Ohio's Former First Lady Heads To DNC To See History
The former first lady of Ohio, Frances Strickland, traveled alone to the Democratic National Convention. She says her husband – former Gov. Ted Strickland – will arrive later in the week. But she says she was determined to be at the DNC on day one.
“He didn’t know what his schedule was, but I was going to be where we were making history, whether he could come or not. I’m old enough that I know what all women have gone through to get to this, so I’m really happy to be here.”
Ted Strickland, who’s on the ballot this fall in a tough race against incumbent Republican Sen. Rob Portman, is a Clinton delegate at the convention.
