For the fourth installment of our look back at state government in 2012, Ohio Public Radioâ€™s Bill Cohen takes a look at how presidential candidates criss-crossed the state in search of votes.
Ohio’s 18 electors gathered at the Statehouse Monday to cast their official votes for president and vice president.
President Obama hosts an afternoon rally inside Nationwide Arena alongside musicians Jay-Z and Bruce Springsteen, while Mitt Romney has an evening rally at a business near Port Columbus.
President Barack Obama covered a lot of political ground at a rally in Hilliard. And just days before the election, the president was able to energize a crowd of 2,800 people by telling them why they can trust him for four more years.
First it was Jeep/Chrysler saying a Mitt Romney ad airing in Ohio was misleading. Now General Motors is criticizing an ad they say misleads voters into thinking GM is moving jobs overseas.
President Barack Obama is resuming his storm-delayed chase to win Ohio with help from former President Bill Clinton, while Republicans are putting together a huge rally for Friday evening.
The Republican presidential candidate’s campaign is defending the comment about Jeep moving production to China, despite the Chrysler CEO restating that Jeep has no plans to move Toledo auto jobs overseas.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is going ahead with a planned stop in the Dayton area, but the focus will be on helping victims of storms that swept through Ohio late Monday and early Tuesday.
Ohio has seen what seems like a never-ending stream of campaign visits. Just last week, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were together in Dayton, Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan rallied in North Canton, and all four candidates stumped separately throughout the state. Communities say the costs of protecting those candidates are adding up.
