A packed house for Barack Obama in Cleveland

(Cleveland) - People waited in long lines for several hours to hear former President Barack Obama speak about the importance of the midterm elections. 

There was a standing room only crowd at the Cleveland Schools East Professional Building at East 79th and Superior Avenue. 

The enthusiastic audience cheered as the ex-Chief of State took a few jabs at the Republicans, and the recent controversies involving President Trump. 

Obama urged voters, Democratic, independent and Republican to return ethics and sanity to government this fall. 

Mr. Obama was joined on stage by candidate for governor Richard Cordray with running mate Betty Sutton, and Senator Sherrod Brown who is running for re-election.
