The presidential campaign is pressing into the heat of summer just as the government issues new jobless numbers that will define the state of the economy and the political contest four months from Election Day.

President Barack Obama continues a bus tour of Ohio and Pennsylvania, hotly contested states, eager to leverage their modest economic successes into a case for his re-election.
