GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – The presidential candidates are sending their surrogates to Wisconsin Wednesday in an effort to woo voters in a state that appears to be up for grabs.
Sen. Bernie Sanders will make stops in Green Bay and Madison on behalf of former rival Hillary Clinton.
The Clinton campaign says Sanders will encourage supporters to vote early in Wisconsin.
“Sanders will say let’s raise the minimum wage to a living wage, let’s combat climate change and move to sustainable energy, let’s make public colleges and universities tuition free, let’s end a broken criminal justice system,” says a statement from the campaign.
The Green Bay rally is scheduled for 3:45 p.m. at the Salvation Army Kroc Center. Click here to register.
In Madison, Sanders will be joined by democratic U.S. Senate candidate Russ Feingold.
On the Trump side, the Republican candidate’s son Donald Trump Jr will make stops in Brookfield and Marathon. The Marathon event is being held by Vets for Trump at Zingers Indoor Shooting Range and Training Facility. Click here to find out more about the event.
GOP nominee Trump is expected to return to Wisconsin on Saturday, but the campaign has not released any information on the location or time. Action 2 News will bring you that information as soon as we learn it.
Hillary Clinton has not been in Wisconsin since the primary election. Clinton and President Obama canceled a stop in Green Bay after the Pulse Nightclub Shooting in Orlando.
Chelsea Clinton has been active in the state pushing early voting.
Wisconsin helped elect President Barack Obama in the previous two elections, but polls show the state could swing red or blue this November. A Sept. 21 Marquette University Law School Poll gives Clinton a slight edge over Trump, 45-42 percent among likely voters.
Action 2 News will have coverage of both events tonight.
