Trump heads to Wisconsin as candidates converge on state


BROOKFIELD, Wis. (AP) — Donald Trump plans to make his first campaign appearance in Wisconsin with a rally in House Speaker Paul Ryan’s hometown, while the four other presidential candidates are also converging on the state a week before its primary.

Trump’s rally in Janesville, Wisconsin, on Tuesday comes as he tries to stave off Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who has been campaigning in the state for a week. Cruz was expected to land the endorsement of Republican Gov. Scott Walker, who said he would announce his decision Tuesday morning.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich is keeping up his role trying to play spoiler for Trump by campaigning in Wisconsin.

Democrat Hillary Clinton is scheduled to partake in a gun violence forum in Milwaukee, while her rival, Bernie Sanders, is heading to Appleton and Milwaukee.
