MILWAUKEE (WAOW) -
President Barack Obama visited the Badger state for the second time in less than a week, and brought pop star Katy Perry with him.
The singer played some of her greatest hits before President Obama took the stage Saturday afternoon.
Event organizers said a crowd of around 20,000 people showed up at the Delta Center in downtown Milwaukee to hear the President speak.
"It's not a choice between two candidates or two parties. It's a choice between two very different visions for our future," he said of the Presidential election.
In his speech, President Obama focused on the economy and job creation.
"I don't want a tax code that rewards companies for shipping jobs overseas. I want to reward companies that are investing right here in Milwaukee."
And he told supporters he'd cross party lines to do so.
"I will work with anybody of any party to move the country forward," he said.
The President also talked about the importance of manufacturing in order to boost the economy. "Investing in Wisconsin. Investing in the next generation of manufacturing. That's the future I see for our country and I know it's there. It's ready, within our grasp," President Obama said.
President Obama is scheduled to make another campaign stop in the Badger state with Bruce Springsteen. That event will take place in Madison on Monday.
