MILWAUKEE — Joe Biden's VP candidate, Sen. Kamala Harris, and Ivanka Trump, the president's adviser and daughter, both campaigned in Milwaukee Tuesday, though in different ways.

Harris attended a virtual campaign event in Milwaukee to promote early voting. She also celebrated her birthday, which is Oct. 20.

Several top Wisconsin Democrats attended the 'Get Out the Early Vote' rally, including Sen. Tammy Baldwin, Rep. Gwen Moore, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley.

Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump attended an in-person campaign event at the Polish Center in Milwaukee, where she talked with Republican lobbyist and columnist Mercedes Schlapp about President Donald Trump's policies regarding Wisconsin.

Ivanka Trump also promoted early voting in the Badger State, in a video posted to social media.

Tuesday marks the first day of early voting in Milwaukee and in other parts of Wisconsin. The state has become a battleground for the Biden and Trump campaigns, following Trump's narrow victory in the state against Hillary Clinton.
