(Washington) -- President Obama will try to rev up Democrats in Pennsylvania and Ohio as the number of states that could swing to either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump narrows to just a handful.

Obama is slated to speak in Pittsburgh at 3:30 p.m. at the "White House Frontiers Conference.''

Aides say he'll announce new funding for technology and research and tout innovations like self-driving cars and artificial intelligence.

The president then heads to Columbus today to speak at an annual dinner benefiting Ohio Democrats and Governor Ted Strickland.

Tomorrow, he'll hold a rally in Cleveland for Clinton, emphasizing early voting. 

This week Obama entered the final 100 days of his presidency. He's increasingly devoting his time to trying to push Clinton over the finish line in the presidential race.
