The state Democratic Party says former President Bill Clinton will be in Wisconsin this week to campaign for Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett ahead of next week's recall election.

Democratic spokesman Graeme (GRAM') Zielinski says Clinton will be in Milwaukee sometime Friday morning. He says further details are still being worked out.

Clinton would be the second big-name Democrat to appear in Wisconsin in recent days on Barrett's behalf.

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley chairs the Democratic Governors Association. He'll be in Madison Thursday afternoon.

And on Wednesday, the head of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, rallied about 100 Democratic volunteers in Racine.

A poll released Wednesday by Marquette University Law School shows Gov. Scott Walker with a 7-point lead over Barrett, 52 percent to 45 percent. The poll's margin of error was 4.1 percentage points.
The election is Tuesday.
