Warren campaigns with Wisconsin Democrats at UW-Madison

Other high-profile Democrats, Republicans to visit Wisconsin before Nov. 8 election

MADISON, Wis. — Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren joined Democrats on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus Wednesday to encourage voters to cast their ballots for the upcoming election.

Warren is one of many national figures coming to Wisconsin, a key battleground state, in the final days of the campaign before the Nov. 8 election.

Democrats are pushing their record on issues like supporting abortion and reproductive rights as well as efforts to expand voting rights. Warren, speaking to the college crowd as part of an early voting event, also talked up an economic message.

“In this election, the economy is on the ballot,” she said. “Republicans want this economy to work better for millionaires and billionaires, but Mandela (Barnes) and Tony (Evers) and Josh (Kaul) and all the Democrats are committed to making this economy work for everyone.”

Among the other high-profile Democrats coming to Wisconsin are U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who will be in Madison on Friday, and former President Barack Obama, who will be in Milwaukee on Saturday.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will also be campaigning in Wisconsin in the days before the election. He will take part in rallies in Madison, Eau Claire and La Crosse on Nov. 4 and a rally in Oshkosh on Nov. 5.

On the Republican side, Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin is campaigning with gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels in Waukesha. Michels said Wednesday he’s confident he will come out on top.

Neither President Joe Biden nor former President Donald Trump have announced plans to stump for Wisconsin candidates before the election, but Trump campaigned with Michels before the gubernatorial primary.
