MOSINEE — Vice President Vice Pence was once again on the campaign trail in Wisconsin Wednesday.

Pence attended a campaign event in Mosinee Wednesday afternoon, despite several members of his staff, including his chief of staff, testing positive for COVID-19 this week.

About 35 minutes into his speech to a crowd of supporters, the VP addressed the pandemic.

"Despite heartbreaking losses, I truly believe the American people should be proud of the sacrifices, and as cases rise, we make sure we keep supplies for hospitals," Pence said.

The coronavirus was not the focus for Pence Wednesday. The vice president focused on the economy, especially jobs for voters in battleground Wisconsin.

President Trump attended a campaign event in La Crosse County Tuesday, and former vice president Joe Biden is expected to visit Wisconsin this Friday. The location of that event has yet to be announced.

A Marquette Law Poll found that Biden leads Trump in Wisconsin 48-43 percent, according to respondents, with a margin of error of +/- 4.4 percent.
