Washington (CNN) - With the presidential debate two days away, the Obama campaign is poised to prebut arguments Mitt Romney will likely make and fact check Romney's claims after the debate.
On Monday the campaign revealed it will dispatch 11 Massachusetts officials, who served with then Gov. Mitt Romney, across nine battleground states during the week.

The states they will travel to are: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Among the elected officials from the state are: Newton Mayor Setti Warren and Rep. Ronald Mariano, the majority leader of the Massachusetts House of Representatives.
"They are in a unique position to tell voters across the country about Romney's record of failed leadership and failed policies in Massachusetts, which included slashing funding for education and job training while raising taxes and fees on middle class families and small businesses," Obama for America Deputy National Press Secretary Adam Fetcher said in a statement.
CNN reached out to the Romney campaign to see if it would also send teams of surrogates into battleground states during debate week but did not receive a response.
The tactic is part of an effort by the Obama campaign to be a noticeable voice in the pre and post debate chatter. Among the voices to be heard: Vice President Joe Biden's. Just after the debate, he will attempt to be among the first to react as he speaks with Obama supporters attending over 3,200 debate watch parties across the country.
