During campaign stop with singer Katy Perry in Milwaukee Saturday that drew an estimated 20,000 people, Obama says: "I am here today because there is more work to do."
With just days to go before what will likely be a close election both in Wisconsin and nationally, thousands of people filled the Delta Center in Milwaukee Saturday afternoon to hear President Barack Obama promise to keep fighting for the middle class. As soon as he took the podium before a crowd estimated at 20,000, Obama promised to get help to the victims of Hurricane Sandy and asked those in attendance to pray and donate to the Red Cross, if they were able to do so. His speech then turned to his campaign theme of “Forward." His primary message was about continuing the policies of his administration to provide a voice for the middle class while also growing and supporting a strong middle class.

Sam Ryan brings smiles to the GOP crowd with his goblin mask, while big sister Liza dishes about her Halloween costume and the rifle that her dad bought her for deer hunting.
While most of the family of GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is looking forward to the Nov. 6 election, at least one of his sons has a different date on his mind: Oct. 31. All three young Ryan children joined Ryan’s wife, Janna, in Waukesha Saturday as they campaigned for the Janesville congressman. Their youngest child, 7-year-old Sam, asked if he could bring his Halloween mask with him as he got off the bus at the Republican Party of Waukesha County's headquarters.
