President Obama touches down in Milwaukee

President Barack Obama arrived at Wisconsin's 128th Air Refueling Wing around 4 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

He has two primary campaign stops. One at the downtown restaurant Umami Moto and then a rally with Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Mary Burke at North Division High School.

Mordecai Lee, UW Milwaukee's Political Science Professor says this isn't your \"run of the mill\" Governor's race.

Lee says you can compare it to a game of chess with both parties are thinking ahead to the Presidential race. After all, many political observers believe Walker is a possible GOP Presidential candidate.

\"You've got politicians who want to prevent him from being a candidate for President,\" Lee said. \"So, this would be the place to stop him.\"

Professor Lee says conventional wisdom dictates that the party that controls governor ships does well for president.
