Presidential Campaigns Making Ohio Stops This Week


Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine campaigned in Dayton Monday. With a month until early voting begins, the major party presidential campaigns are planning more visits to Ohio this week.  Nick Castele of member station WCPN in Cleveland reports.

Tim Kaine spoke at Stivers School for the Arts. He had been planning an event in Northeast Ohio on Tuesday, but the Clinton campaign said that has been postponed. Instead, Kaine will travel to Michigan.

Republican nominee Donald Trump will be back in Ohio this week for a Wednesday night rally in Canton. He attended a fundraiser there about a month ago.

And Hillary Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, is scheduled to speak in Columbus and Dayton on Thursday. The campaign says she’ll address millennial voters and discuss her mother’s college affordability plans. The Democratic nominee last visited the state on Labor Day. Since the conventions, not a week has gone by without an Ohio visit from one major party presidential ticket or the other.
