The Vice-President will then travel to Superior, WI in a sign of just how important the Badger state is to the President's re-election bid.
A recent Rasmussen poll showed the President and Republican challenger Mitt Romney in a dead heat in Wisconsin, although other recent polls have indicated the President maintains a slight edge with a week to go in the campaign. Both CNN and the website RealClearPolitics.com list Wisconsin as a 'toss-up,' one of eight states including Iowa which pundits say will decide the election. Both websites predict that if Obama can win the toss-up states of Ohio, Wisconsin and Iowa, he will be re-elected. Romney is listed as trailing in the Electoral College vote count by both CNN and RealClearPolitics, and would require a more complex combination of battleground state victories to win the election. National polls indicate the popular vote is a virtual tie.
President Obama was scheduled to appear in Green Bay Tuesday, but cancelled so he could monitor federal emergency needs from hurricane Sandy.
Beloit lies just outside Republican Vice-Presidential candidate Congressman Paul Ryan's recently redrawn 1st Congressional District, and falls within the 2nd Congressional District, where current incumbant Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin is locked in a tight race for U.S. Senate against former Governor and Republican Tommy Thompson. It is unknown if Baldwin will join Biden on his campaign stop.
Ryan will make stops in Eau Claire, Green Bay, Racine, LaCrosse and Hudson Tuesday and Wednesday.
