MADISON - Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris will appear in Milwaukee on Monday, the same day Vice President Mike Pence will speak in La Crosse.
The twin visits come less than a week after President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden made stops in Kenosha and underscore Wisconsin's central role in the Nov. 3 presidential election.
It will be Harris' first visit to Wisconsin — or any other battleground state — since she accepted the party's nomination two weeks ago. Biden and Harris didn't attend the mostly virtual Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee because of the coronavirus pandemic and instead delivered their speeches in Biden's home state of Delaware.
Biden's campaign announced on Friday that Harris, a U.S. senator from California, would visit the state Monday but did not provide any other details about the trip. Her visit continues a long tradition of national Democrats campaigning in Milwaukee on Labor Day.
Pence this week announced he will visit Dairyland Power Cooperative in La Crosse on Monday to talk about America's workforce.
Pence was last in Wisconsin the week of the Democratic National Convention when he and Trump made separate stops in the state to highlight their willingness to come here as most Democrats steered clear of the convention because of COVID-19.
