    Vice President Joe Biden plans stops Friday in Oshkosh and Kenosha.

    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.

    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.
