Wisconsin’s status as a battleground state for the White House is on the rise.
The Badger State is getting visits from the candidates — including recent campaign stops on consecutive days from Paul Ryan in De Pere and Joe Biden in Eau Claire.
Both presidential campaigns are running ads.
And national pundits are pegging the state as one of nine that will determine the next president. Along with Wisconsin, they are: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia.
It’s all part of the fight for the state’s 10 electoral votes and puts Wisconsin back in the swing state column where its been for most of the last decade.
The back-to-back Ryan and Biden visits highlight just how important our traditional blue-collar and independent voters are to both major parties this year.
And they set the stage for the one and only vice-presidential debate on October 11 in Kentucky.
