One Ohio politician’s family is getting involved in this year’s election campaign.

Roger Strickland, Governor Ted Strickland’s brother traveled to Zanesville Tuesday afternoon to stop by the Democratic Headquarters to drop off yard signs.

"I think it’s important to see the people, that’s what important in Ohio, is the people and you have to show that you’re interested in them, or they’re not going to support you," said Roger Strickland.

Strickland says that he firmly supports his brother and knows his motives are pure.

"He’s probably the most compassionate person I’ve ever met, and he thinks about people. He doesn’t think about money, if he did, he wouldn’t be in the business that he’s in," he said. 

Strickland also traveled to Coschocton and Mount Gilead on Tuesday.
