Pres. Obama's Wisconsin visit comes as Gov. Walker prepares campaign

MADISON -- President Barack Obama brings his push to raise salaries for low-income workers to Wisconsin, the state where Gov. Scott Walker built his expected run for the White House around curtailing collective bargaining powers and enacting a right-to-work law.

The president is scheduled to appear Thursday in La Crosse. Gov. Walker's office has yet to say whether he will greet Pres. Obama in La Crosse for the visit.

Pres. Obama and Gov. Walker clashed back in March when Walker signed the bill making Wisconsin a right-to-work state. And now Obama is coming to Wisconsin after proposing to make up to 5 million more people eligible for overtime in an effort to boost pay for low-income workers.

Gov. Walker has said he will announce his expected presidential campaign the week of July 13.
