CINCINNATI (AP) - After two campaign appearances on Saturday, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney plans to spend a few days in New England preparing for three debates planned in October with President Barack Obama.
A Romney spokesman says the campaign currently has no public events planned for the most competitive states during the Democratic National Convention that starts Tuesday. He says Romney will be sequestered with Ohio Sen. Rob Portman preparing for the debates.
Obama campaigned in three battleground states last week during Romney's Republican National Convention.
Romney's running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan, will campaign in Greenville, N.C., on Monday. Other Romney allies also will make appearances on his behalf.
