MADISON, Wis. (AP) — President Donald Trump plans to travel to Janesville on Saturday, two weeks after he canceled a rally for there and Green Bay following his positive coronavirus test.
The initial Janesville rally was a rescheduled one, after a Trump MAGA rally was cancelled by Colgan Air Service in La Crosse for a potential breach of contract with the airport.
Trump’s campaign on Monday announced a fundraiser for Janesville on Saturday, with donations beginning at $1,000. No other details about public events, either in Janesville or elsewhere in the state, were announced.
Trump was resuming campaign travel on Monday after he was hospitalized and then quarantined at the White House following his positive test. He was scheduled to hold a rally in Florida on Monday, before coming to battleground Wisconsin over the weekend.
Vice President Mike Pence planned to campaign Tuesday in Waukesha County, touring a manufacturing plant he previously visited with then-Gov. Scott Walker in 2017. Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, was also slated to be in northeast Wisconsin on Tuesday. Trump’s son Eric Trump had stops in the Milwaukee suburbs and near Janesville on Monday.
Polls show a tight race in Wisconsin, with Democrat Joe Biden holding a narrow single-digit lead, often within the margin of error. Trump carried Wisconsin by fewer than 23,000 votes in 2016 and the state is seen as pivotal to both campaigns.
