President Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally at Dayton International Airport, Monday, Sept. 21, 2020, at Dayton, Ohio.

President Trump is coming to central Ohio in the home stretch of campaigning before the November 3 election.

Trump plans to speak Saturday at the Pickaway Agricultural and Event Center in Circleville. Doors open at 1 p.m. for the 4 p.m. rally.

The Circleville appearance is one of four Trump events scheduled over the weekend, as the president also plans events in North Carolina, Wisconsin and New Hampshire.

Vice President Mike Pence rallies Friday in Swanton in northwest Ohio after an appearance in Cincinnati on Wednesday.

Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris will be in Cleveland on Saturday. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden rallied last week in Toledo and Cincinnati.

The battle for Ohio's 18 electoral votes has heated up after polls indicated Democratic nominee Joe Biden was well within range of Trump. Trump in 2016 won by 8 percentage points in the state no Republican has reached the White House without carrying.
