Former Gov. Ted Strickland (D-OH) declared Tim Kaine “ready to become president,” should that ever become necessary at an event in Dayton, OH Monday afternoon.
The remarks, captured in a video posted first by NTK Network, are noteworthy because of Hillary Clinton’s medical episode that occurred Sunday at a 9/11 memorial service in Manhattan.
Video of Clinton showed the Democratic nominee nearly collapsing as she relied on Secret Service agents to help her into a van. Hours later, Clinton’s campaign put out a statement saying Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday, two full days earlier.
The entire medical episode has raised questions about Clinton’s health and fitness for office, prompting her campaign to promise new medical records in the coming days.
Strickland’s comments came as he introduced the vice presidential nominee at Stivers High School in Dayton. He trails Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) by a wide margin in most polls.
