COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — President Barack Obama will campaign next week in central Ohio.

His campaign says events are planned Tuesday in the Columbus area. Details will be announced later.

The pace of campaign visits to Ohio has been busy.

Republican challenger Mitt Romney held rallies this week in coal-rich eastern Ohio, in Zanesville and in Chillicothe, south of Columbus. And his running mate Paul Ryan had a two-day campaign swing through the state that featured a rally on the campus of his alma mater, Miami University.

The president also had stops earlier this month in Mansfield and Akron.
