Springsteen, Jay-Z to boost Obama on final day

Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Some big-name celebrities will help President Barack Obama make his closing case to voters in the most competitive states.

Rock singer Bruce Springsteen will perform and introduce Obama on Monday as he kicks off the last day of the campaign in Madison, Wis. The two will then travel together to Columbus, Ohio, for another event with rapper Jay-Z.

First lady Michelle Obama will meet up with the president, Springsteen and Jay-Z later Monday in Des Moines, Iowa, for Obama's last event of the campaign. It's a nod to the state that put Obama on his path to the White House when he won the Iowa caucuses in 2008.

Obama's campaign says he will return home Monday night to Chicago, where Obama will be on Election Day.
