Another visit to the La Crosse area means more bills from law enforcement to President Donald Trump’s campaign.

Donald Trump is holding a Make America Great Again rally at the La Crosse Fairgrounds Speedway, beginning at 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Earlier this month, the city of La Crosse police department was still owed over $15,000 for visits to the area from both Trump and Vice President Mike Pence — most of that money dating back to 2016.

Pence’s visit to Dairyland Power Co-op on Labor Day last month cost police $5,574.10. An invoice police likely said would take some time to go through all the channels before being repaid.

The other bills date back to the 2016 campaign from visits by both Trump and Pence that total $9,904.18.
