Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is heading to Green Bay this week. The Associated Presss reports that Trump plans to campaign in Green Bay around 6 p.m. Friday at a venue yet to be named.
“Wisconsin is in play, also Brown County is very crucial and we’ve always known that,” says Marian Krumberger, chairwoman of the Republican Party of Brown County. “We know that he will do well, he will win Brown County. But we need to have a very good turnout and a really strong showing for him to take the state of Wisconsin.”
It’s his first visit to Wisconsin since before April’s primary. Trump lost that primary election to Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Krumberger believes getting the support from both Governor Scott Walker and House Speaker Paul Ryan will be a boost for Trump.
This comes amid a growing dispute between the business mogul and the parents of a Muslim U.S. Army officer killed in the Iraq war.
“You know we need to stay focused on issues,” Krumberger says in answering a question about the controversy. “The issues being security for all of us, our economy and that’s what everyone needs to be focused on.”
Governor Scott Walker said on Sunday that the parents of Army Captain Humayun Khan should be off limits.
“I’ve gone to too many funerals, met too many families. What they’ve sacrificed is just unbelievable,” said Walker.
