Romney, Obama both plan Saturday stop in Dubuque

Comment on this story

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) - An aide says President Barack Obama will return to Iowa at least once more before Tuesday's election.

A campaign aide who spoke on condition of anonymity because the event hasn't been announced says Obama will hold a rally Saturday in Dubuque. The official says no time or location has been finalized.

Obama's visit marks a final push for Iowa's six electoral votes in his tight race for the presidency against Republican challenger Mitt Romney. The visit will also get attention across the border in western Wisconsin, which is also considered a battleground state.

The Dubuque Herald on Wednesday afternoon also was reporting that Romney will hold a rally around midday at the Dubuque Regional Airport.

Both candidates have made earlier trips to Dubuque during the campaign.
