TMJ4 News has learned Ivanka Trump will be campaigning in Wisconsin for her father this Tuesday.

"I'm excited to visit Hilbert to spread the president's message of resilience and prosperity for this country in the years ahead," said Ivanka Trump.

Tuesday's visit will come three weeks before Election Day. Mail-in absentee voting has already begun in Wisconsin with nearly 647,000 early votes as of Friday and more than 1.31 million requested ballots.

The most recent Marquette Law School Poll shows former Vice President Joe Biden leading President Trump 46% to 41% among likely voters. Four years ago, the Marquette Poll showed Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump 46%-42% a month before the election in a head to head competition.

While in the Appleton area, Ms. Trump will talk about President Trump's record according to a written statement: "From cutting taxes to advancing school choice and increasing childcare affordability and paid parental leave for hardworking American families."

The president's daughter will be in the Fox Valley at a time when coronavirus cases are surging. A record number of positive cases has Wisconsin trending in the wrong direction.

Governor Tony Evers activated the Alternate Care Facility at State Fair Park after hospitalizations rates tripled in one month. It will be up and ready on Wednesday.

Evers also issued a new order last week to limit the size of crowds at bars, restaurants, and other public spaces to 25% capacity.

Eric Trump will be in Menomonee Falls Monday for an 'Operation MAGA' event.

Vice President Mike Pence travels to Waukesha on Tuesday for a campaign event at Weldall Manufacturing.

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin called out the VP's visit and the Trump administration's handling of the pandemic.

"Pence’s visit will only serve to remind Wisconsin voters how he and Trump failed to respond to COVID-19, leading to the economic collapse from which families across the Badger state are still suffering," said party spokesperson Phil Shulman in a statement.

Ivanka's visit to Wisconsin is part of a four-state trip starting today in Arizona.
