One state that has been able to find success when it comes to employment is Ohio, a key battle-ground state in the race between Republican nominee Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama. The Associated Press reports that both candidates will be making stops in the state this week, with the most recent polls showing Obama ahead.
speech in Vandalia on Tuesday, Romney said that the economy under Obama had fallen short of expectations.
"If this president persists on the road of making it harder and harder for small businesses to grow and thrive, he's going to slowly but surely weaken our economy and turn us into Greece," Romney told a crowd of supporters, according to the AP. "That is not the America that built Ohio!"
