Democratic Vice Presidential Nominee Tim Kaine motivates supporters before they go to canvass for the Clinton campaign in Upper Arlington

Two days after the Trump campaign sent its vice presidential candidate to Columbus, the Clinton team sent its counterpart to central Ohio to rally volunteers to go out and knock on doors for the Democratic presidential nominee. Kaine leaned on the importance of winning the Buckeye State.

Tim Kaine focused on the differing tones of the campaigns, saying Hillary Clinton builds a community of respect and Donald Trump runs a campaign of insults. And he also noted Trump’s admission that he hasn’t paid taxes in more than a decade.

“Don’t tell me you’re going to be great for the military if you’ve been stiffing them for years. Don’t tell me you’re going to be great for the vets if you’ve been stiffing them for years. You’ll be great for teachers if you’ve been stiffing them for years,” said Kaine.

Trump’s Ohio spokesperson responded with a statement targeting the Clinton email leaks, saying it shows Clinton wants to open trade, which will send jobs out of Ohio.
