resident Obama and Mitt Romney will both be in Ohio all day Wednesday, trying to pick up votes in the crucial, battleground state. It's the first time in about two months that the two have been on the same turf. Obama will stop at Bowling Green State University and Kent State University, while his opponent will host a business roundtable in Bedford Heights before heading to Toledo. A new Washington Post poll shows Obama with an 8-point lead against Romney. No GOP candidate has ever won the White House without carrying the Buckeye State.
