President to campaign in Wisconsin for Burke

Madison, (AP) - President Barack Obama plans to campaign with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke in Milwaukee just before the election.

A White House official says the Wisconsin stop will be one of seven the president will be making in the final days to help Democratic gubernatorial candidates. The exact date of the visit was not announced, other than it would be in the final full week of the campaign.

A spokesman for Burke did not immediately return a message Wednesday. First lady Michelle Obama has campaigned twice for Burke in the past two weeks, once in Madison and once in Milwaukee.
Burke's challenging of Republican Gov. Scott Walker is one of the tightest governor's races in the country.
