MADISON, Wis. (AP) - President Obama landed in Milwaukee Wednesday where he was greeted by Republican Gov. Scott Walker and Democratic Mayor Tom Barrett.
Walker presented the president with a personalized Brewers jersey after Obama emerged from Air Force One. Obama was also greeted by Congresswoman Gwen Moore and jogged over to a fence line to talk with a couple dozen supporters.
Walker initially planned to accompany Obama to Master Lock in Milwaukee, but later decided to pass. Former Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle was in the crowd at Master Lock.
Obama's visit to Milwaukee is his first to Wisconsin in more than a year. Walker has been attempting to tie his fate in a probable recall election with Obama's chances of winning Wisconsin in November.
