White House Press Secretary
(R) Presidential Candidate
--LEAD IN --
The race for the White House heads to Ohio today.
Both candidates are making a trip to the Buckeye State.
As Tory Dunnan explains, the focus will be on the economy.
--REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS --
BOTH PRESIDENT OBAMA AND MITT ROMNEY ARE IN THE CRITICAL BATTLEGROUND STATE OF OHIO.
THEY WILL BE ON OPPOSITE ENDS - THE PRESIDENT WILL BE IN CLEVELAND, ROMNEY IN CINCINATTI.
TWO DIFFERENT CITIES BUT THE FOCUS WILL BE THE SAME - THE ECONOMY.
AS IS OFTEN THE CASE - THE PRESIDENT WILL SPEAK ON TURNING THE ECONOMY AROUND WHILE CONTRASTING HIMSELF AND MITT ROMNEY.
This election is a fundamental choice between two very different visions for how we grow the economy /// The President's plan is to pay down our deficit in a balanced way, a way supported by the majority of the American people while still investing in education, energy, innovation and infrastructure
MITT ROMNEY WILL SPEAK AT A FACTORY IN CINCINNATI - ABOUT JOBS.
A SENIOR CAMPAIGN ADVISOR SAYS ROMNEY WILL ALSO TALK ABOUT WHAT THE FIRST 100 DAYS OF HIS ADMINISTRATION WILL LOOK LIKE.
IN WHAT APPEARED TO BE A PRE-BUTTAL TO OBAMA'S SPEECH - ON WEDNESDAY, ROMNEY WENT ON THE ATTACK.
He will speak eloquently, but the words are cheap /// 12:01:00 We will see what he says, but his policies have been anti-business, anti-jobs
--REPORTER ON CAM TAG --
OHIO IS GETTING A LOT OF ATTENTION FROM BOTH SIDES.
THIS VISIT WILL BE THE PRESIDENT'S 6TH TO THE STATE SO FAR THIS YEAR.
AND IN ADDITION TO HIS VISIT TO CINCINATTI, ROMNEY WILL MAKE THREE STOPS IN OHIO DURING A MULTI-STATE BUS TOUR KICKING OFF ON FRIDAY.
IN WASHINGTON I'M TORY DUNNAN, BACK TO YOU.
