Obama Showering Ohio With Attention And Money
Jerry Markon and Alice Crites September 25
After President Obama pledged in March to create up to 15 manufacturing centers nationwide, the first federal grant went to a place at the heart of his affections: Ohio.
When the Obama administration awarded tax credits to promote clean energy, the $125 million taken home by Ohio companies was nearly four times the average that went to other states.
And when a Cleveland dairy owner wanted to make more ricotta cheese, he won what was then the largest loan in the history of the U.S. Small Business Administration.
One of the tastiest investments the government has ever made, the president joked as he mentioned the dairy and other businesses his administration has helped in the state.
It goes without saying that, every four years, presidential candidates shower battleground states with attention. This time around, its Obama in Ohio, doling out the perks of office all the time.
He will return to the state Wednesday to barnstorm in Bowling Green and Kent, making what will be his 29th visit since taking office. Excluding D.C.s neighboring states, Virginia and Maryland, thats more than any state except New York, where he often flies to raise money, and far more than other swing states, including Florida (22 visits), Colorado (14) and Wisconsin (9), according to White House records.
Either Obama or Vice President Biden has popped up in the Buckeye State every three weeks on average since they took office.
