Democratic candidate for governor Mary Burke will be getting some help on the campaign trail from the White House.
Burke’s campaign announced Monday that First Lady Michelle Obama will come to Wisconsin on September 29th to take part in a grassroots campaign event. The event will be in Milwaukee, although a specific location or time have not yet been announced.
Burke met privately with President Obama during a stop in Milwaukee on Labor Day, although did not appear on stage with him. The First Lady’s visit comes on the same day that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie plans to be in the state to campaign for Burke’s opponent, incumbent Republican Governor Scott Walker.
