Obama's return: Good or bad for Democrats?

Obama's return: Good or bad for Democrats?”

Former President Barack Obama called for Democrats and others concerned about the direction of the U.S.to vote in November and fix "politics that feels broken right now", as he campaigned in statehouse and Congressional races attacking the politics and policies of his successor, Donald Trump.

Obama is rallying for the reelection of Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf and Senator Bob Casey, according to a press release from the Pennsylvania Democratic Party. And, Obama delivered a simple message Thursday headed into the fall midterm elections: Vote.

"When President Obama said that he has been to '57 States, ' very little mention in Fake News Media", Trump tweeted on Friday.

Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) is term-limited, and Democrats hope to seize back control of the office for their party, which is out of power at every level of OH government.

Obama was in closely divided OH to campaign for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray, running mate Betty Sutton, U.S. Sen. According to Politico, Cordray is neck and neck with Republican candidate, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, in the most recent polls.

Obama also praised his shepherding of the American economy and tweaked Republicans who are taking credit for good economic times under Trump, saying "When you hear these folks bragging about this economic miracle just remember when it started". Sherrod Brown, who faces a challenge from Republican Jim Renacci (reh-NAY'-see), a congressman from Wadsworth.

"Some of those fights are not over, not by a long shot", Cordray said of the continued Republican efforts to chip away at the ACA, Obama's signature policy achievement, "It's just wrong, and we're not going to let it happen".

Obama won that state in 2008 and again in 2012.

Aside from the governor's race, the party is eyeing Ohio's 12th Congressional District, where Democrat Danny O'Connor and Republican Troy Balderson are locked in a rematch following the August special election, and the state's 1st Congressional District, where GOP Rep. Steve Chabot is facing 36-year-old Hamilton County Clerk of Courts Aftab Pureval for another traditionally red seat. He resigned late previous year.

"He didn't go around trying to take credit for it", Obama said.
