Ed O'Neill Endorses Joe Schiavoni For Governor by Joe Schiavoni for Ohio

He is an underdog in the Democratic primary election that takes place May 8.

The core of the "Modern Family" star's pitch is:

"I was born and raised in Youngstown and I think Joe Schiavoni will represent all the people of Ohio. He'll fight for the families, he'll fight for better jobs and a better future like he's been doing for years."

He closes the 30-second spot with:

"So I'm not telling you how to vote. But I am going to ask you to consider Joe for governor because I don't think you'll be disappointed."
