MADISON, Wis. -

Michelle Obama plans to make two campaign stops in Wisconsin on Friday.

She is slated to appear both in Racine and Wausau.

President Barack Obama's campaign announced the stops and said more details will be coming soon.

Wisconsin continues to be a major focus for both Obama and Republican Mitt Romney. Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan hosted a fundraiser for Senate candidate Tommy Thompson on Sunday and staged a public rally Monday in Waukesha.

Vice President Joe Biden campaigned on Friday in La Crosse.

Wisconsin is one of about nine states both sides are competing aggressively to win in an increasingly shrinking electoral map.
