Republican Mitt Romney is expected in Lebanon Saturday for a rally. No details have been announced yet; stay tuned for details.
Hoping to capitalize on his performance in the first debate, Romney has practically been living in Ohio as he hopes to win the state considered the national prize in this election.
Aside from Thursday, the day of the vice presidential debate, Romney or running mate Paul Ryan are campaigning in Ohio every day this week.
Ryan began the week with a speech in Swanton.
Both President Barack Obama and Romney rallied supporters Tuesday in Ohio.
Romney continues his campaign today, in Mount Vernon, Delaware, and Sidney; Friday he and Ryan campaigned in Lancaster. Saturday Romney hits Portsmouth and Lebanon, while Ryan hits Bowling Green.
Lebanon – and in particular the porch of the Golden Lamb – have been popular campaign spots for Republicans in the past. It’s owned by the Portman family – the one that produced Sen. Rob Portman of Terrace Park.
As former political reporter Howard Wilkinson noted on places with presidential pasts:
The Golden Lamb: The grand-daddy of all Southwest Ohio presidential sites. Ohio’s oldest inn and restaurant, sitting on South Broadway in downtown Lebanon, has seen no fewer than 12 presidents walk through its doors over the past two centuries – John Quincy Adams, Martin Van Buren, William Henry Harrison, Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James Garfield, Benjamin Harrison, William McKinley, William Howard Taft, Warren G. Harding, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. John McCain and Sarah Palin campaigned there in 2008.
