AKRON, Ohio - With less than a week to go before election day, former President Bill Clinton will stump for President Barack Obama during a rally Thursday evening at the John S. Knight Center in Akron.
Campaign officials said Clinton will "lay out what is at stake in this election for middle-class Ohio families" during the event which starts at 6 p.m.
The rally is free and open to the public, but a ticket is required for entry. Tickets are available online.
Clinton will speak at a rally in Perrysburg, near Toledo, prior to Akron event. He's scheduled to hold a third rally in Chillicothe after the Akron stop.
President Obama was scheduled to to speak at the University of Akron's James A. Rhodes Arena on Wednesday, but that was canceled after the President decided to stay in Washington D.C. and monitor the recovery from Hurricane Sandy.
Obama is making up for lost time in the key battleground state by campaigning Saturday in Mentor and on Sunday at the University of Cincinnati.
In addition, First Lady Michelle Obama will be at Miami University and Kenyon College on Saturday.
Republican challenger Mitt Romney and running mate Paul Ryan will be in the Cincinnati suburb of West Chester on Friday evening.
