The 2004 Democratic presidential nominee was among a number of Democratic leaders holding rallies Tuesday to urge voters to cast early ballots for Obama. The Illinois senator's campaign also has been pushing supporters to vote early.
Kerry told supporters Tuesday that only Obama has the leadership and knowledge to restore America's standing in the world.
About 200 people attended the rally. After Kerry spoke, 30 to 40 people walked from the rally in downtown Milwaukee to the nearby municipal building to cast absentee ballots
