McCain's first Ohio visit since Obama clinched nomination

CINCINNATI (AP) - Republican John McCain is in Ohio for two days of town-hall events followed by fundraisers for his presidential campaign.

His appearances in Cincinnati and the Youngstown area are part of McCain's first trip to Ohio since Barack Obama locked up enough delegates to become the apparent Democratic nominee.

Through May, Obama donors gave more than double the roughly 120 million dollars raised by McCain's campaign, so the Republican is trying to catch up in the money chase. Tickets to McCain's Cincinnati fundraiser today start at $2,300.

While in northeast Ohio tomorrow, the GOP candidate will tour the General Motors Lordstown plant. Union leaders there have already put out a statement calling McCain out of touch with working people.
