WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama and Bill Clinton will campaign together next week in three of the most competitive battleground states.
Obama and the former president will hold rallies Monday in Orlando, Youngstown, Ohio and Prince William County, Virginia. Their appearances will kick off the final full week of campaigning before Election Day.
While Clinton has been an active supporter of the president, Obama's campaign is ramping up his role in the election's waning days. Clinton is featured in a new campaign advertisement out this week, where he argues that Obama's "got it right" with his economic agenda.
Monday's stops will be the first joint rallies the two presidents have held together during the 2012 campaign. They have previously attended joint fundraisers and appeared together briefly at the Democratic Party's convention.
