(NBC) -- It wouldn't be a presidential campaign without a good, old-fashioned bus tour, Romney's tour starts today in New Hampshire and will hit six key states.

In battleground Ohio Thursday, Romney said President Obama has simply spent too much taxpayer money.

"He has put together almost as much public debt as all the prior Presidents combined. You want four more years of THAT?! You call that forward? That's forward over a cliff," said Mitt Romney, (R) Presidential Candidate.

Last night, President Obama raked in big bucks at two star-studded fundraisers in New York.

Earlier, he was in Ohio, hammering Romney for pushing a five-trillion dollar tax break for the wealthiest Americans. "The only tax breaks and deductions that get you anywhere close to $5 trillion are those that help middle-class families afford health care and college and retirement and homeownership," said President Barack Obama.

Later that day, the President made a surprise visit to a Boys and Girls club in the swing state, "The President is pushing that the election is a direct choice between two people with starkly different views of where the country should go," said Alexander Burns of Politico.

And look for the ad wars this weekend.

President Obama has a new one slamming Romney for his work at Bain Capital, and Romney's new ad hits the President on his biggest weak spot - the economy.
