Anticipation builds for Wednesday campaign events

All of the tickets for the Barack Obama campaign rally in Bowling Green have been given out. The doors to the Stroh Center will open tomorrow morning at 10:30 a.m. The President is due to speak at 1 p.m. This will be Mr. Obama's second trip to Northwest Ohio this month. On Labor Day the President spoke at Scott High School.

The Republican Party's presidential nominee Mitt Romney will speak to supporters at the Seagate Center in downtown Toledo. Romney supporters were filing in and out of the Lucas County GOP headquarters snapping up the last few remaining tickets to the rally. The doors to the Seagate Center open at 3 p.m. Mr. Romney is expected to speak to the crowd at 5 p.m.

Toledo resident Vincent Lamarr Smith says the dual campaign events is evidence of Ohio's election clout. "Ohio is a swing state and has a lot of power throughout the nation in terms of the general election," Mr. Smith said.
