CINCINNATI (AP) - Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan plan campaign stops in hotly contested Ohio early this week.



Romney's presidential campaign says Ryan is kicking off a "Romney Plan For a Stronger Middle Class" bus tour of the state with a town hall rally in Lima Monday afternoon. Ryan will then speak at another town hall meeting in Cincinnati Tuesday morning, before Romney and Ryan appear together for a rally at the Dayton International Airport Tuesday afternoon.

President Barack Obama's next Ohio visit will take him to the college towns of Bowling Green and Kent Wednesday.
