Watch the Presidential debate Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. on TODAY'S TMJ4.

MADISON - President Barack Obama is soon making another stop in Wisconsin following a debate with his Republican rival.
  
He will be in Madison on Thursday, speaking at the Bascom Mall on the UW campus.  He was in Milwaukee September 22nd.

He's making the appearance the night after the first presidential debate with Republican challenger Mitt Romney at the University of Denver and a campaign event in Denver.
  
After Madison, he's going to Fairfax County, Virginia and Cleveland, Ohio.
  
The last time he was in Madison was Sept. 2010, when he held a rally at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

"He needs to win (Wisconsin), and if he wins (here), he thinks he can prevent Romney from winning," said UWM professor Mordecai Lee.

"I think the signal that the President is coming the day after the debate is an indication that for the next four weeks, we're going to see both of these guys a lot."
  
The campaign did not release other details of the Madison event.
  
First lady Michelle Obama spoke Friday at Lawrence University in Appleton.

Congressman and VP candidate Paul Ryan is hosting a fundraiser at the Pfsiter Hotel this coming Saturday.
