NEW YORK—Mitt Romney is bringing out some well-known names to join him for his bus tour through Ohio Wednesday.

According to his campaign, Romney will hold a rally Wednesday morning in Westerville, Ohio, with golf legend Jack Nicklaus, who is from the area. He'll follow that event in a "manufacturing round table" with Mike Rowe, host of the Discovery Channel show "Dirty Jobs."

It's unclear if Rowe is backing Romney in the race, but the appearance comes just weeks after the television host sent Romney an open letter encouraging him to talk more about skilled labor jobs as part of an effort to change the country's attitude toward "hard work."

"If you read the whole thing, I'll vote for you in November," Rowe wrote.

Romney arrives in Ohio Tuesday afternoon, where he's scheduled to hold a campaign rally in Dayton with his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan.
