President Obama is heading back to the battleground state of Ohio this morning. His eighth trip to the buckeye state this year. The battle for the state's 18 electoral votes will be an expensive one. According to Campaign Media Analysis Group, which tracks political ad spending on broadcast TV and national cable more than $22 million has been spent by the campaigns and in the independent groups to put up ads in Ohio since the start of the general election campaign in early April.
When Obama returns to the White House he will head back out to the Verizon Center to watch a bit of basketball. Team USA, men and women , will play exhibition games tonight against Brazil as they prep for the upcoming London Olympics.
