COLUMBUS, Ohio — Democrats are going all out in their final campaign push to keep Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland in control of a state critical to the 2012 presidential election.

The weekend's campaign lineup in Ohio features big names — President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton — reflecting the party's fears that it could lose the governorship and as many as six House seats in Tuesday's elections.

Strickland handily won office in 2006 by more than 23 percentage points. He now finds himself struggling to remain in the job against former Republican Rep. John Kasich (KAY'-sik). Polls have shown a tight race.

The election's impact would extend beyond this year, affecting redistricting and support Obama would need from the battleground state for a re-election bid.
