Campaign touting the auto bailout

When Vice President Joe Biden hits the campaign trail in the pivotal swing state of Ohio this week, he will likely focus on one of the Obama administration’s successes – the bailout of the auto industry.

Biden gives the first in a series of four high profile speeches at a United Auto Workers union hall in Toledo on Thursday.

A Democratic campaign official tells CNN the speeches are designed "to begin framing the core issues of the general election."

The auto industry in Ohio, a critical swing state in the upcoming presidential election, is key to the state’s economy.
