President Obama to launch bus tour

In a sign that President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign is entering a new phase of more direct voter outreach, the president will hit the road in his first bus tour of the general election campaign.

A campaign official confirmed Wednesday the president will take part in a two-day bus trip next week, beginning July 5, in western Pennsylvania and northern Ohio.

The campaign will start to include a wider variety of public events with the aim to give the president more exposure to voters.

The Obama campaign announcement comes the same day as a new Quinnipiac University survey indicates Obama with a slight edge over Romney in the two states on the bus tour. In Pennsylvania, Obama leads Romney 45%-39%, and in Ohio, the Democratic incumbent is ahead 47%-38%, according to the poll.
