Burke’s campaign announced Tuesday that Obama would be appearing with Burke in Madison on Oct. 7. No details were announced.
Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, will campaign in Madison with Burke Wednesday.
Richards and Burke will attend a student leader roundtable at University of Wisconsin – Madison from 3:45-4:45 p.m. in the Red Gym.
