You could call it the battle for Northeast Ohio.
Both presidential campaigns will make stops in this part of the state on the same day -- next Wednesday, the campaigns announced today.
President Barack Obama will visit the city of Kent, while Mitt Romney and his running mate, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, will make a stop in Cleveland that day.
Obama also will make an appearance in Bowling Green Wednesday. Romney and Ryan's Cleveland event will be at the tail end of a two-day bus trip through Ohio that also will include stops in Lima, Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus and Toledo.
The campaigns will release more details of the events later.
The dueling visits underscore the continued importance of Ohio as a battleground state in the Nov. 6 election.
