Trump urges early Clinton voters to change votes during stop in Eau Claire
One week from election, Trump praises Walker, says Clinton voters have 'buyer's remorse'
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WKBT) — One week from election day, Donald Trump is making one last pitch to voters in Western Wisconsin.
Flanked by some of the top Republicans in the state, Trump brought his message of change to the campus of UW-Eau Claire Tuesday night.
Trump said electing Hillary Clinton would mean more of the same and referenced her latest e-mail scandal, in which it was revealed she was fed a question ahead of time in a Democratic primary debate.
He also told people who already cast absentee ballots for Clinton that there’s still time to change their mind.
“For any Democratic voter who have already cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton and who are having a bad case of buyer’s remorse, in other words you want to change your vote, Wisconsin is one of several states where you can change your early ballot if you think you’ve made a mistake,” said Trump. “A lot of stuff has come out since you voted.”
Trump was introduced by Congressman Sean Duffy, Senator Ron Johnson and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
Even though Walker has been hesitant to throw his full support behind the Republican nominee, Trump had high praise for Walker at tonight’s event.
“I ran against him. He is tough. He is brutal. I want to be very respectful. He is one tough cookie, so to Governor Walker, I want to thank you,” said Trump. “Tremendous, tremendous competitor, and we’re with him forever.”
Trump’s running mate Mike Pence was also originally scheduled to appear in Eau Claire but was re-routed to a campaign event in Arizona instead.
