Obama's Wis. visit includes tour of battery comp.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- President Barack Obama's visit to southeast Wisconsin next week will include a tour of ZBB Energy Corp. in Menomonee Falls.

The White House released a statement Thursday saying Obama will deliver remarks to workers there Monday morning. The event will be open to the media but the statement doesn't say whether members of the public will be allowed in.

The president will also travel to Milwaukee, where he's scheduled to headline events for the Wisconsin Democratic Party and for Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, who is running for governor. Details on those events haven't been released.

ZBB Energy Corp. makes batteries and fuel cells that use renewable-energy sources.

The trip will be Obama's fourth to Wisconsin as president. His most recent appearance was a town-hall meeting in Racine in June.
