Music star John Legend and Tom Perez, chair of the Democratic National Committee, will be in town this afternoon to launch canvassing for congressional candidate Theresa Gasper on the last Sunday before Tuesday’s election.
Springfield native Legend — an Emmy, Oscar, Grammy and Tony award winner — will join Perez to rally for Gasper, the Democratic candidate running against incumbent Mike Turner, R-Dayton, in Ohio’s 10th Congressional District, which includes all of Montgomery and Greene counties and part of Fayette County.
The canvass launch is set for the Dakota Center, 33 Barnett St., in West Dayton. Legend and Perez will greet volunteers and voters and get out the vote for Democrats up and down the ballot, the Gasper campaign said.
