WAUWATOSA -- Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch made a stop in Wauwatosa Thursday, August 23rd to talk with volunteers for the Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan ticket.

Kleefisch also discussed first lady Michelle Obama's visit to Milwaukee and Oak Creek Thursday afternoon. Kleefisch says she doesn't feel the first lady's visit was enough, and would like President Obama himself to visit the state.

"I'm sure Wisconsin would like to hear from him cause we're a state full of hardworking folks. We're a state full of people who just need to fill up our gas tanks everyday. Gas when he took office was $1.85 a gallon. Today it's close to $4. We just can't afford four more years of a Barack Obama presidency," Kleefisch said.

Michelle Obama spoke at a campaign event at Bradley Tech High School Thursday afternoon, and then visited with Sikh Temple shooting victims' families at Oak Creek High School.
