Hillary Clinton wound up her Ohio campaign last night in Belpre, a small city of 7,000 on the Ohio, West Virginia border. See exclusive photos.

In contrast to Barack Obama’s recent large gathering of over 11,000 at the Nutter Center, Hillary Clinton has chosen smaller venues in the final weeks of her Ohio campaign. Locally she held a rally Wayne High School in Huber Heights and at various other high schools in Ohio. Yesterday, she made one of her final campaign stops at the high school in Belpre, a small city of 7,000 located on the Ohio, West Virginia border. The mayor of the town, Mike Lorentz, said this is one of the biggest things to ever happen in the town’s history.

From here, Hillary Clinton will hold one more event in Ohio then spend some time in Texas and return to Ohio for a final tour across the state before the March 4 Primarys. Former President Bill Clinton will continue to campaign for Hillary in Ohio, his next stop at Stebbins High School in Riverside Thursday, February 28 at 9:00 pm.
