DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — President Barack Obama is returning to Iowa, where he will kick off a two-day campaign blitz across seven battleground states.

A news release from the Obama campaign says the president will be in Davenport on Wednesday, two days after his third debate with Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Later Wednesday, Obama will travel to Denver, then to Las Vegas. On Thursday, he will travel to Tampa, Fla., and Richmond, Va., before flying to Chicago to cast his ballot early. The president will end the two-day tour with an event in Cleveland.

Obama's campaign says it will release more details about the events later.
