FILE - In this May 5, 2012 file photo, President Barack Obama arrives to speak at a campaign rally at The Ohio State University,in Columbus, Ohio. In this critical presidential battleground, Republicans hope 2010 is the best predictor of this year’s elections. Democrats hope it’s 2011. No state saw a more sweeping GOP victory in the 2010 midterm elections than Ohio, but that led to a setback when voters rejected an anti-union law a year later. All this forms the backdrop of the race between President Barack Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney in a state with a history of voting for the presidential winner. (AP Photo/Haraz N.
