MADISON - A date has been set for President Barack Obama's campaign stop in Milwaukee next week with Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke.
Burke's campaign spokesman Joe Zepecki says that Obama will be with Burke on Tuesday. The president's stop comes as Burke is locked in a tight race against Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
First lady Michelle Obama campaigned twice for Burke in recent weeks. This marks the first time the president has come to the state to campaign for Burke.
On Friday, former President Bill Clinton is scheduled to campaign with Burke, also in Milwaukee.
The latest Marquette University Law School poll released last week showed Walker and Burke are tied. The election is Nov. 4.
