Romney and Obama focus on winning Ohio

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Both Romney and Obama campaigns are focused on Ohio to win the Election on November 6, just 52 days away.

Obama is expected to visit Cincinnati's Eden Park Monday around noon, the event opens to the public at 10 a.m.

"I know he will be inspiring and hopefully inspire a lot more people to get out and get other people to vote," said Obama volunteer Louis Rogers.

Rogers spent Friday painting signs for the President's visit. As a retired teacher healthcare is the most important issue for Rogers.

"I don't want to see anybody not have healthcare and it's hard ," said Rogers.

"The costs are increasing all the time so there has to be a way to contain that."

The Romney campaign is betting on Ohio to vote Republican this time around especially Hamilton County.

"We're 28 times ahead of where we were in the 2008 election," said Romney volunteer Sean Sutton.

"We're also doing much more phone calling, many more door knocks, so we're making the effort."

Sutton is part of the Ohio Blitz effort this weekend to make thousands of phone calls and home visits to try and gain support for Romney.
