WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- President Barack Obama will return to Wisconsin next week.
The President is expected to hold a fundraiser and roundtable discussion on Saturday, September 22 at the Milwaukee Theater.
Obama was last in Wisconsin in February, when he toured Master Lock, a factory in Milwaukee.
Obama won Wisconsin in 2008 by 14 percentage points, but Republicans have been gaining ground there. Polls in Wisconsin leading up to the Democratic National Convention showed a close race between Obama and rival Mitt Romney.
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- President Obama is scheduled to make a stop in Wisconsin on September 22. This would be Obama's first trip to the state since February.
An invitation shows the President will be at the Milwaukee Theater to hold a fundraiser and roundtable discussion. To attend the general reception, donors must give a minimum of $250. In order to take part in a photo reception and VIP reception, people must contribute $5,000 to Obama campaign fund. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports it costs $25,000 to attend the roundtable with the President.
A spokesman for the Romney campaign is criticizing Obama for coming to Wisconsin just to raise campaign money. The Obama Campaign told the Associated Press they had no comment.
