Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” will travel to Ohio this fall on a pre-election road trip that hopes to answer the question: What’s a buckeye?

“Battlefield Ohio: The Daily Show’s Midwest Midterm Midtacular” will air nightly from Oct. 30 through Nov. 2, a week before the Nov. 7 national election. The shows will be taped at Ohio State University’s Roy Bowen Theatre.

In addition to in-studio interviews and appearances by politicians and newsmakers, “Midwest Midterm Midtacular” will feature political commentary from “Daily Show” correspondents Dan Bakkedahl, Samantha Bee, Jason Jones and John Oliver from various locations in and around Ohio.

Their commentary will “give viewers a unique perspective that only a true outsider can provide,” Comedy Central said in a statement this week.

It will be the fifth time “The Daily Show” has made a road trip as part of its “Indecision” election coverage. The show has also traveled to Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Washington and Boston.
