Yep. And Obama was in Wisconsin yesterday. All three stops on college campuses. Wonder why?

BTW, Obama half-an-hour late for today's rally.

Obama finished a couple minutes ago. Awaiting start of Romney.

Reporter on Twitter said earlier that Romney delayed his arrival at rally to allow people backed up in line to get through security.

Obama speaks to college students at universities.

Romney speaks to workers at businesses.

The trend continues.
