He is scheduled to campaign in Tampa and Orlando, located along the Interstate 4 corridor, a region key to both candidates' strategies for winning the state. New York Senator Hillary Clinton is expected to campaign with Obama in Orlando.

The most recent CNN Poll of Polls for the state showed Obama leading Republican presidential nominee John McCain by three points, 49 percent to 46 percent. The polls were conducted October 4 through October 15.

McCain plans to visit Missouri, making stops in St. Charles, Columbia and Belton.

A recent CNN/Time/Opinion Research Corporation poll showed McCain with a one-point advantage in the state. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points, which renders McCain's lead statistically insignificant. The poll was conducted October 11 through October 14.
