President Obama's visit to Wisconsin Tuesday may be about more than this November's elections.


Even though Barack Obama was campaigning for Wisconsin Democrats like Gubernatorial candidate Tom Barrett and U.S. Senate incumbent Russ Feingold, the president may be looking even further ahead. UW-Whitewater Political Science Professor Emeritus John Kozlowics says, with the president's popularity waning, he's very conscious of his own reelection chances in 2012.


Kozlowics says the repeated visits to Wisconsin by the president shows the importance the Democratic Party is placing on winning in Wisconsin.
