Obama makes final campaign visit to Madison

by

MADISON (WSAU)  President Obama is in Wisconsin this morning, as he gets ready for his final campaign appearance in the Badger State before tomorrow’s elections. The Democratic president landed in Madison at 2:40 a-m. He’s scheduled to appear a downtown rally late this morning with a speech and a mini-concert by rock legend Bruce Springsteen.

On Saturday, singer Katy Perry appeared with the president in Milwaukee. And in Cincinnati the same day, Stevie Wonder opened an Obama rally with a rendition of “Keep On Running.”

National media reports say the president has enlisted over 180 musicians, actors, athletes, and popular political figures to hit their own campaign trails on Obama’s behalf. Comedian Danny DeVito and fellow cast members of the F-X cable show “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” canvassed Wisconsin neighborhoods and visited colleges. Actor Laurence Fishburne helped lead a “Souls to the Polls” effort with local churches in Ohio.
