Cordray, the former federal consumer watchdog, faces Republican state Attorney General Mike DeWine in one of the season’s most closely watched governor’s races.

Republican Gov. John Kasich  is term-limited, and Democrats hope to seize back control of the office for their party, which is out of power at every level of Ohio government.

Also appearing with Obama at the rally Thursday in Cleveland will be U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, who faces a challenge from Republican Jim Renacci, a congressman from Wadsworth.

The appearance is part of a swing across the country by Obama to boost Democrats’ efforts to win House seats and state elections.

The event begins at 7 p.m. at the Cleveland Metropolitan School District East Professional Center Gymnasium.
