Obama campaigns in Wisconsin against ideological foe

MILWAUKEE (Reuters) – President Barack Obama brought his weight on Tuesday to a close Wisconsin governor’s race that pits Democratic policies on equal pay and union rights against a Republican vision of smaller government from a potential 2016 presidential contender.

Obama, who has made only rare appearances on the 2014 campaign trail because of low popularity ratings, came to Milwaukee to support Democrat Mary Burke, a former Trek Bicycle executive.
