President Barack Obama keeps returning to Ohio. Since early June, when he kicked off his campaign at the Schottenstein Center on Ohio State’s campus, the president has visited the state five times and made 13 campaign appearances.

But, tomorrow’s visit will be the President’s first to Mansfield and Bowling Green State University political scientist Melissa Miller says its a little surprising the President will visit an area that voted solidly republican four years ago.
