Obama rallies crowd in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) — President Barack Obama was back in the Miami Valley Friday afternoon.

Appearing at a campaign rally in Springfield, he talked-up the latest jobs report, which showed a spike in hiring, but said "we've got more work to do."

That government employment report released this morning shows U.S. employers added 171,000 jobs in October.

With just four days before the election, both Obama and Romney are working hard to own the Ohio vote. 
Obama was in the Columbus suburb of Hilliard earlier in the day.

Romney will be campaigning in West Chester this evening.

2 News had a crew at the Obama event and will have a crew in West Chester, and will have complete coverage of both rallies on 2 NEWS starting at 5:00, and of course online at WDTN.com .
