Washington (CNN) – Last week, President Obama stopped in Columbus, Ohio for a town-hall style meeting with a few dozen residents of Columbus. On Monday, Ohio residents will get another shot to see an Obama administration official. This time: Vice President Joe Biden.
Biden is scheduled to travel to both Indiana and Ohio on Monday. In Indiana, he will deliver remarks addressing the troop drawdown in Iraq at the 111th annual Veterans of Foreign Wars convention in Indianapolis before continuing on to Toledo, Ohio where he will stop at a Chrysler plant.
In Ohio, Gov. Ted Strickland, Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown and Rep. Marcy Kaptur, all Democrats, will join Biden.
The Obama administration has paid special attention to Ohio, a crucial swing state, since the president took office. Last week's trip was Obama's ninth to Ohio since taking office.
The Vice President is expected to emphasize the role of the administration’s investments in GM and Chrysler as well as Cash for Clunkers and the Recovery Act, and will make the case that the administration's actions have not only strengthened the auto industry, but have stimulated economic activity and job growth across the country.
