COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Democratic Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is urging college students in Ohio to vote for a Democratic gubernatorial candidate criticized by President Donald Trump.

Warren headlined rallies Thursday at Ohio State University in Columbus and at Ohio University in Athens to stump for Richard Cordray. She called him effective, incorruptible and “the nerd we need.”

Trump has called Cordray a “far-left disciple” of Warren, a potential 2020 presidential contender whom Trump frequently targets for mockery. Cordray led the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that Warren promoted.

Cordray told supporters in an email that a Trump tweet Tuesday was “a vile smear” of his record with “a nasty slur about Elizabeth Warren that’s beneath the dignity of the office of President.”

Cordray faces Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine in a tight race.
