HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is slated to visit southwest Ohio next week to talk about President Barack Obama's jobs plan and how it relates to union workers and the middle class.
The Obama campaign says Biden will travel Monday to Hamilton, which is part of Republican House Speaker John Boehner's district. The campaign says Biden will talk about keeping teachers and emergency responders on the job.
The visit is meant to help mark one year since opponents of an Ohio bill limiting collective bargaining rights delivered 1.3 million signatures to get a referendum on the ballot. Educators, firefighters and police were among the union workers who successfully campaigned to turn back the measure, known as Senate Bill 5.
