OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is continuing his two-day campaign trip to Iowa with stops in Ottumwa and Grinnell.

Biden will speak Tuesday morning at the Bridge View Center in Ottumwa, then hold an afternoon event at Grinnell College.

On Monday, Biden spoke in Burlington, calling for Iowans to help re-elect Democratic President Barack Obama.

Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan also was in Iowa on Monday. He spoke at an event in downtown Des Moines.

The stops continue a string of visits to Iowa by the presidential and vice presidential candidates.

Iowa is one of about six battleground states that likely will decide whether Obama or Republican challenger Mitt Romney wins the Nov. 6 presidential election.
