McCain Campaigns for Second Day in Ohio

John McCain has his work cut out for him today when he visits the Youngstown area for the second time in three months. The economically depressed region is a Democratic stronghold cool to the Republican candidate's position on trade and jobs.

Democratic Governor Strickland says he sees nothing in McCain's economic policies that would appeal to people in the Mahoning Valley.

A senior McCain adviser says the residential contender wants to talk to all of America.

McCain is expected to hold a town hall meeting with workers at the sprawling GM plant in Lordstown. On Thursday McCain addressed a range of issues during a similar meeting in Cincinnati. Katie Orr of Ohio Public Radio Station WVXU reports.
