Obama's Wisconsin visit comes as Walker prepares campaignSubmitted: 06/30/2015
MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker will greet President Barack Obama when he comes to La Crosse on Thursday to talk about the economy.


Walker spokeswoman Laurel Patrick said Tuesday that Walker would meet the president.

The visit comes at an awkward time for Walker, as he prepares to launch an expected run for the White House in a couple weeks.

Obama is coming to tout his newly released proposal to raise salaries for low-income workers.

Walker and Obama clashed in March after Walker signed a bill making Wisconsin a right-to-work state.
