WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama is returning to Ohio to give his first commencement address of 2013 at Ohio State University in Columbus.

Ohio was at the center of last year's presidential election, and Obama's victory there was critical to winning enough electoral votes to secure a second term. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden traveled frequently to the Buckeye State throughout the campaign.

Ohio State says more than 10,000 students will receive diplomas Sunday, including 130 veterans.

Obama is scheduled to give two other commencement speeches later this month – at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., and Morehouse College in Atlanta.

Obama returned to the White House on Saturday after a three-day trip to Mexico and Costa Rica.
