President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney are both planning to vie for veterans' support in Indianapolis.

Romney is scheduled to speak Aug. 29 at the American Legion's national convention in the city. Obama is to deliver remarks by video a day earlier.

Romney's speech will come the day before he is expected to officially accept the Republican nomination during the GOP convention in Tampa.

Obama narrowly won Indiana in 2008 following numerous stops across the state, but he hasn't yet been back during his re-election bid. First Lady Michelle Obama is to attend a campaign fundraiser in Indianapolis Thursday.

Romney stopped in Evansville this month, with his last previous public Indiana appearance being a September speech in Indianapolis.
