[Madison, WI] – After ignoring Wisconsin for over 670 days — including skipping his own party’s convention — Joe Biden has left the basement and will visit Wisconsin. Republican Party of Wisconsin Chairman Andrew Hitt released the following statement:
“It shouldn’t take rioters burning down the City of Kenosha to get Joe Biden to visit our state. Joe Biden made COVID excuses as to why he couldn’t visit Wisconsin, but the seven-day average of new COVID cases in Wisconsin remains nearly unchanged compared to the DNC week. This desperation trip is about Biden’s support slipping as violent anti-Trump protestors are creating chaos around the country.
“Last week, Tony Evers urged the President of the United States not to visit Wisconsin because it would ‘hinder healing.’ Thankfully, President Trump didn’t listen to him and delivered tens-of-millions of dollars in aid to help rebuild Kenosha. Will Governor Evers also urge Joe Biden to stay away?”
