Clinton to campaign in Wis after Obama cancels

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -

Former President Bill Clinton will be campaigning in Wisconsin this week after President Barack Obama canceled his planned campaign stop Tuesday in Green Bay due to Hurricane Sandy.

Obama's campaign says Clinton will come to Wisconsin as part of a swing this week that will also take him to Minnesota, Iowa, Colorado, Ohio, Virginia and New Hampshire.

No details about when he will come to Wisconsin or where in the state he will be were released.

Obama canceled his Green Bay appearance in order to stay in Washington to monitor the hurricane and handle the response.

Republican Mitt Romney planned to campaign in the Milwaukee area on Monday, and his running mate Paul Ryan planned to be in the state on Wednesday.
