President's Last Stop in Wisconsin

By Heather Burke. CREATED Nov 5, 2012

MADISON--President Obama made three stops in Wisconsin over the last five days. He's making an all-out effort to win the state, and he's trying to do that with some big celebrities by his side.

Bruce Springsteen serenaded the crowd. All part of the President's mission in Madison, energize his base one last time.

"Are you fired up?!" the President asked a crowd of thousands near the State Capitol.

He listed what he calls his accomplishments from the last four years.

"In 2008 we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Today our businesses have created five and a half million new jobs," President Obama said.

But he says the job is not finished yet.

"As long has there's families working harder and harder, but still falling behind, we got more work to do," President Obama said.

The President hopes his final push is enough to win Wisconsin's 10 electoral votes.

"Wisconsin that's why I need your vote. And if you're willing to work with me again, and knock on some doors with me, make some phone calls for me, turn out for me, we'll win Wisconsin. We'll win this election. We'll finish what we've started," President Obama told the crowd.

The President also campaigned with pop-star Katy Perry in Milwaukee over the weekend. While Vice President Joe Biden rallied the base with John Mellancamp in Richmond, Virginia.
