Wednesday in politics: Obama campaigns in Ohio, and more

President Barack Obama heads to the battleground state of Ohio on Wednesday for campaign stops in Mansfield and Akron. He is expected to focus on his middle-class tax proposal.

A new Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News poll out Wednesday shows Obama leading Mitt Romney in Ohio and in Florida and Pennsylvania. Obama won all three states in 2008.

Romney, just back from his three-country overseas tour, is spending Wednesday in private meetings at his campaign's Boston headquarters. Could a running mate be on the agenda?

The Federal Reserve will announce Wednesday what action it is prepared to take to stimulate the sluggish economy, but economists do not expect aggressive measures at this point, the Associated Press reports.

Also worth noting on Wednesday: First lady Michelle Obama will attend campaign events in North Carolina.

And then there is this: Wednesday marks one year since the House voted to raise the $14.3 trillion federal debt limit and impose sweeping spending cuts. The Senate passed the bill the next day, and it was signed by President Obama.
