Barack Obama is expected to hit the campaign trail next week to support his former partner, Joe Biden. CNN reports that the past president will visit key battleground states ahead of November’s election, which could include Florida, North Carolina, Wisconsin and more.

“He’s doing enough for our campaign,” Biden told reporters on Tuesday (Oct. 14). “He’ll be out on the trail and he’s doing well.”

Democrat officials have said Obama will focus his efforts on mobilizing early voters for these last few weeks before Election Day. So far, his finalized schedule has not been announced, but it’s known that his wife — Michelle Obama — is not planning on joining him. Also, a joint appearance by Obama and Biden is expected to happen during the final days of campaigning.

Both Mr. and Mrs. Obama endorsed Biden earlier this year and have used virtual methods to encourage voter registration and early voting. Likewise, the Democratic National Committee released a series of campaign ads this week featuring Obama that urged viewers to make a plan to vote.

Back in August, Obama traveled to Philadelphia to deliver a remote address in support of Biden for the Democratic National Convention. Obama not only spoke highly of his former vice president — saying he admired his “resilience” and “empathy” — but also offered a scathing condemnation of Donald Trump.

“For close to four years now, he’s shown no interest in putting in the work; no interest in finding common ground; no interest in using the awesome power of his office to help anyone but himself and his friends; no interest in treating the presidency as anything but one more reality show that he can use to get the attention he craves,” Obama said during his speech. “Donald Trump hasn’t grown into the job because he can’t.”
