The president is headlining a “Get Out the Early Vote” rally in the Cleveland area on Oct. 14, where he “will urge Ohioans to go vote for Clinton and to support her agenda to build an economy that works for everyone,  not just those at the top,” the campaign said in a statement. 
 
Obama is also headlining a dinner for the Ohio Democratic Party the night before. 
 
Obama’s appearance in the Buckeye State will come two days after early voting begins there. 
 
The Clinton campaign is hoping to bank as much support as possible during that period, when minority voters are more likely to cast ballots.
