Richard Schiff, Bradley Whitford, Dulé Hill, Joshua Malina and Mary McCormack and Dayton's very own Allison Janney (AKA Toby, Josh, Charlie, Will, Kate and C.J.) will canvass Dayton for Democratic Presidential hopeful  Hillary Clinton.  

The cast is campaigning for Clinton throughout the state, stopping in the Mahoning Valley, Cleveland, Sandusky and Toledo areas on Saturday and Sunday in Dayton and Columbus.

The local event starts at 9:45 a.m. at Clinton’s headquarters at 34 E. First St., Dayton.
