(The Hill) — President Obama should go to Wisconsin to show his support for the labor movement, a House liberal leader said Wednesday night.

Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), the co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, ramped up pressure on the president to weigh in more heavily against the Republican governor’s labor reform proposal.

“I’d like to hear more from President Obama. He’s made some statements. He should get credit for that,” Ellison said on MSNBC. “We would like to hear him make some more statements. I think that President Obama should come to Wisconsin and stand with the workers.”
