Obama to make final push ahead of Election Day

President Barack Obama will make a final push for Democrats the weekend before Election Day with campaign stops in four cities.

Obama will headline rallies in Bridgeport, Conn., and Chicago, and participate in a canvassing event in Philadelphia on Oct. 30. The next day Obama will head to Cleveland with Vice President Joe Biden for his final rally of the campaign season.

The three rallies will be similar to those Obama has headlined in the weeks leading up to the Nov. 2 midterm election, including one in Columbus, Ohio, last weekend that drew 35,000.

The White House has said the president plans to be in Washington on Nov. 1, the Monday before the election, and on Election Day.

The Democratic National Committee says Michelle Obama will campaign in Las Vegas and Philadelphia on Nov. 1.
