MOSINEE – President Donald Trump will visit Mosinee on Thursday after rescheduling his trip to central Wisconsin amid a flurry of campaign activity throughout the state. 

Trump will hold a rally at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Central Wisconsin Airport in Mosinee as he enters his final months of campaigning against former Vice President Joe Biden. The president was previously scheduled to stop in Mosinee on Friday, but will now speak in Bemidji, Minnesota, that night.

The visit comes as Trump and Biden aim to make their case to voters in a state the president narrowly won in 2016. Trump carried the 7th Congressional District in central and northwestern Wisconsin, which includes Mosinee, by 20 points that year. 

The Mosinee stop will conclude a week of Trump campaign events in Wisconsin and follows several other candidate visits in recent weeks.

Vice President Mike Pence spoke Monday in Janesville, where he underscored Trump’s message of law and order and lauded the administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. The president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., will speak at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Stoney Creek Hotel and Conference Center in Rothschild.

Both Trump and Biden stopped in Kenosha earlier this month after the shooting of a Black man by police sparked unrest and violence. Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris, Biden’s running mate, visited different parts of the state on Labor Day.

Those who wish to attend Thursday’s event can register on the Trump campaign’s website. Doors open at 5 p.m. Attendees must agree to waive the campaign from liability if they are exposed to COVID-19.
