CINCINNATI (AP) — Ohio Sen. Rob Portman will be in Colorado to offer counterpoints during President Obama's visit there, and will accompany Mitt Romney on a three-city Ohio trip next week.
The Romney campaign says details of next Tuesday's bus tour will be announced later, but at least one stop will be in Portman's home area of southern Ohio. Romney will tour three other swing states before coming to Ohio.
Details also will be announced later on Portman's visit Wednesday to Colorado for the Romney campaign. Portman is believed to be among the top contenders for Romney's running mate choice. Romney's campaign has said his decision could come any day.
The president is scheduled to be in four Colorado cities over two days beginning Wednesday. Like Ohio, Colorado is a highly contested state.
