It was the turn of the Republican candidates for president and vice president to rally a Northeast Ohio crowd of about 10,000 in North Canton last night.
Thousands crowded into Hoover High's baseball stadium not for a ballgame, but for a political rally with the Republican presidential ticket. Governor Mitt Romney and Representative Paul Ryan met up in North Canton after campaigning separately earlier in the day..
The Oak Ridge Boys warmed up the crowd on a chilly late October night as Ohio - and its issues - once again took center stage this election season.
Oversized U.S. and Ohio flags provided background for both candidates, and actress and Cleveland native Patricia Heaton provided the celebrity star power, noting that the only thing worse than being a conservative in Hollywood...was "being a Cleveland Browns fan".
The visit by Romney and Ryan is just the latest by presidential contenders to Northeast Ohio.
President Obama rallied at Burke Lakefront Airport the night before, and is expected in both Youngstown and Akron again next week. Vice President Joe Biden has also been a frequent Ohio visitor.
