Ivanka Trump will be joined at the rally by U.S. Senator Rob Portman of Ohio.

"I'm excited to be back in the Buckeye State to discuss how President Trump has delivered for hard-working Ohioans. My father has renegotiated unfair trade deals, advocated for school choice, fought against the scourge of human trafficking, increased access to affordable child care and cut taxes for hard working families," Ivanka Trump said in a release. "The people of Ohio have a fighter in President Trump, and he will continue to fight for them for four more years." 

The trip to Youngstown by Ivanka Trump comes as both campaigns continue to make frequent stops in Ohio. According to a Quinnipiac poll released on Thursday, former Vice President Joe Biden holds a five-point lead over President Trump in the Buckeye State. The same poll also shows Biden with a lead in the battleground state of Pennsylvania as well. 

Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris made a stop in Cleveland on Saturday, while her husband Doug Emhoff held a drive-up event in Akron on Thursday. Vice President Mike Pence has visited Ohio several times in the last month.
