AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will return to Iowa on Friday as he and President Barack Obama scramble for votes in battleground states as the election nears.
Romney's campaign says he will speak at noon Friday at Kinzler Construction Services in Ames.
The Ames stop will come two days after Romney holds an event Wednesday in Cedar Rapids.
Obama also is spending plenty of time in Iowa, with an event Wednesday in Davenport. Last week, Obama held a rally at Cornell College in Mount Vernon.
