Presidential race focuses on Wisconsin


MADISON (WKOW) -- The presidential race has put Wisconsin front and center in the final week of campaigning.

Wednesday, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan hit the trick-or-treat trail in his hometown of Janesville. "This is the route I did as a kid," Ryan said while touring the neighborhood with his wife and three kids.

But celebrating Halloween wasn't the only reason Congressman Ryan made his way to Wisconsin, he made several campaign stops earlier in the day. Eau Claire, Green Bay and Racine were all on the schedule. "We owe you solutions grounded and founded in those timeless founding principles; liberty, freedom, free enterprise, self-determination, the government works for us and not the other way around," Ryan told a crowd of 1,200 in Eau Claire.

Former President Bill Clinton also stopped in Eau Claire Wednesday. "Say a prayer that your country will find the wisdom to operate like there is no crisis, like we all do when there is by electing Barack Obama," Clinton said at the rally.

Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Vice President Joe Biden will make campaign stops in Wisconsin Friday, just one day after President Obama in Green Bay. Thursday morning, thousands of people are expected to descend upon Austin Straubel Airport bright and early to hear the president speak. President Obama will also campaign in Milwaukee Saturday with pop star Katy Perry.
