Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – Some of you may remember when George H.W. Bush visited the Chippewa Valley in 1992.

We are remembering his stop today, on the day of his state funeral in Washington D.C.

The president made a whistle-stop tour by train through Wisconsin, stopping in Chippewa Falls on October 31, just three days before the election.

A huge crowd greeted the president in Chippewa Falls.

He joked about reports that Iraq’s former leader Saddam Hussein was planning a rally to celebrate Bush’s defeat. He promised the crowd that would not happen, but as you know, Bush lost that election to Bill Clinton.
