In The Region:
Former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland addressed a cheering throng at the Democratic National Convention last night in Charlotte North Carolina. Like Governor Kasich in Tampa, the Democrat also said things are getting better in the Buckeye state. But he offered different reasons than his successor.   From Charlotte WKSU’s Mark Urycki reports.

In Charlotte, everyone knows Ohio could be a make-or-break state for the presidential election. So delegates cheered ecstatically when Ted Strickland told them Mr. Obama’s investment in GM and Chrysler brought back thousands of Ohio manufacturing jobs.  

“Just last month, GM announced a plan to invest $200 million in Lordstown, keeping 5,000 jobs in Ohio and building the next generation of the Chevy Cruze — a car we are proud to say is made entirely in Ohio.”

Strickland has also been campaigning for the president this summer by going on the attack against Mitt Romney. In Charlotte, he said Romney profited from companies that outsourced American Jobs. 

“Mitt Romney has so little economic patriotism that even his money needs a passport. It summers on the beaches of the Cayman Islands and winters on the slopes of the Swiss Alps.”

The former Ohio governor is an Obama campaign co-chairman in Ohio. But so many Ohio delegates are wearing 'TED' buttons that the 71-year old may well be setting up his own next political race.
