Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett might get a boost from having a high-profile guest in the form of former President Bill Clinton visit Milwaukee on Friday.
**Updated 8 am, June 1
Could Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett get a boost from a Friday visit from former President Bill Clinton? At the very least, having Clinton stump for Barrett probably can't hurt.
Numbers from the most recent poll out of Marquette University Law School put Barrett seven points behind Gov. Scott Walker, 45 to 52 percent.
The No Quarter Blog at jsonline.com is reporting that Clinton will speak at a Barrett event at 10 am in Pere Marquette Park in downtown Milwaukee.
According to the blog post, former Rep. Dave Obey was the primary force urging Clinton to make an appearance supporting Barrett's run for governor against Walker in the June 5 recall election.
