MADISON (WKOW) -- Even though President Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney were off the campaign trail Saturday, bus tours supporting the candidates toured the state.
The "Heartland Bus Tour" stopped in Wisconsin to thank Obama volunteers. State Senator Jon Erpenbach (D-Middleton) says about 30 people went door to door canvassing for the president Saturday.
"The response has been really good. I mean, obviously the closer you get to the election, the more engaged people are becoming. But again, it's a matter of knocking on every single door for example on the East Side of Madison today," Erpenbach says.
Meanwhile, a pro-Romney bus tour stopped for a rally in Janesville. The "Rebuild American - Defeat Obama" bus tour is expected to hit 28 states before the election.
"We're just one of many organizations out there so if people just want to support everything like I said, they need to make phone calls, come to the rallies, get the enthusiasm up and definitely go to the polls," said rally coordinator LuAn Francis.
President Obama leads Romney in every poll of Wisconsin voters taken in September.
