President Barack Obama's campaign kicked off its "Made in Ohio" manufacturing tour this morning with a stop in Akron.
William Crooks, executive secretary-treasurer of the Tri-County Regional Labor Council, and Sandra Kurt, a Summit County Council member, were the speakers at the event at the Laborers International Hall on Wolf Ledges Parkway.
The two-week, statewide tour also will include a visit from Vice President Joe Biden to Columbus Thursday.
Obama's campaign released a report today detailing how Obama's policies have helped Ohio's manufacturing industry, with the state adding 44,700 manufacturing jobs.
