Team Obama sets schedule for final weekend of race
While President Barack Obama returns to the campaign trail on Thursday, he'll continue to push full speed ahead until Election Day.
His campaign announced Wednesday he'll pass through seven battleground states in the weekend blitz before voters head to the polls on November 6.
The president kicks off his multi-state swing Saturday, traveling to Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa and Virginia. The following day, he'll visit New Hampshire, Florida, Colorado and, again, Ohio.
Before he sets off on the weekend tour, Obama will give remarks at three events in Ohio on Friday and travel to Wisconsin, Nevada and Colorado on Thursday.
As CNN reported earlier, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will also be darting across the country this weekend. Starting Friday, the candidate, his running mate, their wives, and nearly 100 surrogates will fan out across eleven battleground states in a four-day swing.
The states include Colorado, Ohio, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
