Correction: Democrats' 1st Ohio governor debate highlights party agenda


MARTINS FERRY, Ohio (AP) — In a story Sept. 12 about a debate among Democratic candidates for Ohio governor, The Associated Press erroneously described an Ohio campaign involving collective bargaining rights. The effort sought successfully to turn back, not to back, a law restricting such rights for public sector employees.

A corrected version of the story is below:
