Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will make Pittsburgh part of his Election Day barnstorming with a stop scheduled near Pittsburgh International Airport.
The campaign said he will continue to Cleveland for a rally afterward.
Details are not complete on the last-minute event, the campaign said.
Romney last visited the area in July with a stop in Irwin; running mate Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin held a rally at Atlantic Aviation two weeks ago in Moon.
Romney held a rally in Bucks County Sunday with the Secret Service estimating the crowd at more than 25,000. Former President Bill Clinton stopped in Market Square on Monday, then continued to Scranton and Philadelphia.
Pennsylvania became a focus in the presidential election as recent polls showed the race tightening to within the margin of error.
