MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - President Obama will return to Wisconsin next month. He’ll be in Milwaukee on August 16th for a speech on the economy, and to help raise money for Tom Barrett’s candidacy for governor.
White House officials had urged the Milwaukee mayor to run, after several other Democrats shied away in the months after Jim Doyle said he would step down.
Obama will be making his 4th trip to Wisconsin as president. He appeared in Green Bay and Madison last year – and he held a town hall meeting on the economy in Racine on June 30th.
