WASHINGTON -- Mitt Romney will hold his first joint rally with House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Sunday, the Dayton Business Journal reported.

Romney and Boehner will team up for a rally in Troy, Ohio, which is just outside of Dayton. They will also grab hamburgers together at K's Hamburger Shop in town. The burger joint has a history of political visits: Rick Santorum stopped by ahead of Ohio's presidential primary earlier this year, and Dan Quayle stopped by for a burger when he was vice president, the paper reports.

Ohio remains a key battleground state in the 2012 presidential election. President Barack Obama has visited 21 times since becoming president, and Romney will make a three-town trip through the state on Sunday.

In related news, Obama and Romney will be giving dueling speeches in Ohio next Wednesday. Obama is slated to give remarks at a community college in Cleveland, while Romney will speak at a manufacturing company in Cincinnati.
