The Ohio Democratic Party has scheduled former President Bill Clinton as the keynote speaker for its state dinner on June 13 as the popular former president campaigns and raises money for Democrats heading into the midterm elections.

"We are thrilled to welcome back to Ohio President Clinton, a lifelong fighter for working families and one of the greatest leaders of our time," Chris Redfern, Ohio Democratic Party chairman, said in a statement, Politico reported.

Clinton is expected to play a major role in the midterm elections as Republicans seek to regain control of the Senate.

Daily Beast columnist Robert Shrum said that the 42nd president is exactly the person Democrats need to be the "strategic driving force" in the face of "a daunting midterm season."

Clinton's major piece of advice for Democrats so far is to not run away from Obamacare in their re-election campaigns, but to embrace it.

Clinton's wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, is a considering running for president in 2016 but has not been campaigning on behalf of 2014 candidates, Politico said.

Republicans are expected to make the midterm elections about Obamacare, which has been unpopular due to its botched roll out.

A poll from late February found a higher percentage of voters saying they planned to support GOP candidates in November versus Democrats.
