MOSINEE, Wis. (WBAY) - The Trump re-election campaign announced President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will make separate trips to the Badger State next week.

Pence will start the week speaking in Janesville on Monday, Sept. 14. Trump will cap off the week leading an event in Mosinee, outside Wausau, the night of Friday, Sept. 18.

The campaign says Pence will visit Wisconsin and Montana on Monday, promoting the administration’s America First trade deals and stronger national security and the “radical consequences” of electing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Doors to the event at the Holiday Inn Conference Center open at 9 a.m. with the “Make America Great Again” event starting at 11.

Then, on Friday, the president will host a “Great American Comeback” event at Central Wisconsin Aviation, located at the Central Wisconsin Airport, at 7 P.M. He’ll fly into Mosinee after campaign events in Bemidji, Minn.

The campaign says the event in Mosinee will be general admission with doors opening at 4 P.M.

President Trump held a rally inside a hangar in Mosinee in October, 2018, less than two years into his presidency. The event attracted thousands of people.

Also Thursday, the campaign for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden announced former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike Holmgren is helping the campaign. Holmgren will join Green Bay Mayor Eric Genrich in an online news conference Friday to discuss the changes to the football season due to the pandemic and the economic impact to Green Bay.

The campaign says the Packers season was scaled down “as a result of Trump’s failure to respond to the coronavirus pandemic,” and that Holmgren and Genrich will explain how “Trump has failed Green Bay’s economy."

As we reported last month, the Greater Green Bay Convention and Visitors Bureau estimated the local economy has lost $100 million this summer from the loss of training camp, two preseason home games, and the Badgers-Notre Dame game that was planned at Lambeau Field.
