WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WTVR) - President Barack Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney are gearing up for their next debate, which is just days away.

President Obama is in the Commonwealth this weekend. In fact, Obama's campaign said the president is spending several days in Williamsburg preparing for the next debate.

Meantime, Romney spent some of Saturday morning camped out at a hotel in Ohio, preparing with his strategy advisers. His campaign said he will be joined by Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio, who has been aiding Romney by playing Obama in their mock debate sessions.

The candidates will meet Tuesday night at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. The town hall-style debate will be moderated by CNN chief political correspondent Candy Crowley.
