JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- Mitt Romney is looking to capitalize on a big Republican victory in Wisconsin as he visits the state for the first time since GOP Gov. Scott Walker survived a contentious recall election.
The state hasn't voted for a Republican for president since 1984. But Republicans sense opportunity after Walker challenged public sector unions and survived a Democratic push to oust him as governor.
Romney on Monday plans to visit Janesville, a town hard hit by the economic recession. He is appearing with Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the architect of the House Republicans' budget plan.
Romney is in the middle of a five-day bus tour through six states. He also plans two campaign stops in Iowa.
