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.
Ann Romney campaigned for her husband today in the battleground state of Ohio with her first stop at a Hamilton business. Ohio Lt. Governor Mary Taylor and Cindy McCain were on hand.

Hoxworth Blood Center is putting out the call for blood and platelet donors.
Spokeswoman Alecia Lipton says area blood supplies are at a fragile level.
"Some of that is due to a very low donor turn out. We can blame part of that on cold and flu symptoms going around but also (Tuesday), due to the weather, we had some folks who were no-shows for their appointments," she says.
Lipton says all blood types are needed and platelet donors are especially important.
