MILWAUKEE (AP) — Forget seeing the leader of the free world.
Eight-year-old McKenzie Heindenreich of Janesville was waiting in line for President Barack Obama's rally in Milwaukee not to see him, but his opening act pop star Katy Perry.
McKenzie and her family were among the thousands who braved temperatures in the mid-30s waiting to get inside the Delta Center in downtown Milwaukee for the Obama rally.
Obama campaign spokesman Joe Zepecki says about 9,000 can fit in the area where a stage for Perry's performance was set up to the side of Obama's podium.
On Monday, Obama is bringing Bruce Springsteen to Madison for his final Wisconsin campaign stop before the election.
Perry is expected to play for about 30 minutes before Obama's speech Saturday.
