Teachers' union brings pro-Obama bus tour to Cincinnati

Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), is kicking off a multi-state bus tour in Finneytown Friday - a tour aimed in Ohio at touting the re-election of President Obama and U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown.

The AFT - which represents about 1.5 million teachers nationwide - is one of the most active labor unions supporting the re-election of President Obama.

At 4:15 p.m. Friday, Weingarten - accompanied by Cincinnati Federation of Teachers president Julie Sellers - will hold a press conference in front of the bus at Holy Trinity-St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church at 7000 Winton Road in Finneytown.

The bus will move on to stops in Toledo and Cleveland on Saturday.
