The parade of presidential candidates to YSU started in August with…Robby Wells.
Wells, former head football coach at Savannah State University in Georgia, visited Kilcawley Center for a rally and town hall meeting.
Ohio, and Youngstown in particular, could once again be a hotbed of activity during the primary and general elections for president. In 2008, candidates Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John McCain held rallies at YSU. Also visiting were several celebrities as part of Rock the Vote. Beeghly Center played host to Good Morning America.
Wells, who lives in Charlotte, N.C., ran for president as an Independent in 2012 and announced in September 2013 that he is seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2016.
