CLEVELAND – Former President Barack Obama will campaign for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray on Cleveland’s east side Thursday night.

campaign rally for Democratic candidates will be held at the Cleveland Metropolitan School District East Professional Center at 7 p.m.

President Obama is stepping back into the political spotlight for the first time since leaving office in an attempt to boost voter turnout to help Democrats in close midterm races.

Cordray is reentering Ohio politics after leading the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau under Obama.

“It reminds voters of issues on which perhaps Mr. Cordray has an advantage,” said Case Western Reserve University Political Science Professor Joe White. “It excites the Democrats, it is an attempt to remind those Democrats who particularly like President Obama that they should turn out in this election.”
