Doyle says Obama visit unlikely before election

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Jim Doyle says it's unlikely Barack Obama will return to campaign in Wisconsin before next week's presidential election.

Obama had been expected to hold a huge rally near the Capitol in Madison last week but he canceled so he could visit his ailing grandmother in Hawaii.

Doyle says he's been talking to the campaign about scheduling another visit but says that's unlikely because, "now every single minute of his time has to be at its highest and best use."

He says that requires Obama to be in states such as North Carolina and Colorado in the week before the election.

The Democratic governor says he believes Wisconsin will see Obama a lot if he's elected president.
