Obama To Talk Jobs In Ohio On 2-Day Bus Tour

CINCINNATI (AP) - Democrat Barack Obama is heading off on a two-day Ohio bus trip that his campaign calls the "American Jobs Tour."

The presidential hopeful will be in some areas hard hit by job losses, starting this morning in Dayton, then going on to Cincinnati and into southern Appalachian Ohio.

Ohio unemployment is at a 16-year high, and looming are the losses of thousands more jobs in southwest Ohio, at an air park near Wilmington and a General Motors SUV assembly plant near Dayton.

Obama says he can save and add jobs with road, bridge and other infrastructure projects and by investing in renewable energy, while giving the middle class tax relief.
