President Donald Trump is in Ohio where he toured a hospital Friday with wife Melania and will address state Republicans.
The couple visited the neonatal intensive care unit at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, to learn about treatment for babies affected by the opioid epidemic.
Trump was then peeling off to attend a fundraiser for Rep. Jim Renacci (reh-NAY'-see), who's challenging Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown this fall.
The president is also headlining the Ohio Republican Party's state dinner before returning to Washington.
Trump last visited Ohio on Aug. 4 to rally for U.S. House candidate Troy Balderson, a GOP state senator.
Balderson was certified Friday as the winner of a special election to fill the unexpired term of a longtime Republican congressman.
