CINCINNATI, Ohio (CNN) Pulling up to the Election Express: Bobby Hilton, a pastor with a radio show show in Cincinnati. He says he was listening to CNN on his car radio, heard “Ballot Bowl” and decided to come look for us.
What are his listeners talking about? No mystery here.: the economy. Ohio’s unemployment is higher than the national average at 7.4 percent. “People are hurting”, he says and they want to hear more from the candidates.
Hilton is a Barack Obama supporter. He says he’s glad to hear Obama talk about helping Main Street. But, Hilton says, he still isn’t convinced he is hearing enough specifics from either candidate. What’s his reaction to the Wall Street crisis? “Shock”. But he says Cincinnati has been feeling the ripple effects of a weak economy for some time.
