Obama heading back to battleground Wisconsin

GREEN BAY, Wis. -

President Barack Obama plans another stop in battleground Wisconsin in the heated last days of the campaign.

Obama will campaign in Green Bay on Tuesday, a week before Election Day. The Wisconsin stop is part of a two-day swing that includes visits to other key states Colorado and Ohio. Details will be announced later.

Polls show Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are in a tight race for Wisconsin's 10 electoral votes.

Obama appeared at a rally at the University of Wisconsin-Madison earlier this month. Vice President Joe Biden plans stops Friday in Oshkosh and Kenosha.

GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan plans campaigns stops across Wisconsin next Wednesday before trick-or-treating in Janesville with his three children on Halloween.
