UPDATED: Bill Clinton Speaking at UW-Waukesha Thursday

Wisconsin's getting high-profile political stops, including President Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Vice President Joe Biden and Paul Ryan.

Updated at 4:10 p.m. Wednesday to include information about venue and time for Clinton; and information about Obama in Milwaukee

Former President Bill Clinton will be campaign in Waukesha Thursday on behalf of President Barack Obama, who is making a stop in Milwaukee on Saturday.

Doors open to Clinton’s event at UW-Waukesha’s Field House at 9:15 a.m. Thursday. The news release from Obama for America does not specifically state when the program begins.

The event is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required for entry.

Clinton isn’t the only big-name coming to Wisconsin. As a swing state, it’s being eyed as a crucial battleground for Republicans and Democrats.

Mitt Romney, whose plans to be in West Allis Monday were canceled because of Hurricane Sandy, will appear at the State Fair, 640 S. 84th St., on Friday. Doors open at 7:30 a.m. and the program begins at 9:30 a.m. The event is free and open to the public, however, advance registration is required.

All attendees will go through airport-like security and should bring as few personal items as possible. No bags, sharp objects, umbrellas, liquids, or signs will be allowed in the venue. Cameras are permitted. 


Days before the election, Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan will visit Racine on Wednesday.

Billed as a victory rally from the Romney-Ryan campaign, Ryan is slated to visit Memorial Hall at 2:15 p.m. with a mix of state and national GOP names.

Tickets are free, but registration is required by visiting the campaign's website.


Obama announced that he would campaign in Green Bay on Thursday morning. Free tickets are available on the campaign's website. Obama canceled his visit that was scheduled for Tuesday because of Hurricane Sandy.


Vice President Joe Biden returns for stops in Beloit and Superior on Friday. Biden was in Wisconsin last week for stops at UW-Oshkosh and UW-Parkside in Kenosha.


Late Wednesday, the Obama campaign announced that the president will make a stop in Milwaukee to speak at what's being described as a "grassroots event." No details on that visit were available.
