Presidential Campaigns Revisit Ohio

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will be in battleground Ohio twice over the next five days. The presumptive nominee's campaign has a closed fundraiser set Wednesday night in Cincinnati. And a six-state bus tour that launches Friday in New Hampshire will take him across Ohio on Sunday. A campaign spokesman says the Ohio leg includes an outdoor rally in Newark and a stop at a western Ohio burger restaurant in Troy. The campaign says the tour focuses on small towns and their residents' everyday concerns. President Barack Obama will be back in Ohio on Thursday, at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland. In 2008, Obama carried Ohio, a swing state likely to be pivotal in November.
