Erin McPike spotlights the Obama campaign's early efforts in swing states like Ohio:
Since the president launched his re-election bid last April, his Ohio team has conducted 5,000 volunteer-led events, including house parties, phone-banking efforts and neighborhood canvassing. These events have now reached more than 650,000 Ohio voters, whether via phone, the front door or even one-on-one meetings, according to the campaign. The team is opening its 10th office — in Youngstown — on Thursday and plans to open several dozen more over the next few months.
