With references to several Ohio families and football icon Vince Lombardi, Strickland shouted and waved his arms as he listed Obama's achievements with the American auto industry.

"That's what happens when you have a president who stands up for average working people," he said. "President Barack Obama stood up for us, and now by God we will stand up for him. Quite frankly, Barack Obama knows what it's like to pay a mortgage and student loans.

"He knows what it's like to watch a beloved family member in a medical crisis and worry that treatment is out of reach. Barack Obama knows our struggles. And, my friends, he shares our values."
