Bellefontaine, Ohio -
Former Governor of Iowa Tom Vilsack campaigning for President Obama in Logan County today.
Vilsack spoke to a group of area volunteers at Bunker Hill Farm, thanking them for all their work and letting them know their votes are crucial to winning this election. Vilsack told the crowd that Obama supports the middle class and it's apparent that his opponent does not.
The former governor brought up Romney's recent comments in which he said "47 percent of America feels entitled to healthcare, food and housing." Vilsack says that remark was offensive to many Americans, including himself. He says without the government, he wouldn't have been able to put himself through law school.
Vilsack's official title is the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, but he did not want to speak on topics concerning his official responsibilities. That means questions about the new farm bill, a piece of legislation that would provide support for farmers affected by the drought, was off limits.
