Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will hold another rally in New Hampshire on the eve of the election.

President Obama will be in the state the same day – campaigning for Hillary Clinton – but details of his visit are not public yet.

Trump is scheduled to appear at a rally at Southern New Hampshire University Arena in Manchester at 8 p.m. on Monday. Trump’s New Hampshire campaign spokesman, Cory Custer, confirmed the candidate will be attending.

SNHU Arena – formerly known as the Verizon Wireless Arena – is the same spot where the billionaire businessman held a massive rally on the night of the New Hampshire primary in February.

New Hampshire gave Trump his first primary victory. He has campaigned in the state repeatedly during the general election.

On Monday, Obama will campaign for Clinton in a “Get Out The Vote” event and encourage voters to elect Democrats up and down the ticket.

While New Hampshire is considered a battleground state, it only has four electoral votes in play, a relatively small number compared to other contested states like Florida and Pennsylvania.

The latest polling analysis from Real Clear Politics shows Clinton with nearly a five-point lead over Trump in New Hampshire.
