President Obama wraps up this week’s fundraising tour with a campaign rally in Ohio.

Tomorrow’s trip will be his 15th trip this year and the 4th trip since September 1st. Voter registration ends in Ohio tomorrow.

Campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters on Air Force One “the people in Ohio are looking at who's going to be a better fighter for them in the White House.
