Morning update: what’s brewing for Friday, Nov. 2

There are four days until the presidential election — and Wisconsin remains a popular stop for both presidential campaigns.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will campaign in West Allis this morning, just outside Milwaukee at the State Fair Park. Today’s visit is Romney’s first to Wisconsin since August, following his announcement of Janesville Congressman Paul Ryan as the party’s vice presidential nominee.

Former senator Russ Feingold and Milwaukee County Superintendent John Weishan Jr. will hold a press conference outside the Romney event.

Vice President Joe Biden is in Wisconsin today, visiting middle schools in Superior and Beloit. Biden’s visit is sandwiched between two Badger State campaign stops by President Barack Obama, who was in Green Bay yesterday.

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Thompson is kicking off a “victory tour” of the state before Tuesday. Today, he’ll be at businesses in Madison and Onalaska. Thompson also is speaking at this morning’s Romney rally.

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin will campaign at a Racine business this afternoon.

Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan‘s family is touring the state today. Ryan’s mother, Betty Douglas, sister, Janet Ryan, and sister-in-law, Oakleigh Ryan, will visit Green Bay and Fond du Lac on a “Women for Mitt” tour.

Obama returns to Wisconsin tomorrow for a rally in Milwaukee, accompanied by pop star Katy Perry. On Monday, Obama begins his final day on the campaign trail with a rally in Madison, accompanied by Bruce Springsteen.
