Rahm Emanuel talks Obama role in auto bailout

Posted: Updated:

With only nine days left until election day, President Obama's former Chief of Staff and current Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel stopped in Toledo to get out the vote for his former boss.

He touted the President's role in the auto bailout and said it created jobs in the Glass City.

"Mitt Romney said let the auto industry go bankrupt and President Obama said not on my watch. And the living consequences of that is the ability that more and more people are now getting more jobs in the auto industry. Ohio is a direct beneficiary, and the Jeep plant here is adding a third shift in the coming months and that's a direct result of two different views. President Obama was right, and Mitt Romney was wrong."
