Pry, Ryan tout Obama's economic record in call

By Stephanie Warsmith Published: June 22, 2012

U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan and Summit County Executive Russ Pry were among those who touted President Barack Obama's economic record in Ohio during a conference call this morning.

Ryan said the unemployment rate in all 88 Ohio counties was lower for May than this time last year, according to figures released this week. He pointed to Obama's bail-out of the auto industry as one of the ways he helped the state.

Pry said Summit County's unemployment rate droped from 8.3 to 6.6 percent. He said Obama helped spare educator and law enforcement jobs, including 25 in Summit County and he has a plan to save more public sector jobs.

"We know his investments help workers and help communities," Pry said.

The campaign released a report this morning that details how Obama has helped Ohio's economy since he took office.
