SHARE Obama hits Milwaukee Wednesday: Turbulent political times in Wisconsin

WASHINGTON–President Barack Obama returns to battleground Wisconsin on Wednesday, hitting Milwaukee during a turbulent time in Wisconsin–and a recall in play for the GOP governor, Scott Walker. Craig Gilbert, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Washington Bureau Chief previews the Obama visit in his “The Wisconsin Voter” blog.

Gilbert excerpt: “President Obama’s trip to Milwaukee on Wednesday is his first to Wisconsin since the labor wars erupted a year ago, and comes at a time when the state has more wild cards in its political deck than perhaps any other presidential battleground. …

…Walker will join Obama at Master Lock Wednesday, two incumbents of different parties with a common interest in a brightening jobs picture.”
