MANSFIELD, Ohio - Republican Mitt Romney is coming back to Ohio, and so are running mate Paul Ryan and Democratic Vice President Joe Biden.
Romney plans to meet with factory workers Monday afternoon in northern Ohio at a plant in Mansfield.
Meanwhile, the Barack Obama campaign says Biden will return Wednesday for a campaign visit to Wright State University in Dayton, in southwest Ohio. Biden spent the past weekend campaigning across eastern and southern Ohio.
The Romney campaign also has Ryan scheduled back in southern Ohio on Wednesday evening, at the Clermont County fairgrounds. Country singer John Michael Montgomery will perform.
Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman has been helping Romney hone his debate skills. Portman has been playing the role of President Obama in the mock debates during breaks from campaigning.
