Clinton's campaign trail tour goes on

(CNN) - One day after Bill Clinton teamed up in Pennsylvania with Democratic Senate nominee Rep. Joe Sestak, the former president lends a helping hand to Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland.

Clinton joins the Ohio governor Tuesday for rallies and fundraisers in Cleveland and Columbus. The former six term representative and Methodist minister is facing a tough re-election bid this year against former Ohio congressman John Kasich, the Republican nominee. Recent polls suggest that Kasich leads Strickland from the single digits to low double digits. The two candidates face off in a debate Tuesday night.

Clinton has been very active on the campaign trail this election cycle, often helping out Democrats in states where surveys suggest President Barack Obama is not so popular.

Strickland will be getting more visits from high profile Democrats. CNN's learned that Vice President Joe Biden will team up with the governor in Dayton and Akron on September 20. Obama also stumps with Strickland again in Cleveland on October 20.

    Any democrat who campaigns in Ohio should make a concerted effort to slam John Boehner whenever they ge the chance to.

    I am wondering what the king of lying is lying about on the campaign trail. I see where he is supporting his buddy Charlie Rangel, those liars have to stick together Ii guess. It is a sad thing that the best the democrats can do is to get the lying king to talk about the other party.
