Republican John McCain kicked off a flurry of presidential campaign stops in battleground Ohio this week with a rally yesterday in northeastern Ohio, pledging that he’ll deliver on his promises while charging that Democrat Barack Obama’s record doesn’t match his rhetoric.
McCain, traveling with running mate Sarah Palin, addressed a boisterous crowd at the Walter F. Ehrnfelt Recreation and Senior Center near Cleveland.
The Alaska governor — greeted yesterday with chants of “Sarah! Sarah!” — noted the “warm and strong welcome here in Strongsville,” with a crowd of about 1,500 packed into a sweaty gym and about 3,500 watching on video from an overflow area.
