The Democratic candidates at the top of the fall ballot are hitting the road for a bus tour of Ohio. The candidates say their platform is a universal message that will connect to more than just liberal voters.
The bus has four campaign promises written on the side: “affordable health care, quality education, good paying jobs, leaders you can trust.”
Democratic Party Chair David Pepper says the message from governor nominee Rich Cordray and down the slate connects with independent voters and even moderate Republicans.
“Those messages which we will be taking to every county in the state are ones that will resonate everywhere. Every one of these kitchen table issues are ones people really do care about,” Pepper said.
Republican governor nominee Mike DeWine’s spokesperson said Cordray and the Democratic ticket keep focusing on their opposition to other’s policies without laying out their own, calling the tour a “road trip of grievances.”
