JANESVILLE -- The last time he visited Wisconsin, Mitt Romney was just one of several Republicans with eyes set on the White House. Now he's the man who will challenge President Barack Obama in November and Romney is making a quick stop in Wisconsin, again.

The former Massachusetts governor made an appearance at the Monterey Mills Plant, a textile company, in Janesville. The main topic of his speech was jobs and getting Americans back to work.

His stop is part of a five day bus tour around six battleground states.

Gov. Scott Walker, Congressman Paul Ryan, and Senator Ron Johnson were all present during Romney's appearance that comes almost two weeks after the state's historic recall election.

Walker sent out a tweet on Friday that said he was looking forward to joining Romney in Janesville, Monday, but reminded voters that his win in the recall election does not mean the state will vote Republican in the November presidential election.

Monterey Mills CEO Dan Sinykin joked with Romney about announcing Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate at the event in his hometown of Janesville.

A new poll shows Romney leading the president in Wisconsin 47 to 44-percent. This is the first time Romney has led Obama in the polls in the traditionally Democratic state.
