HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — President Barack Obama's campaign says Vice President Joe Biden's scheduled trip to southwest Ohio next week to talk about the president's jobs plan has been postponed.
The campaign issued a statement Friday saying the event scheduled for Monday in Hamilton has been postponed due to scheduling changes, and no new date has been set. The campaign had said Biden was expected to talk about keeping teachers and emergency responders on the job.
The visit had been meant to help mark one year since opponents of an Ohio bill limiting collective bargaining rights delivered 1.3 million signatures to get a referendum on the ballot. Educators, firefighters and police were among the union workers who successfully campaigned to turn back the measure, known as Senate Bill 5.
