Gov. Deval Patrick is back on the campaign trail for President Barack Obama, this time with appearances planned in the home state of Republican Mitt Romney's running mate, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan.
Patrick is scheduled to discuss health care and Ryan's budget proposal with a group of seniors in Madison on Tuesday and later make a stop in Milwaukee before returning to Massachusetts in the afternoon.
Patrick last year formed a political action committee, called Together PAC, to finance his travels and activities on behalf of Obama's re-election effort. The PAC had raised nearly $1.3 million through June 30, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission.
Patrick is scheduled to speak next month at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.
