Presidential candidates focus on Wisconsin

The eyes of the nation will be on Wisconsin this week, as presidential contenders make a final push for votes here.

President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney will both be in the Badger State this week. Romney will appear in West Allis tonight at the Wisconsin Products Pavilion, the first time he’s been in the state since August. President Obama will make a stop Tuesday night in Green Bay at the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena.

Also this week, GOP Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan will return to his home state on Wednesday for campaign events. The Wisconsin Congressman will also go trick-or-treating in Janesville with his children on Halloween night.

The blitz of campaign visits comes as polls show an extremely close race for Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes. Election Day is just over a week away, on November 6th.
