joining the rally were former Rep. Betty Sutton, Cordray's running mate, and Ohio Sen.

Trump is also pursuing an ambitious schedule of appearances, making the case that more Republicans must be elected to stop Democrats from obstructing his agenda.

Obama spoke about how he appointed Cordray as the nation's first ever consumer watchdog. Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich is term-limited.

Republicans are also seeking to use the former president's visit as a reminder of Cordray's tenure at the consumer watchdog agency that became mired in controversy a year ago when his retirement sparked a legal battle over who would replace him.

Mulvaney has been praised by Republicans for exercising restraint at an agency they saw as unaccountable, while liberals led by Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA, who helped create the bureau, have accused him of dismantling it and putting consumers at risk. "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. "He didn't tweet about it, he just did it".
