Obama campaign boosts Ohio schedule

CINCINNATI - President Barack Obama's campaign is making up for lost time in the battleground state of Ohio.

The Democratic president will campaign Saturday in Mentor and on Sunday at the University of Cincinnati, after three rallies across the state on Friday.

First Lady Michelle Obama will be at Miami University and Kenyon College in Ohio on Saturday. The campaign said Vice President Joe Biden and wife Jill will be in Ohio on Sunday, with details to be announced later.

Obama had canceled scheduled Ohio events including a Cincinnati rally earlier in the week while he monitored government response to superstorm Sandy along the East Coast.

Republican challenger Mitt Romney and running mate Paul Ryan will lead a huge, GOP guest-laden rally Friday evening in the northern Cincinnati suburb of West Chester.
