Chelsea Clinton campaigns in Green Bay

GREEN BAY -- One of the Clinton campaign's top surrogates was in Wisconsin on Friday. Hillary Clinton's daughter, Chelsea Clinton spoke in Green Bay.

“It's great to be back in Wisconsin," Clinton yelled to a riled up crowd at Meyer Theatre. "I do worry that everything I care most about is at stake."

Clinton was quick to the jabs in her first campaign stop in Titletown. She called out Republican nominee Donald Trump for his performance in Monday’s presidential debate.

"The racism, the Islamophobia, the homophobia," Clinton said. “That is not who we are."

Clinton moved on to the issues at the forefront of her mother’s campaign including equal pay, minimum wage, healthcare and gun safety.

"I know this is a very polarizing issue in Wisconsin," said one rally attendee.

Clinton responded, saying, “Things like uniform background checks and finally passing a rule so that anyone on the no-fly list can buy a gun."

"Chelsea is obviously very bright and committed to social justice," said Clinton supporter Mary Lou Robinson.

But not everyone in the crowd supported her message.

"The old adage is keep your friends close and your enemies closer," said Jim Fox of Green Bay.

Fox came as a Trump fan and said he left that way.

"At least with Trump I don't know what I'm getting, I'll take a chance,” he said. “With Hillary, I know what I'm getting. This country can't afford another four years of Obama."

With polls showing a close race in the Badger State, everyone in attendance could agree on Clinton’s plea for a large voter turnout.

"Reach out to your friends and family,” said Clinton supporter Loren Prince. “Make sure they know that this election is important."

Clinton took many questions from the crowd during the rally, however she did not mention if Hillary plans to make a campaign stop in Wisconsin before Election Day.
