Presidential candidates focus on Ohio


As the 2012 presidential race enters its final days, the campaign managers for President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have both announced plans to send candidates back to the Tri-State for rallies this week.

President Obama is planning a campaign event in Cincinnati on Wednesday morning.

The president is scheduled to address supporters at the Duke Energy Convention Center before he heads to Akron. Doors open at 8:00 a.m. and the event is set to begin at 10:20 a.m.

The President plans to highlight his second-term agenda and encourage Ohioans to vote early.

Tickets for the event are free but must be claimed in advance. You can sign up now online at the Obama Campaign Website and have your ticket sent to you by email.

If you'd rather pick up your ticket in person, you can do so at the following locations:

Duke Energy Convention Center

525 Elm Street

Cincinnati, OH 45202

OFA-Ohio Forest Park Field Office

1240 West Kemper Road

Cincinnati, OH 45240

Any remaining tickets will be distributed at the same locations Monday, Oct. 29, starting at 10 a.m.

Meanwhile, presidential candidate Mitt Romney and vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan are scheduled to appear in West Chester Township on Friday, just four days before the election.

Romney, his wife, Ann, and Paul Ryan will head to The Square at Union Centre at 9285 Centre Point Drive for the event, which will mark Romney's first appearance in Butler County during the campaign.

Doors are scheduled to open at 4:30 p.m. with the program starting at 7:30 p.m. Ryan has previously appeared in Oxford, where he was a student at Miami University.

Candidates for both parties have blanketed Ohio with appearances to win what is seen as a key swing state, which went to President Obama in 2008.
