Clinton on the air in Ohio on Election Day

(CNN) - He was the Democratic Party's go to guy during the campaign, and on Election Day there's still no rest for former President Bill Clinton.

The former president Tuesday called into four radio stations in Ohio, where freshman Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland is fighting for his political life in a rough re-election bid against former Rep. John Kasich, the Republican nominee. And the Democrats are fighting to defend around five House seats in the state that are considered in play.

Clinton's call in appearances on Ohio radio stations come just three days after he teamed up with Strickland at four stops on the campaign trail across the Buckeye state Saturday.

The former president started Monday in New York State, teaming up with some endangered House Democrats. Clinton then moved south to West Virginia and Kentucky, to campaign with the party's Senate nominees in those states. The former president has stumped for Democrats in many states and districts with moderate to conservative voters, areas where President Barack Obama may not be so popular.

Clinton ended the day before the midterms at a nighttime rally in Florida with Rep. Kendrick Meek, the Democrats' Senate nominee in the Sunshine state.

    Save your voice President Clinton. You'll need it for Hillary to beat Obama in the primaries. Watch Obama's approval numbers tank now!

    I strongly believe that the republicans r not going to control both senate and the house. I have faith the democrats will control majority of the senate and the house. President obama has done a great job with the help of the Lord running this country and the news media need to stop critizing every thing he tries to do. Especially these anaylist; do they feel they could do a better job? I do not think so. Pres. Obama stand on your faith and God will direct your path.

    More Republicans in the House only means more NO votes against the middle class and the poor. Remember the rich got richer during the economic crisis and the Republicans plan on keeping it that way.
