McCain, Lance Armstrong to visit Ohio


COLUMBUS, Ohio John McCain plans a visit to Ohio Thursday for a town hall meeting on cancer hosted by cycling great Lance Armstrong.

McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, will talk about his plan to address cancer and take questions from audience members.

The event is part of a four-day summit on cancer held by the Lance Armstrong Foundation at Ohio State University s James Cancer Hospital.

The summit will train about 1,000 attendees, many of them cancer survivors, to raise money and awareness about cancer.

This will be McCain s eighth trip to Ohio since becoming his party s probable nominee.

Democrat Barack Obama was also invited but declined because of his weeklong overseas trip.
