President Donald Trump's re-election campaign showed how important the swing state of Wisconsin is by sending both Vice President Mike Pence and Trump himself to visit in the same week.

Technically, Trump's appearance Thursday in Marinette was not a campaign event. He was at Fincantieri Marinette Marine to talk about the Navy's investment in shipbuilding.

But Thursday evening he was scheduled to appear with Fox News Anchor Sean Hannity for a special interview from Green Bay.

Pence was in Pewaukee Tuesday. He spoke to a small crowd at a hotel for his Faith in America tour, and also met with school choice advocates earlier in the day.

In between those visits, the latest Marquette Law School Poll showed Trump trailed Democrat Joe Biden by a 49%-41% margin. Trump won Wisconsin's electoral votes in 2016 by the slimmest of margins.
