Visit aims to stir support

        As her husband, Democratic vice presidential candidate Joseph Lieberman, prepared to face his Republican counterpart in tonight's debate, Hadassah Lieberman took to the campaign trail with a stop in Cincinnati.

        “We're going to have to work hard to get to (undecided voters),” she said Wednesday. “If they go back and review the record, Lieberman and Gore listen and really know the issues ... They have their feet on the ground.”

        In town for a private fund-raising event hosted by attorney Stan Chesley at his Amberley Village home, Mrs. Lieberman took about 20 minutes to tour the Children's Museum of Cincinnati in Union Terminal.

        Earlier in the day she had toured a pediatric health care facility in Springfield and engaged in a roundtable discussion with medical professionals about the Gore-Lieberman plan to expand children's access to health care.

        Asked why she had opted to come to Cincinnati before her husband's debate in Danville, Ky., she said simply: “Ohio is an important place. It's a battleground state.”

        Her appearance was one of several bids by both parties to capitalize on Tuesday night's debate between presidential contenders Vice President Al Gore and Texas Gov. George W. Bush, both of whom also had stops Wednesday in Ohio.

        Mrs. Lieberman favored Mr. Gore as the winner of Tuesday's face-off. “I'm biased of course,” she said.
