GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is coming to Green Bay this week to encourage people to vote early for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Sen. Sanders will also campaign for Russ Feingold, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Wisconsin, on Wednesday. Doors will open at 3:45 p.m. with the rally beginning at 4:45 p.m. at The Salvation Army Kroc Community Center, 1315 Lime Kiln Road, Green Bay.
According to the Clinton campaign, his trip will focus on how Clinton’s economic plan will help people. He’ll also discuss raising the minimum wage, combating climate change, fixing the criminal justice system, and making public college and universities tuition free.
This will be Sen. Sander’s first trip to Northeast Wisconsin since the April primary. He made several campaign stops in the state when he was running for president as a Democrat before dropping out of the race in July. Sanders won the race against Clinton in Wisconsin.
His trip to Green Bay will come right after a stop in Madison on Wednesday.
