CINCINNATI (AP) — A group of Roman Catholic nuns is kicking off a 1,000-mile bus tour of Ohio to urge political leaders to focus on the state's most vulnerable residents.

The so-called "Nuns on the Bus" tour will start in Cincinnati Wednesday morning and travel throughout the state for five days.

The nuns plan to visit Catholic-sponsored social service agencies that they say would be harmed by federal budget cuts.

They're calling on Democrats and Republicans to approve a budget that "affirms the life of all God's children — not just the wealthiest few."

Their stops will include Dayton, Lima, Toledo, Cleveland and Columbus.

Some of the same nuns in the group went on a nine-state tour over the summer that focused on the needs of low-income and vulnerable Americans.
