(CNN) - With the next presidential debate just days away - on Tuesday - Republican nominee Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama are taking some time this weekend to prepare.
Romney spent some of Saturday morning camped out at a hotel in Ohio, preparing with his strategy advisers. His campaign said he will be joined by Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio, who has been aiding Romney by playing Obama in their mock debate sessions.

Reporters traveling with the candidate saw Romney walk into the hotel wearing a blue shirt and jeans.
He will hold two rallies in Ohio on Saturday afternoon.
Obama, meanwhile, will travel on Saturday to Williamsburg, Virginia - like Ohio, a battleground state - where he is expected to prepare for the debate.
He set up shop with his advisers at the Kingsmill Resort, which a campaign official described as a beautiful, quiet facility where Obama can still handle his governing responsibilities outside of the distractions of being at the White House.
Obama has gathered with the same ddebate preparations team which worked with him ahead of the October 3 presidential debate, with the addition of a foreign policy adviser, as this debate covers both domestic and foreign policy matters.
The candidates will meet Tuesday night at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. The town hall-style debate will be moderated by CNN chief political correspondent Candy Crowley.
A CNN/ORC International poll of people who watched the first presidential debate, on October 3, said Romney won that face-off, 67% to 25%. The survey has a sampling error of plus or minus 4.5 points.
