Biden rallies in Bowling Green

Report by Tanieya Lewis

Bowling Green, OH (WTOL) - Presidential politics took over Bowling Green for a second time this week.

Biden's Republican counterpart was at BGSU just a few days ago, as the the home stretch of this 2008 race has candidates focusing on the swing states.

Senator Joe Biden made stops in Lima and Kettering yesterday, picking up the campaign in Marion before last night's rally at Bowling Green State University.

On a brisk November first, the outdoor rally at BGSU brought the heat to Democratic supporters.

With less than three days left, vice presidential hopeful Joe Biden urged Ohio voters to make a difference at the polls.

He said, "It's time for us together to get america back on its feet for the change we need, for the country we love!"

Barack Obama's running mate wasted no time attacking the Senator's opponent John McCain's ideas for economic recovery, saying, "He hasn't seen the light. And folks, we're going to turn the lights on for John McCain and for all the nation!"

Biden pointed fingers at the current administration, saying it has left Ohio families 2,000 dollars poorer, and also saying more of the same policies would come from the candidate endorsed Saturday by Vice President Dick Cheney.

"Folks, I'm not surprised," Biden said, "Dick Cheney has been wrong on everything else the last eight years!"

The Delaware senator says unity is only way to turn things around.

"We can't lead this world as a divided country," he said. "And they know only we have the capacity to put this world back on track. So folks we can't strengthen this economy as long as we pick one region, one religion, one nation one, we can't continue these politics."

Warning that time is running out to set things right in a broken nation, Biden concluded that this is a transformational election.
