MILWAUKEE (AP) -- President Barack Obama has arrived in Milwaukee, where he was greeted at the airport by Gov. Scott Walker and others.

A pool report says Obama landed Monday at 1 p.m. He greeted the governor, who's a Republican, and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, a Democrat. He also hugged Democratic U.S. Congresswoman Gwen Moore.

Obama is speaking at LaborFest 2014, at Henry Maier Festival Park in Milwaukee. The event is open to ticketed guests and reporters.

This is the second time the president has addressed union members at LaborFest. He also attended the event in 2010.

He greeted the crowd with, "It's great to be back in Milwaukee!"
