NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio (AP) -- Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will campaign across Ohio by bus this weekend, making eight stops in two days.
Mitt Romney's campaign says the Wisconsin congressman will begin his bus tour Saturday morning in New Philadelphia and Zanesville in eastern Ohio, then head southwest with stops in Circleville, Yellow Springs and Dayton. Sunday's schedule takes him to Celina, Findlay and Marion in western and northern Ohio. Details will be announced later.
The national tickets are focusing heavy time and resources on Ohio, a pivotal battleground state. Romney has three stops Thursday starting in Cincinnati, and President Barack Obama will return to the state Thursday evening in Cleveland.
