Ohio just moved its presidential primary back from March until May. So what is Mitt Romney doing Wednesday in the Buckeye State? The former Massachusetts governor is again off the traditional early state circuit of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, instead planting his flag in a state with 19 electoral votes that he'll see much more of next year if he becomes the Republican nominee. To coincide with his trip, the Romney campaign released a new online video featuring Steve Cohen, an Ohio business owner who says President Obama is "not helping our company expand" and creating an environment not conducive to job creation.
