Obama tours battleground states; Romney gets help on campaign trail

President Obama will wrap up his two-day bus tour through Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Both states represent crucial battleground territory this November. He stopped in Parma, Ohio Thursday.

That's the largest suburb in Cleveland.During his visit, the president hit on the issue of tax cuts for the wealthy.

Recent national polling numbers show President Obama has a slight lead over Mitt Romney.

Romney is taking some time off the campaign trail, but he's getting a helping hand. Former presidential contender Tim Pawlenty and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal are running their own shadow tour.

They're following the same route as the president. Pawlenty said Obama should be focusing on broken promises.

Political analysts say these states will likely see more than their share of campaign events as the November election inches closer.
