COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Hillary Clinton campaigned on the campus of The Ohio State University in Columbus Monday, urging students to register to vote before Tuesday’s deadline.

Citing the Secret Service, the campaign says about 18,500 people attended the outdoor event on campus.

Clinton hit Donald Trump with the allegation that he uses Chinese steel in his construction projects.

She is raising the charge while campaigning in Ohio, a rust belt state hit by the downturn of the American manufacturing and fierce competition from overseas.

Clinton said “for his talk of putting America first” Trump doesn’t support American industry with his products and projects. She says “that kills jobs right in this state.”
