Obama campaign to target Wisconsin
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democrats want to cause a stir -- or at least stay in the conversation -- while the spotlight is on Republicans next week at the GOP convention in Tampa, Florida.
President Barack Obama and his campaign are seeking to counter Mitt Romney's message and try head off any dramatic climb for the Republican challenger in post-convention polls.
Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will campaign in four battleground states. And Obama's campaign will hold events around the country aimed at women voters. The campaign also plans an economic-themed bus tour through Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin with party activists.
In Tampa, Democrats plan daily events with party officials and middle-class Americans to counter the Republican ticket. The activity will lead into the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., beginning Sept. 4.
