Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump heads back to Wisconsin today, although it remains unclear if any of the state’s top GOP leaders will appear with him during a rally in Green Bay.
Governor Scott Walker will be out of state for an event in New Jersey, while U.S. Senator Ron Johnson’s campaign said he has a prior engagement and 8th District U.S. House candidate Mike Gallagher declined to attend, citing his debate prep schedule.
House Speaker Paul Ryan already announced last week he would no longer campaign with Trump, following reports about sexually aggressive comments the nominee made about women in a 2005 video. Several women have also come forward in the past week claiming Trump inappropriately touched them.
Trump will speak at Green Bay’s KI Convention Center this evening.
UPDATE: Trump’s campaign announced Monday morning that several Wisconsin Republicans would appear at the rally. The list of those speaking at the event include Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgeral (R-Juneau), U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI), and state Republican Party chairman Brad Courtney. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is also scheduled to appear, after helping to introduce Trump during a rally in Waukesha last month.
