The Obama campaign announced Saturday that Bruce Springsteen will join former President Bill Clinton on the campaign trail in Ohio next week.

“Iowans understand hard work, fairness and integrity, the same values that Bruce Springsteen, the president and vice president stand for,” said Jim Messina, Obama for America’s campaign manager. “Springsteen’s appearances will be valuable in energizing supporters and getting out the vote effort in these important swing states.”

Mr. Springsteen and Mr. Clinton will be in Parma, Ohio, on Thursday, and are set to campaign for the president in Ames, Iowa, later in the day.

Mr. Springsteen campaigned for Sen. John Kerry in 2004 and Mr. Obama in 2008.
