The president kicks off his multi-state swing Saturday, traveling to Mentor, Ohio; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Dubuque, Iowa; and Bristow, Virginia. The following day, he'll visit Concord, New Hampshire; Ft. Lauderdale, Florida; Aurora, Colorado and Cincinnati, 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.
