Vice President Mike Pence Visits Wisconsin to Rally Support Ahead of Midterms

November 03, 2018 08:18 PM

The Governor's race in Wisconsin is so close it could go either way.

With just three days to go, the Vice President traveled to Hudson to put some star power behind current Gov. Scott Walker.


Vice President Mike Pence spoke in front of hundreds who gathered inside a Wisconsin warehouse to listen as he spoke on support for law enforcement, jobs and immigration.

"We've been enforcing our laws and we've been securing our border and we've already started to build that wall," said Pence, followed by a roar from the crowd.

Despite rally-goers interest in immigration, Walker never mentioned it. Instead, focusing in on job growth and affordable healthcare.

"As long as I'm your governor, everyone living with a pre-existing condition will always be covered," he said.

That promise was prompted by opponent Tony Evers' focus on health care and education as he, too, crisscrossed the state on the campaign trail.

The state school superintendent spent Saturday rallying support in Green Bay.

"We're going to try to bring people together," he said.  "We're going to try to end the polarization. People are sick of that, frankly, and I think that's an important message."

Polls show the two are neck-and-neck.

Pence urged the crowd to vote and find nine others to vote as well, saying numbers at the polls are the only thing in the way of another term for Walker.
