Obama & Romney Return to Wisconsin as Campaign Resumes
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/31/2012
The new key phrase in the political world is: 'Wisconsin is the new Ohio.' And residents of the Badger State will likely feel that way in the coming days as the presidential candidates begin criss-crossing the area looking to secure voter support. Both President Barack Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney had
cancelled campaign appearances in Wisconsin in the days leading up to Hurricane Sandy. But now that the storm has leveled off, campaign officials have been busy rebooking political rallies.
The President's campaign says he will be in Green Bay on Thursday morning at Austin Straubel International Airport, with Vice President Joe Biden scheduled to campaign in Beloit and Superior on Friday. Former President Bill Clinton will also be in Eau Claire later today.
Romney returns to Wisconsin on Friday, where he will deliver a message at State Fair Park near Milwaukee. His running mate, Janesville-native Paul Ryan, is spending much of his time today in Wisconsin. He will be making campaign stops in Eau Claire, Green Bay and Racine before heading home to
trick-or-treat with his children later tonight.
The polls are showing both Romney and President Obama neck-and-neck in Wisconsin. And with just less than a week to go before election day, local residents can probably expect a few more opportunities to see each of the candidates before Tuesday.
