Trump running mate Pence to campaign in Wisconsin

Donald Trump's running mate Mike Pence is expected to make his first solo campaign stop as the Republican vice presidential nominee in southeast Wisconsin on Wednesday night.

A Republican with knowledge of the campaign's plans told The Associated Press on Monday that the Indiana governor plans a campaign stop in the Waukesha area, a Republican stronghold in the state.

The stop was to be officially announced Monday night, with more details about the event expected Tuesday.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is a close political ally and friend of Pence.

Trump lost Wisconsin's primary in April by 13 points. Trump must do well among Republicans in southeast Wisconsin, where the anti-Trump movement was strong, in order to carry the state in November.
