MILWAUKEE - Ahead of Election Day, Joe Biden made his final campaign stop on Monday, Nov. 2 -- where it all started in April of 2019 -- in Western Pennsylvania. On stage in Pittsburgh, he said: "Folks, I have a feeling we're coming together for a big win tomorrow."
Meantime, democrats made a final push to sway Wisconsin voters at the ballot box. Biden last visited the Badger State on Friday, Oct. 30 when he held a small, private event at Mitchell International Airport. However, over the weekend, and on the eve of Election Day -- his campaign surrogates were on the ground, advancing efforts to get him elected.
"Wisconsin is really where it’s at," said Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar. "All eyes are on Wisconsin right now."
With just hours to spare before the polls open Tuesday, Nov. 3, supporters of Joe Biden encouraged voters to elect the former vice president as our next president.
"And that has a lot to do with the fact that Joe Biden is bringing a strong, strong, strong support here," Klobuchar said.
Biden himself on Monday, Nov. 2 tweeted: "One day, let's win this thing."
"We know the soul of the nation is quite literally on the line, as Joe Biden always states," said Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes.
If elected, Biden has committed to "make sure every American has access to a free and safe COVID-19 vaccine."
"There is a public health crisis our president refuses to take seriously, he downplays the severity while we have lost almost a quarter-million people in this country," Barnes said.
It's a talking point among surrogates, including Klobuchar.
"He is doing it the right way, by saying to people, 'Look the virus is going out of control here, it’s not good, it’s not good for people.' We need a president that has a plan, that’s actually going to make good on that plan," she said.
Others, like U.S. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey, are encouraging Wisconsinites — no matter what — to make their voices heard.
"You all really are a battleground state, what you do can make a difference in the course of our country, and if you have that kind of power, not to use it, I think that’s a whole lot of wrong," Sen. Booker said.
