MILWAUKEE- President Obama will address a grassroots campaign event this Saturday at the Summerfest Grounds.
According to a press release, this is a free, ticketed event -- so those wishing to attend must secure a ticket before the event.
Tickets will be available beginning at 5 p.m. Wednesday at Organizing for America offices around Milwaukee.
The doors will open for the event at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
Obama won Wisconsin in 2008 by 14 percentage points, but Republicans have been gaining ground there. Polls in Wisconsin leading up to the Democratic National Convention showed a close race between Obama and rival Mitt Romney.
Obama hasn't been to Wisconsin since February, when he toured a padlock factory. That's long before Romney tapped Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan to be his running mate in August.
Ryan has held three events in his home state since joining the ticket, and Romney visited Wisconsin in August.
Vice President Joe Biden has already visited Wisconsin twice this month.
