UPDATE (8 p.m. Friday): Donald Trump won't attend Elkhorn event Saturday after lewd comments surface


It’s shaping up to be a huge weekend on the campaign trail in the Badger State. Both Donald Trump and Bill Clinton will be rallying Saturday afternoon in southeastern Wisconsin. 

Both parties are coming out in full force for Wisconsin, a state believed to be a toss up with a little more than a month until the presidential election. Friday brought stops by Clinton surrogates Senator Elizabeth Warren and Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. 

"Hillary is tough, Hillary is courageous,” Giffords said in her speech about ending gun violence. 

However, Friday’s rallies do not compare to the major showdown to come on Saturday for both parties. 

"I don’t remember the last time we had several come back to back like that so it’s a huge deal,” said Karina Turner of Milwaukee.  

The latest Marquette poll shows Clinton holds a 2-point lead in Wisconsin, a figure within the margin of error. From Friday to Monday, several surrogates and one presidential candidate will be after the undecided voters.  

"I probably won’t know how I’m going to vote until that day when I actually pull the switch,” said Suzette of Milwaukee. 

Wisconsin is expected to see a lot of activity on the campaign trail over the next four weeks. On a local level, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett praises Clinton for her push to end gun violence.  

“The most difficult part of this job is the violence we see in this city,” Barrett said. 

For Governor Scott Walker, his endorsement of former competitor Trump brings a message of overall change. 

“If people like the way things are they should be with Hillary Clinton, if they want a change, if they want things to be better and safer in America then she certainly isn’t the candidate to do that,” Walker said. 

Donald Trump is scheduled to speak at 1:30 p.m. at the Walworth County Fairgrounds in Elkhorn.

Bill Clinton’s rally is scheduled for 4 p.m. at IBEW Local 494, 3303 South 103rd St. in Milwaukee.
