Obama Draws Thin Crowd in Ohio Rally

Monday, 01 Nov 2010 09:22 AM

President Barack Obama tried to pump up Democrats Sunday in an indoor arena that was described as about half full, according to a New York Times report.  Just 8,000 people attended the Democratic National Committee’s "Moving America Forward" Ohio rally at Cleveland State University’s Wolstein Center — where the capacity is 13,000.

Biden Jr., considers getting Democrats to the polls his most important mission."

Obama was in Ohio to give a leg up to Gov. Ted Strickland, who is in a close race for re-election.

“We’ve got to get Cleveland out to vote!” Obama said. “We’ve got to get everybody in Ohio out to vote.’’
