President Obama will deliver a series of speeches in key swing states — including a stop in his hometown of Chicago — the weekend before Election Day.
The president will attend "Get out the vote" rallies in Philadelphia, Bridgeport, Conn., and Chicago on Oct. 30, and cap off his swing with another speech in Cleveland on Oct. 31.
The Democratic National Committee hasn't decided when or where Democrats would hold the rally, but the previous rallies the president has attended over the past month have been held at large sporting venues or open spaces that can accommodate tens of thousands of attendees.
The events are meant to boost turnout for Democratic candidates in the closing days before the election.
"As we see the tide turning in our direction, the president, participating in these events and laying out the choice voters face on November 2, will be vital to improving our chances for success on Election Day," said DNC Chairman Tim KaineTimothy (Tim) Michael KaineObama gives fiery speech for McAuliffe: 'Don't sit this one out' Biden injects new momentum into filibuster fight Democratic frustration with Sinema rises MORE.
