MADISON, Wis. (WFRV) - President Obama was back in Wisconsin Monday rallying some last minute support just one day ahead of the election. It was his third time in the state in less than a week.
Obama spoke to a crowd of about 18,000 people in the streets near the capitol. He brought along a special guest to make his final plea to Wisconsin voters.
"I stood with President Obama four years ago, and I'm proud to be standing with him again today," rock legend Bruce Springsteen said.
Springsteen kicked off Obama's last day of campaigning in Madison.
The president was rallying support ahead of an election he sees as a clear choice between progression and top down policies that crashed the economy.
"I want to cut the growth of tuition in half by the next 10 years," Obama said. "I want to recruit 100,000 new math and science teachers so we don't fall behind the rest of the world. Train 200 million Americans in our community colleges with the skills that businesses are looking for right now. That's what change is. That's what we're fighting for in this election."
Obama said the status quo that fought him on reforming health care and Wall Street are betting on voter fatigue and now's the time to prove them wrong.
"What they're counting on now is that you're going to be so worn down, so fed up, so tired of all the squabbling, so tired of all the dysfunction, that you're just going to give up and walk away and leave them right where they are," he said. "Pulling the strings, pulling the levers and locked out of the decisions that impact your lives. They're betting on cynicism, but Wisconsin, my bets on you."
Obama also made stops Monday in Ohio and Iowa.
