Friday, October 30, 2020 - President Donald Trump held a Make America Great Again event at the Austin Straubel International Airport in Green Bay on Friday, Oct. 30.
It was the president's third campaign stop in the Badger State during a seven-day period. He was in West Salem near La Crosse on Tuesday and in Waukesha the previous Saturday, Oct. 24.
President Trump won Wisconsin by fewer than 23,000 votes in 2016. It was 2016's tipping point that lead to White House victory for the Trump campaign.
"If we win the state, you know what, it’s all over," President Trump said Friday.
The president for a little help from former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre on Friday. Favre said he is now on Trump's team. His former head coach in Green Bay, Mike Holmgren, is backing Joe Biden.
In the Packers' home town, the crowd of thousands was packed outdoors at the airport, many with no masks. Democrats said it is putting lives at risk with COVID-19 numbers rising in the hot-spot state.
Republicans, like President Trump and former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker won Brown County in the past. In the most recent Wisconsin Supreme Court race, though, the county went for the progressive candidate.
On Saturday, Oct. 31, first lady Melania Trump will make a rare campaign stop, visiting West Bend. The president himself will return to Wisconsin on Nov. 2 -- one day before Election Day -- to campaign in Kenosha.
