Vice President Pence stumps in Wisconsin for Vukmir

MILWAUKEE (AP) – Vice President Mike Pence is raising money in Wisconsin for Republican Senate candidate Leah Vukmir.

Pence was in Milwaukee on Thursday night for the closed-door fundraiser. Vukmir faces Democrat Tammy Baldwin in the November election.

Vukmir has trailed Baldwin in fundraising to date, but the Pence visit is sure to give her a financial boost. Pence said earlier this week in an interview on WTMJ radio that he and President Donald Trump are committed to help elect Vukmir.

Trump endorsed Vukmir after her primary victory over Kevin Nicholson two weeks ago. Trump had not endorsed in the primary.

Baldwin spokesman Bill Neidhardt says Pence is coming to support Vukmir because she supports the Trump administration’s push to eliminate the national health care law while Baldwin supports keeping it.
