Obama hits Milwaukee Wednesday: Turbulent political times in Wisconsin

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--President Barack Obama returns to battleground Wisconsin on Wednesday, hitting Milwaukee during a turbulent time in Wisconsin--and a recall in play for the GOP governor, Scott Walker. Craig Gilbert, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Washington Bureau Chief previews the Obama visit in his "The Wisconsin Voter" blog.

Gilbert excerpt
: "President Obama's trip to Milwaukee on Wednesday is his first to Wisconsin since the labor wars erupted a year ago, and comes at a time when the state has more wild cards in its political deck than perhaps any other presidential battleground. ...

...Walker will join Obama at Master Lock Wednesday, two incumbents of different parties with a common interest in a brightening jobs picture."
