Pro-Obama group to gather near Chabot's office

Members of Ohio Action Now, a coalition of pro-Obama groups and individuals, plans a Friday rally near Republican congressman Steve Chabot's downtown office to urge him to support President Obama's plans to raise taxes on Americans making over $250,000 a year.

Chabot opposes Obama's plan.

Ohio Action Now leaders say they will present a report from Innovation Ohio, one of their member groups, that they say will show flaws in the budget proposal from House Speaker John Boehner.

The event will take place at 1 p.m. Friday on Fountain Square, at the corner of Vine and Fifth streets downtown, across from the Carew Tower, where Chabot's district office is located.
