A year later, Walker will be back to welcome Pence, who will be  campaigning in the deepest Republican part of Wisconsin, an area that Trump must do well in if he hopes to win Wisconsin. The anti-Trump movement was strong there before Wisconsin's primary.

It will be the first national candidate Bryce Pierson has ever seen.

"Indiana has had huge success balancing their budget and I think, obviously, he's done an extremely good job as the governor of Indiana," Pierson said.

"We just need to call people to make sure that all our volunteers are aware the event is going on so they can go to that event and also to get all our interns and volunteers to help out with the event," Alexandra Kurpiel said.

These volunteers said Pence's visit to Waukesha is an exciting kickoff to the final 104 days until the November election.

"I think it's a very exciting election. It has been since the primaries, and right now, it's just about unifying the party to make sure the Republicans get the vote in November," Kurpiel said.
