Four Days Out: Ohio A "Must Win" For McCain?

John McCain heads into the final weekend of the presidential campaign looking at Ohio as a must-win state.

With both presidential candidates focused tightly on the economy, the Republican plans to spend his second straight day rumbling across Ohio by bus.

He'll tell voters he feels their economic pain in an effort to lay claim to Ohio's 20 electoral votes. Aides say the campaign believes he probably has to win Ohio to be elected, and they didn't rule out returning to the state before Tuesday.

McCain also plans to fly to Virginia over the weekend. That's usually friendly country for the GOP but is another place where polls give Barack Obama the edge. McCain aides said the Arizona senator was likely to swing West. A recent poll from McCain's home state showed the two candidates in a statistical dead heat.
