Biden reaches out to blue-collar voters

PARMA, OHIO - Nine and a half weeks before Election Day, the Hillary Clinton campaign is reaching out to shore up its base.

Vice President Joe Biden made campaign stops Thursday to rally UAW members who work at the Lordstown and Parma General Motors plants. The Parma stop in the early evening was at the United Auto Workers Hall in Parma.

At a morning stop in Warren, Biden reminded auto workers that their industry is alive and healthy because of the auto bailout received by Chrysler and General Motors.

Then-Senator Hillary Clinton backed the multi-billion-dollar loans to the auto industry. Donald Trump has made comments both in favor and against it.

In Warren, Biden spoke off-the-cuff, referring to his family's working class roots in Scranton. He told auto workers that Trump would likely work against unions and has claimed U.S. factory workers are overpaid.

The UAW has endorsed Clinton because of her support for the bailout and her recent conversion to be against the Trans Pacific Partnership and other allegedly lopsided trade deals.

On Monday in Cleveland, Hillary Clinton ill reach out to African American supporters with an appearance at the annual 11th Congressional District  Parade and Picnic at Luke Easter Park.
