Strickland votes for Clinton, says Ohio crucial for her


COLUMBUS Gov. Ted Strickland says it would be difficult for Hillary Clinton to win the Democratic presidential nomination without taking Ohio's March 4 primary.

The governor says Ohio and Texas are the most important upcoming states in the primary battle between Clinton and Barack Obama.

Strickland says while he admires Obama and his proposals, Clinton has more experience and could hold her own during a tough presidential race. The Democratic governor endorsed Clinton last year.

Strickland cast his vote for the New York senator Monday at the Franklin County Board of Elections in Columbus, to draw attention to the ability to vote early in Ohio.

Meanwhile, the Obama campaign announced it would begin airing its first statewide television ad Tuesday.
