At least two major party candidates are heading to Wisconsin again this week. Republican President Donald Trump and his running mate, Vice President Mike Pence, will make stops here  — after both visited within the last two weeks. Pence will be in Janesville Monday, while Trump will hold a rally Friday night in Mosinee. 

Political observers have highlighted Wisconsin’s importance in this year’s presidential race. Even so, it’s unusual to get two visits from both the president and vice president in such a short period of time.

In this week’s Capitol Notes conversation, WUWM’s Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of what kind of message he thinks Trump and Pence will have for Wisconsin voters.

Marti was a reporter with WUWM from 1999 to 2021.
