MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Hillary Clinton plans to campaign in Green Bay next week with President Barack Obama.

Clinton's campaign announced Thursday that she and Obama planned to campaign together in Green Bay on Wednesday. It is their first scheduled joint appearance since Obama endorsed Clinton for president on Thursday.

Clinton says in the email that she and the president will "discuss building on the progress we've made and their vision for an America that is stronger together."

Wisconsin Republican Party spokesman Pat Garrett says Clinton is a "dishonest politician" who has a record of scandal and will be rejected by Wisconsin voters.

The appearance in Green Bay speaks to the importance both of Wisconsin as a state in the general election and winning that area. Both of the state Republican and Democratic parties held their state conventions in Green Bay this spring.
