Obama campaign boosts Ohio schedule


CINCINNATI (AP) -- President Barack Obama's campaign is going for Ohioans' hearts and ears.

The president will be in Ohio the next four days, on stage at times with big-name musical guests. Stevie Wonder joins him Sunday in Cincinnati, and Obama returns Monday to Columbus with rocker Bruce Springsteen and rapper Jay-Z.

Obama has three Ohio stops Friday and Saturday will be in Mentor.

First Lady Michelle Obama will be at Miami University and Kenyon College Saturday, with Vice President Joe Biden and wife Jill expected Sunday in Ohio.

Republican Mitt Romney and running mate Paul Ryan lead a guest-laden rally Friday evening in the northern Cincinnati suburb of West Chester. They've got music, too: Michigan native rocker Kid Rock will sing for their rally.

Ryan will be at Marietta College on Saturday.
