WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) -- President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney both have Green Bay Packers joining them on the campaign trail.

Former quarterback Bart Starr appeared at a rally for Romney on Friday in the Milwaukee suburb of West Allis.

Starr told the audience about a book written by late coach Vince Lombardi titled, "What it Takes to Be Number One." Starr says the book points to integrity and excellence as key attributes, and Starr says he can't think of stronger words to describe Romney.

One day earlier, before Obama spoke to supporters in Green Bay, cornerback Charles Woodson praised the president for his bipartisan approach in providing storm relief on the East Coast.

Other speakers at Friday's GOP rally included Sen. Ron Johnson, Gov. Scott Walker and Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus.
