Over the past five days, John McCain and supporters have been campaigning through Ohio.

Sarah Palin, Joe Lieberman and Arnold Schwarzenegger all made stops in the state since Oct. 30.

Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut, spoke to the crowd of about 50 people Oct. 30 at the Republican headquarters in downtown Akron.

Ohio is important. You’re going to decide this election, he said.

He told those in attendance that he was supporting McCain because he believes he has good ideas. Lieberman stated that he and McCain were friends.

Vote as if your future depended on it, he said. Because it does.

The next to visit was John McCain and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who both stopped off in Columbus.

Schwarzenegger said he has come to Ohio for 40 years for the body building competition. He proceeded to suggest that Senator Barack Obama needs to bulk up.

If only we could put some meat on his ideas, the actor-turned-governor said.

He then asked the crowd to think about who they would want beside them if they were a prisoner in a POW camp. The answer: John McCain.

McCain spoke to the audience addressing the issue of the republican track record with Ohio and the presidency. He said he knows his history and he is going to carry this state to victory.

I’m not afraid of the fight; I’m ready for the fight, McCain said.

Early Sunday morning voters went to McKinley High School vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin speak.

Are you ready to help us carry your state to victory? Palin asked.

She promised the crowd that McCain would in fact balance the federal budget by the end of his first term as president.

Palin also addressed the coverage they have been getting for all the negative ads on Senator Obama.

There is nothing wrong with calling someone out on their record or associations, she said.

She discussed policies such as energy, the economy and taxes just as other speakers had done before her.

There is only one man who has ever fought for you, and that is John McCain, she said.
