VP Biden, Florida Sen. Rubio to campaign in Wisconsin

Obama, Romney campaigns have been hitting Wis. hard

Vice President Joe Biden is set to visit Wisconsin again this week.

President Barack Obama’s campaign announced Tuesday Biden will speak at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh on Friday morning and at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside in Kenosha a few hours later.

Both Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney’s campaigns see Wisconsin as one of nine states still in play ahead of the Nov. 6 election. Both sides have been hitting the state hard.

Obama appeared at a Madison rally earlier this month and Biden’s visits on Friday mark the fifth time the vice president has stopped in Wisconsin this year. Romney’s running mate, Paul Ryan, also has made a number of appearances in the state to campaign and spend time with his family in Janesville.

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio will be campaigning in Wisconsin to help get out the vote for Romney.

Romney’s campaign announced Tuesday that Rubio will host a rally in Republican-heavy Waukesha on Thursday.

The event comes as early in-person voting started in Wisconsin on Monday. It runs through Nov. 2.
