Vice President Mike Pence is coming to Wisconsin next week for a pair of events to raise money for Gov. Scott Walker.

Invitations obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday show that Pence is scheduled to host fundraisers in Green Bay and Eau Claire on Oct. 10, just a month before the election.

Walker is locked in a tight battle with Democrat Tony Evers. Recent polls have shown Evers with a slight lead over Walker, who is running for a third term.
