President Obama Campaigns In Green Bay

President Obama is back on the campaign trail after dealing with the devastation of superstorm Sandy for the last several days. His first stop was in Green Bay where thousands of supporters came out to meet him at Austin Straubel Airport.

With election day only 5 days away and Wisconsin expected to play a big role in determining the results, President Obama is making sure he's heard loud and clear across the state.

At a quick campaign stop at Austin Straubel Airport in Green Bay on Thursday, the President emphasized his accomplishments these last four years. But regardless of the progress he's made, the President says the fight continues.

"Our fight goes on because America has always done it's best when everybody get's a fair shot and everybody's doing their fair share and everybody's playing by the rules," President Obama said.

According to the President the only way this can happen is if we focus on what he calls a "middle class agenda," strengthening education and growing jobs here at home. To do that, the President says we have to return to the ideas we know work, such as raising taxes for the wealthy, keeping Medicare as we know it and making healthcare affordable and accessible for everyone.

After his stop in Green Bay, the President went on to campaign in Las Vegas and Colorado. This isn't the last visit from the President before election day. He'll be back in Milwaukee on Saturday. Then on Monday he's making a stop in Madison.
