ASHWAUBENON, Wis.- "Wisconsin, we know our work's not done yet."

With that, President Barack Obama gave his pitch for four more years as President at a campaign event near Green Bay on Thursday.

"When disaster strikes, we see America at its best," said the President during his speech.

He made a call for his supporters to push hard and get out the vote for him in a county in Wisconsin that has traditionally been a "swing" county in Presidential elections, and has often been a key piece of winning Wisconsin's electoral votes.

"If you're willing to work with me again and knock on some doors with me, make some phone calls for me, and turn out for me, we'll win Brown County again.  We'll win Wisconsin again.  We'll win this election."

The Obama campaign claimed that 2,600 people appeared at the event.

Among the many signs at the event in a state known for its culture of beer-making, one person held up a "Four More Beers" placard.

Democratic Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin, former Senator Russ Feingold and Packers safety Charles Woodson joined the President at his appearance at Austin Straubel Field.

He will also be campaigning in Milwaukee on Saturday as part of a multistate swing before Tuesday's election.

His campaign announced the stop on Wednesday. Obama will speak at the Delta Convention Center. Pop star Katy Perry will perform at the event.

Mr. Obama also will speak in Madison at a campaign event the day before Election Day.

The three stops come as a Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday shows Obama leading Republican Mitt Romney 51 percent to 43 percent in Wisconsin.

The poll of 1,243 likely voters was done between Oct. 25 and Sunday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.

Romney plans to campaign near Milwaukee on Friday.

Both running mates, Paul Ryan and Joe Biden, are also campaigning in Wisconsin this week.
