Republican VP candidate travels to eastern Ohio on Saturday

BELMONT, Ohio (AP) — Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan’s latest Ohio campaign stop will take him to eastern Ohio.

The Mitt Romney campaign says the Wisconsin congressman will lead a rally Saturday at Valley View Campgrounds in Belmont. That’s near West Virginia, in a region of Ohio where the Romney campaign thinks it can swing voters its way because of concerns about the economy and the future of the coal industry under President Barack Obama.

Former president Bill Clinton was campaigned this afternoon for Obama in eastern Ohio, in Wintersville.

Saturday will be the fifth day in a little more than a week in which Ryan has campaigned in Ohio. Democratic Vice President Joe Biden will return to the swing state early next week, at places yet to be announced.
