CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Rep. John Boccieri (boh-CHEHR'-ee) ran offstage during a speech by Bill Clinton after the congressman received word that his pregnant wife had gone into labor.

Boccieri quickly left the podium Saturday while the former president addressed a crowd of about 1,000 people in Canton, about an hour south of Cleveland.

Clinton joked: "You'd be amazed how many times I take a picture with a very pregnant lady and then she immediately gives birth."

Boccieri, a Democrat, is locked in a closely watched race with Republican Jim Renacci (ruh-NAY'-say).
