President Barack Obama spoke to thousands of people at Bowling Green State University. College students made up the majority of the crowd, and the President talked about issues that mattered to them.
Obama said his education provided him with so many opportunities, and he wants young people today to have that same advantage. He said no student should ever have to put aside a college acceptance letter because they can't afford it. He hopes to continue to provide more financial aid and pell grants to struggling students.
Along with making education more affordable, Obama also talked about strengthening the middle class. He told the crowd that America has already tried top-down economics, and it hasn't worked. He said his plan is to continue to grow the economy from the middle out.
In closing, the President urged voters to let their voices be heard in the upcoming election. This is the 13th visit Obama has made this year to Ohio. He also stopped in Kent Ohio this afternoon. Meanwhile, Obama's opponent Mitt Romney is in Toledo tonight, continuing his bus tour through Ohio.
