President Barack Obama hopes to improve the fortunes of suddenly imperiled Wisconsin Democrats with his third visit to the state in a little over two months.

Obama is returning to speak at the same Labor Day rally in Milwaukee on Monday where an enthusiastic crowd greeted him two years ago toward the end of his campaign. He went on to carry Wisconsin by a 14-point margin.

But since then his approval ratings have dropped. Democrats facing tough election bids are happy for any boost he can deliver. U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold is in a tough re-election bid against a Republican newcomer and Democrats are trying to hold on to the governor's office.

Obama was in Milwaukee three weeks ago to raise money for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Barrett.
