LIMA -- Mitt Romney's campaign says the Republican presidential candidate and running mate Paul Ryan will campaign across Ohio by bus next week.
The campaign says Ryan will begin in Lima (LY'-muh) on Monday and then join Romney in Cincinnati on Tuesday. Romney will then head to Dayton that day, and on Wednesday Romney will campaign in Columbus, Cleveland and Toledo while Ryan is elsewhere.
The campaign isn't yet saying exactly where the candidates will be stopping or what they'll do during those visits.
Romney is planning a more aggressive schedule of traditional campaign events in battleground states like Ohio.
The state is considered likely to be crucial to Romney's chances of unseating President Barack Obama. No Republican has ever taken the White House without winning Ohio.
