During the 2008 Democratic Primary, President Obama campaigned at UW-Madison in a rally at Kohl Center attended by 17,000 as part of his historic Presidential campaign. In returning, his objective is to energize young voters and encourage their participation in the midterm elections, as indicated in a statement released by Democratic Party Chairman Tim Kaine: “Young people have been critical to the movement that elected President Obama in 2008. Kicking off our Fall Moving America Forward events with a college and youth focus in Madison is a great start to the last five weeks of a critical campaign.”
The President is currently on a four-state (New Mexico, Wisconsin, Iowa and Virginia) three-day campaigning and fundraising trip for Democratic candidates.
