The pace of campaign visits to Ohio has been busy. There has been heavy TV advertising across the swing state, with more than three months left before the general election.
The president made a two-day bus tour across northern Ohio in early July, followed by a July 16 rally in Cincinnati. His wife, Michelle, campaigned earlier this week in Columbus and Dayton.
Republican challenger Mitt Romney was in Toledo and Bowling Green in mid-July, after making a three-city bus tour in mid-June.
