Romney plans Northeast Ohio stop Friday

PAINESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is campaigning in Ohio again.

Romney’s campaign says he’ll speak at a rally Friday afternoon at Lake Erie College in Painesville, east of Cleveland.

It’s the second visit to the battleground state this week for Romney, who spoke in Mansfield on Monday. He and President Barack Obama, his Democratic opponent, have made multiple visits to Ohio in recent weeks — underscoring the state’s importance in the November election.

Romney’s northeastern Ohio stop follows campaign visits in the state this week by his running mate Paul Ryan and Vice President Joe Biden. Obama plans stops in Columbus and Cincinnati on Monday.
