According to a statement from Clinton’s campaign, Sanders will discuss Clinton’s plan to build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top, and Donald Trump’s plan, which would benefit himself and other millionaires and billionaires.
At the event, Sanders will say let’s raise the minimum wage to a living wage, let’s combat climate change and move to sustainable energy, let’s make public colleges and universities tuition free, let’s end a broken criminal justice system. Most importantly, let’s defeat Donald Trump and make Hillary Clinton our next president.
With more people voting in this election than any in history, Sanders will also urge Wisconsinites to get involved in organizing their communities ahead of November’s election and to check their registration status.
Sanders’ visit comes after Chelsea Clinton’s visit to Green Bay’s Meyer Theatre on Friday, September 30th, to rally supporters for her mom, Hillary Clinton.
Chelsea Clinton encouraged folks to register to vote and answered questions about her mother’s plans to raise the minimum wage, pass gun safety legislation and eliminate the national debt.
One day prior, on Thursday, September 29th, Anne Holton, the wife of Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, campaigned in Milwaukee to advance the Democratic position. Holton promoted voting early for Clinton, and gave Clinton’s debate performance a positive review.
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump faced off in their first presidential debate on Monday, September 26th at Hofstra University in New York.
A vice presidential debate is set for Tuesday, October 4th at Longwood University in Virginia.
