Vice president to be in Milwaukee for fundraiser

MADISON (AP) -

Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to be in Milwaukee on Thursday for a lunchtime fundraiser.

The appearance at the Italian Conference Center in Milwaukee is organized by the Obama Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee authorized by Obama for America and the Democratic National Committee.

Tickets begin at $250.

Biden's appearance comes just days before the April 3 Republican presidential primary. The four remaining candidates are making stops around Wisconsin this week.

Just hours after Biden is to be in Milwaukee, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was to be at an event at Marquette University. U.S. Rep. Ron Paul scheduled a town hall meeting Thursday night in Madison.

Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney also had numerous events in the state this week.
