Kaptur, UAW leader rally for Obama

BLADE STAFF

United Auto Workers national president Bob King joined local union officials and U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur on Wednesday for a union-sponsored rally outside the Lucas County Board of Election’s Early Vote Center in North Toledo.

Miss Kaptur (D., Toledo) and Mr. King praised President Obama for the 2009 federal bailout of General Motors and Chrysler and criticized GOP candidate Mitt Romney for his opposition to the auto bailout.

About 75 people, mostly UAW members, including workers at GM Powertrain and the Jeep plant, attended the rally.
