This week, candidate Mary Burke and current Governor Scott Walker had big names on the campaign trail. While New Jersey Governor Chris Christie traveled to Hudson with Walker, First Lady Michelle Obama appeared with Burke at a rally in Milwaukee.

The First Lady’s speech focused on getting out the vote, knocking on doors, and getting 2012 presidential election voters to turn out. During the August primary in Wisconsin, voter turnout was 12.7 percent.

Governor Chris Christie spoke at a rally for Walker and visited a Wisconsin manufacturing facility with the Wisconsin governor.

The First Lady is expected to return to Wisconsin for another rally for Mary Burke on October 7th.
