Springsteen to campaign for Pres. Obama in Ohio
WASHINGTON - October 13, 2012 (WPVI) -- Bruce Springsteen is hitting the campaign trail on President Barack Obama's behalf.
The musician will join former President Bill Clinton at a rally in Parma, Ohio, on Tuesday, the day of the second presidential debate. Obama will not attend the rally.
Springsteen campaigned for Obama in 2008, but this is his first political appearance of the 2012 cycle. Clinton has become an increasingly prominent surrogate for Obama, campaigning for the president in several battleground states.
Clinton and Springsteen's joint appearance in Ohio underscores the importance of the key swing state. Polls show Obama with a slight lead there over Mitt Romney, but the Republican presidential candidate is spending an increasing amount of time and resources in the state ahead of Election Day.
