President Barack Obama arrived in Madison, Wis., at about 2:40 a.m. Monday, the Wisconsin State Journal reports. He and rocker Bruce Springsteen rallied a crowd there later in the morning.

The newspaper had a live blog. (The newspaper endorsed Obama in 2008 and Romney in 2012.)

Obama was up 8 points over GOP challenger Mitt Romney in Wisconsin in a Marquette University poll a few days ago.

Romney's running mate Paul Ryan, a Wisconsin congressman, probably gives Romney a small boost but not enough to help him carry the state, Bloomberg reports.

Obama is also scheduled for an appearance Monday in Ohio, and Des Moines, Iowa, will be his final stop before he heads back to Chicago, the Des Moines Register reports.

Romney on Monday is scheduled to be in Florida, Ohio, New Hampshire and Virginia, Fox News reports.
