NOW: Obama will campaign at Milwaukee high school Friday

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Former President Barack Obama's campaign stop in Wisconsin Friday will be at a Milwaukee high school.

Obama is campaigning for Sen. Tammy Baldwin, gubernatorial candidate Tony Evers and other Democratic candidates on the ballot for the Nov. 6 election.

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin says Obama will appear at North Division High School on Milwaukee's north side Friday afternoon. Tickets are required for the event. They are being handed out on a first come first serve basis Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. at the following locations:

  • 1801 N Dr. Martin Luther King Drive, Unit 10, Milwaukee, WI 53212
  • 5040 W North Ave Milwaukee, WI 53208
  • 725 W Historic Mitchell Street, Milwaukee, WI 53204

Obama's visit follows a rally by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders Monday at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. While Democrats focus their efforts on Milwaukee this week, President Donald Trump returns Wednesday to a more rural part of the state he easily won by double digits in 2016.

Trump will campaign in the central Wisconsin city of Mosinee.
