WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKOW) — The Washington Post is reporting that President Trump’s advisers have tried to tell him not to come to Wisconsin to campaign for Gov. Scott Walker.
The report says the advisers believe Walker is going to lose to Tony Evers in the November 6 election.
Trump is scheduled to campaign for state Sen. Leah Vukmir, who is running against Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin. Gov. Walker confirmed to 27 News earlier this week that he would be at the event.
Former Governor Tommy Thompson spoke to 27 News Friday about the story. He says it would be a mistake if President Trump chose not to visit.
“He could have an influence on the voters and possibly bring Scott Walker to the finish line,” Thompson said. “That would be fantastic and a perfect feather in his cap, so his advisors should tell him to come here, not the opposite — which I hear that might not actually be true.”
The president’s rally will be at the Central Wisconsin Airport in Mosinee Wednesday.
