Four years ago, then-senator Barack Obama held a rally at the University of Cincinnati on the Sunday before the election, his final stop in Cincinnati before going on to win Ohio and the White House two days later.
This year, Obama - now locked in a tight re-election campaign where Ohio will play a crucial role - will return to the same Sunday for a rally at UC's Fifth Third Arena in what is likely to be his final campaign appearance in the area before Tuesday's election.
President Obama, who suspended personal campaigning this week while he dealt with the aftermath of the storm that devastated large parts of the east coast, will return to the campaign trail Friday in the key battleground state of Ohio, where the polls show him in a dead heat with Mitt Romney.
There is no official word yet from the Obama-Biden campaign on re-scheduling the president's rally that was scheduled for this morning at Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati. That was canceled by the White House Tuesday, but could well be re-scheduled.
The White House just announced that President Obama will remain in Washington, D.C., Wednesday to monitor damage from Hurricane Sandy, causing the cancelation of a planned campaign rally with the president at Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati.
The president had been scheduled to rally supporters at the convention center Wednesday morning. He was also scheduled to do a rally later in the day in Akron. That too has been canceled.
