On Sunday afternoon Vice President Joe Biden, his wife Dr. Jill Biden and members of their family attended a campaign rally at Terra State College in Fremont.
According to Fremont Chief of Police Timothy Wiersma, there were 1,550 people at the rally.
Vice President Biden has traveled to Ohio 11 times in 2012, but this is the first time in the Fremont-Port Clinton area and the first time Dr. Biden has traveled to Ohio for a campaign event.
The pledge of allegiance was led by James “Bill” Kelly, a World War II veteran who supports President Obama and Vice President Biden because he feels they are working to make sure veterans get the benefits they earned.
The invocation was given by Rector Daniel Orr of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, who is supporting Obama-Biden because he believes their policies are helping those most in need.
The national anthem was sung by Carrie-Atla DeChamplain of the University of Toledo, who is supporting Obama-Biden because their policies have helped her pay back her student debt.
Jason Mraz, Grammy award winning singer-songwriter and Obama-Biden supporter, entertained the appreciative crowd, beginning with his hit single “I’m Yours”.
After being introduced by Dr. Biden. the Vice President reinforced the messages that the campaign has been delivering and encouraged the supporters to get out the vote.
