CINCINNATI (AP) â€” The presidential campaign is going back to school in Ohio, stepping up competition for college voters in the swing state.
Democratic President Barack Obama heads Wednesday to Ohio University in Athens, while Mitt Romney's GOP running mate Paul Ryan has a rally earlier at Baldwin Wallace University near Cleveland.
Ohio University will be the fifth Ohio college Obama has visited in less than a month. Romney and Ryan also have recently visited several Ohio campuses.
Exit polling in 2008 indicated Obama won two-thirds of the vote among college-age adults as he carried Ohio. Obama officially kicked off his re-election campaign in May at Ohio State University.
Ryan is a Wisconsin congressman who went to Miami University in Ohio. That was one of his first stops as Romney's vice presidential pick.
