Bowersox stumps for Obama in Sandusky

Crystal Bowersox put action behind her words on a frosty

Saturday evening.

Bowersox was in Sandusky to show her support for President Barack Obama, encourage people to vote early and maybe volunteer to knock on a few doors themselves.

Mike Pletcher opened the door to his home after he heard a knock.

“Oh wow, nice to meet you,” Pletcher said, as his eyes grew big in recognition.

“We are campaigning for

President Obama. Is Michele here?,” Bowersox asked.

Michele, Pletcher’s daughter, was not at home.

Bowersox was unfazed and talked to Pletcher about women’s rights and Mitt Romney.

Pletcher posed with Bowersox for a photo before the singer moved on to the next house.

“That was so cool,” Pletcher said.

He said his family has already

discussed the importance of this election and women’s rights.

“We are all Obama supporters,” Pletcher said.

Bowersox, along with Democratic volunteers Lola Finley and Patty Smith, canvassed down Campbell and Osborne streets.

A tired Bowersox, who had flown in from Oregon earlier,  made stops in Sylvania and Port Clinton before stopping in Sandusky.

“It is important to stand up for the values you believe in,” Bowersox said.
