JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) – President Donald Trump is making a late reelection pitch to voters Saturday in Michigan and Wisconsin, states in the Upper Midwest that were instrumental to his 2016 victory but may now be slipping from his grasp.
On Saturday, President Trump will visit Janesville, Wisconsin for a campaign rally scheduled to start at 6 p.m.
According to campaign officials, the president will speak at a Make America Great Again rally at Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport, and doors opened at 3 p.m. for the event.
People planning on attending President Donald Trump’s rally Saturday at the Janesville airport will have to park over two miles away and take a shuttle bus to the event.
The rally is taking place as coronavirus cases soar in Wisconsin.
The state hit a record daily high for newly reported cases on Friday, with 3,861.
It was the third time in one week that a record high was hit.
Hospitalizations were also at an all-time high this week.
The Rock County Sheriff’s Department said Thursday that attendees of Trump’s airport rally will have to park at Blackhawk Technical College about 2.5 miles away and take shuttle buses to the event.
The campaign says everyone who attends the event will be given a temperature check, masks which they will be instructed to wear,
