Superdelegate Ohio Governor Ted Strickland will address the convention floor tonight at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.
“It’ll be a relatively short speech, but I will try to speak to the economic concerns of Ohioans, and of Americans. I will talk about the need for change. I will talk about the fact that with John McCain we get just more of what we already have. I will talk about Barack Obama’s economic proposals that I think will turn this economy around and get us back on the right track,” Strickland said.
