After the final presidential debate, President Barack Obama and GOP rival Mitt Romney return to the campaign trail on Tuesday.

Romney will leave Florida on Tuesday after staying overnight in Boca Raton, traveling to Nevada and Colorado, the Boston Globe reported.

Meanwhile, the president will spend time in Florida's Delray Beach before heading to Dayton in the key swing state of Ohio.

As GlobalPost reported, Obama's large lead in the state has been shrinking. The latest polls show him with just a five point lead over Romney, instead of the ten point advantage he saw just last month.

On Wednesday, Obama continues a fast past tour of swing state cities that will take him to Davenport, Iowa; Las Vegas, Nevada; Denver, Colorado and then onto California where he will appear on the “Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.

Romney will have a similar schedule on Wednesday, also speaking in Nevada before heading to Ohio on Thursday, the Globe wrote.

But one thing Romney won't have on the campaign trail is help from the Boss.

Bruce Springsteen will be campaigning for the president in Virginia on Tuesday, as he did recently in Ohio.
