UPDATE: In Green Bay, Obama Says Romney Not Agent of Change

UPDATED Thursday, November 1, 2012 --- 11:27 a.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- President Barack Obama is closing the final days of the presidential campaign by declaring that rival Mitt Romney is not the agent of change he portrays himself to be. Instead, Obama is asking for four more years to complete changes he's been trying to usher in since his election four years ago.

Obama told an airport rally in Green Bay, Wis., that his administration has met many of his goals but hasn't finished the job.

Thursday's rally was the first of three political stops for Obama, his first campaign outing since Superstorm Sandy struck on Monday.

A day after touring New Jersey damage with Republican Gov. Chris Christie, Obama said the storm was a reminder that political leaders can put aside partisanship to address the country's needs.

ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (AP) -- President Obama's campaign says he'll make a stop in Wisconsin on Thursday.

The president is to make remarks on the tarmac at Austin Straubel International Airport near Green Bay.

A new Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday shows Obama leading Republican Mitt Romney 51 percent to 43 percent in Wisconsin.

The poll of 1,243 likely voters was done between Oct. 25 and Sunday and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.

Romney plans to campaign near Milwaukee on Friday.

Both running mates, Paul Ryan and Joe Biden, are also campaigning in Wisconsin this week.
