GOP VP Candidate, First Lady Campaigning in Ohio

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan and First Lady Michelle Obama will be reaching out to Ohio voters in campaign appearances.

Ryan has an airport rally in Cincinnati at noon Monday. The first lady will make stops later in Cleveland and near Columbus in Delaware.

Ryan's rally will mean the Republican ticket has been in Ohio six of the last eight days, after he and Mitt Romney campaigned in different Ohio cities Saturday.

Democratic President Barack Obama returns Wednesday at Ohio University in Athens, while former President Bill Clinton and music star Bruce Springsteen will campaign Thursday for Obama in Parma.

The Obama campaign also is running a new state TV ad featuring space hero and former Ohio Sen. John Glenn. Glenn did a radio spot for Obama last month.
