MILWAUKEE — The
White House says President Barack Obama will travel to Milwaukee
on Monday to speak at a Labor Day event. It gave no specifics
about the event.
A spokesman for
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke said she will attend
Laborfest on Monday. Spokesman Joe Zepecki had no other details
about whether Obama and Burke would share the stage.
governor's race is one of the most watched in the country, as Gov.
Scott Walker seeks a second term after surviving a recall
election. Walker, who rose to national prominence after
effectively ending collective bargaining for most public workers,
is also eyeing a run for president in 2016.
Two months from
the election, polls show Burke in a dead heat with Walker.
