WEST ALLIS - The Presidential candidates can almost call Wisconsin home.

In the last week alone President Obama, Vice Presiden Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan have all been here.

Friday, Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney campaigned in Wisconsin with a rally in West Allis.

It was one of the wildest receptions Romney has seen in quite a while.

Governor Romney talked about the jobs report released Friday. Employers added 171,000 jobs last month, but the unemployment rate ticked up from 7.8 percent to 7.9 percent.

Romney says that's unacceptable.

"He said he was going to focus on creating jobs, instead he focused on Obamacare which killed jobs," Romney said. "He said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half, instead he doubled it. He said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to five point two percent right now, today we learned that it's actually 7.9 percent and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised."

Romney's next stop was another key battleground state: Ohio.
