President Barack Obama will make his 25th visit since taking office and his third in less than a month to the critical battleground of Ohio on Wednesday.

The Democratic president is expected to bring his middle-class economic message to struggling Mansfield and Akron.

The visit is part of a tour that will also stop in Florida and Virginia, also key swing states in the crosshairs of both candidates.

Mr. Obama visited Cincinnati last week to contrast his vision for the national economy, taxes, and affordable college education with that of Mr. Romney.

Mr. Romney was in Toledo, Bowling Green, and Canton two days later. He is currently on an Olympics and foreign policy tour of Europe and Israel.

Vice President Joe Biden and first lady Michelle Obama were both in the state within days of Mr. Romney’s visit.

Specific details on Mr. Obama’s visit were not immediately available.
