UPDATED: Obama for America announced today that Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton will be in Wisconsin on Nov. 1.

Obama will appear at an event in Green Bay at the Austin Straubel Airport at 8:30 a.m.

Clinton will hold a grassroots event in Waukesha to rally supporters for the president's re-election. Details on the campaign event are being finalized.

Joe Biden also is scheduled to visit the state. His itinerary calls for stops in Beloit and Superior on Nov. 2.

Both Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney's campaigns see Wisconsin as one of nine battleground states that could tip the Nov. 6 election.

The latest from Public Policy Polling shows Obama leading by five points in Wisconsin and in Iowa.

In Iowa, the spread is 50/45, representing a 3 point increase in Obama’s advantage compared to a week ago.

In Wisconsin Obama is at 51 percent to Mitt Romney’s 46 percent.

Romney running mate Paul Ryan is in Wisconsin today. In Eau Claire, he talked of an American renaissance: "Our commitment is really clear. We're saying here are the solutions; here are the principles we're going to use; here's our proven bipartisan track record of actually delivering results and getting things done; here's what we're going to do. And I've got to tell you, 2013 could be a renaissance in America, in the world and in America. 2013 can be the year we get our economy growing, we start creating 12 million new jobs, we put these pro-growth policies in place and we reaffirm the American idea by electing Mitt Romney the next President of the United States."
